The circle times, activity centres and gymnastics curriculum are planned to include the following subjects during the preschool year:
We will enhance your child’s health and well-being using a fun, active, safe, multi-movement gymnastics preschool program. Each class focuses on building skills (e.g. tumbling, apparatus skills, obstacle courses & games, etc.) in a fun, positive environment.
Each day includes a warm-up (i.e. a game, stretch and group activity) before moving on to the apparatus circuits. Salto’s program helps children develop vital motor skills; improve coordination, flexibility and strength.
Your child will learn to recognize letters and sounds using the Ichy's Alphabet. Introductory pre-printing activities will be offered on a regular basis to three and four year olds and skills will be refined in the four and five year old classes. They will work on tracing, recognizing and printing their names.
We will use little activities to create awareness of big ideas like communication skills, financial responsibility and global consciousness.
Finger plays, nursery rhymes, poetry, stories and more are utilized to enhance your child’s vocabulary and encourage a love for books.
Hands-on activities encourage exploration of bugs, animals and rocks. Concepts such as weights and measures are discovered through play and at the sensory table.
Snack time encourages good eating habits, learning and use of table manners. Every attempt is made to ensure that the preschool environment is safe for children with food allergies. Please feel free to make an appointment with our preschool director to discuss the specifics of our food allergies policies and procedures.
Salto’s “tickle trunk” is filled with costumes that ignite your child’s imagination! As super heroes, grown-ups and other community workers, and by playing at the Little Tykes kitchen and tool areas, your child experiences role playing, creativity and learns socialization skills.
Activities focus on learning about self, home, family, transportation and the community.
Our art projects correspond with each week's theme. The projects encourage creativity as well as develop fine motor skills.
