Programs

2, 3 or 5-Morning Nursery School or 4-Afternoon Nursery School

Our school days include circle time, where we welcome each other and do activities related to the calendar and the weather, as well as cognitive learning and science exploration. We have a snack time, which includes a washroom routine and a healthy snack and drink. There is a wide variety of daily activities for the children to choose from, such as creative play, arts and crafts, and play-based learning. Monthly calendars and newsletters are distributed to all of our families, which outline the programming themes for the month (for example, dinosaurs, outer space, underwater life). Outdoor play is incorporated into the curriculum (weather-permitting) such as tobogganing and outdoor games. Theme-related field trips, such as the pumpkin patch in the fall, the maple sugar bush in spring, and Ripley’s Aquarium are always a fun time for everyone.

Our ECE teachers surround your child with encouragement, allowing them to grow and learn in preparation for Grade One. We offer a program appropriate to each child’s needs and accept each child as a unique individual. At Erin Mills Co-op self-esteem and confidence are built on each child’s strengths and interests.

Fun! Fun! Fun!
