Preschool Programs

Each child's learning and development needs are as unique as they are. At Sunflower Early Learning Society, we offer multiple programs, providing educational care designed to inspire imagination, spark curiosity, and encourage discovery through play. 

Each program is age-appropriate and designed to prepare your children for their educational journeys. We use the Reggio Emilia philosophy in each program and provide engaging, themed classroom activities that ignite a love of learning and exploration in your child.

Classes for 3's

Preschoolers are more adventurous and curious about their surroundings, and our teachers stay one step ahead of their students. Each day is thoroughly planned out by what their students show interest in. 

In this program, our teachers begin to introduce concepts like opposites, identify emotions and basic directional skills and independence. 

Classes for 4's

Our pre-kindergarten classes focus on kindergarten readiness. Your child's teacher will work with you and your child to ensure they are socially, emotionally, cognitively, and behaviourally prepared for the demands of a kindergarten classroom. 

Our teachers use kindergarten benchmarks and continually assess your child's development to ensure they start kindergarten with confidence.
