Unique program offerings.

At Academics Prekindergarten, classes are structured to optimize on the child’s interests and support their learning. Children are divided into their classes by the year they are born. Each age group has prescribed learning outcomes tailored to their developmental needs and growth. Our programs are as follows:

  • Baby (10 months to 2 Years Old)
  • PreK 1 (2 to 3 Years Old )
  • PreK 2 (3 to 4 Years Old)
  • PreK 3 (4 to 5 Years Old)

Flexible, Just Like You!

We currently offer full day programs for two, three, and five days a week. Drop-off and pick-up times are recommended, but parents have the flexibility to meet their personal schedules.  We recommend that children attend school, for a maximum of eight hours each day for balance and wellness.

Fun-Filled Activities For The Children All Year Long.

We’re focused on providing a well-rounded experience for our students with exciting and fun filled activities planned throughout the year. These include spontaneous neighbourhood walks and on-site field trips. Through these our students are exposed to amazing teachable moments everyday. We also host our annual parent participation  Father’s Day Barbeque, Mother’s Day tea and off site Pumpkin Patch Family field trip!

Children star in a large Winter Show production which combines public speaking, dance, song, and music. Our students prepare for months to display their talent and effort to their parents and peers.  It is an opportunity to build self-confidence, learn to collaborate and experience success.

Our Graduation Ceremony, instills a sense of accomplishment as they head to Kindergarten. We prepare students for whatever their next educational experiences will throw at them. It is an occasion to celebrate their successes and support their growth.

We believe in uniforms.

We require all children 2 years old and up to be in uniform every day and our Babies to be in school colours. Having children in uniform encourages children, families and teachers to focus on learning at school. It reduces stress for families in the morning while dressing, especially as children start developing their individual identities. We want to teach children that what makes them truly unique are the ideas and thoughts they share.
