Academics is unique in its program offerings. Many daycares and childcares do not offer a teacher-led curriculum, while the typical preschool class is two to three hours in length, and two to three days a week. Academics preKindergarten seeks to provide hours suitable for any family accompanied by our proprietary Aggregate curriculum with age-tailored prescribed learning outcomes to maximize early learning.
Academics preKindergarten currently offers full day programs for two, three, and five days a week. Drop-off and pick-up times are not set; however, we recommend that your child attends Academics for around eight hours each day to maximize their learning. Please contact your preferred Academics preKindergarten location for a tour and information on program availability.
Your child will be placed in one of the following groups:
- Baby program (for children 1 year old, turning 2)
- PreKindergarten 1 program (for children 2 years old, turning 3)
- PreKindergarten 2 program (for children 3 years old, turning 4)
- PreKindergarten 3 program (for children 4 years old, turning 5)
Academics preKindergarten provides a structured schedule with prescribed learning outcomes for each age group and classroom.
We also have the option of drop-in days for our registered students.
Our program runs for twelve months a year. During that time, we have certain closure days. Please note the closure dates under school events.
Academics hosts events small and large. From time to time, we host on-site field trip activities and neighbourhood walks. Parents are actively involved in our Father’s Day Barbeque, Mother’s Day Tea, and Pumpkin Patch Family Field Trip.
We also host a large Winter Show production. Our students prepare for weeks to display their hard work to their parents through a combination of speech, song, and music.
Academics preKindergarten hosts a Graduation Ceremony. We aim to prepare students for their formal education experiences and therefore we simulate the environment as closely as possible. This Graduation Ceremony instills a sense of accomplishment in our students as they move upwards to the next classroom or, in the case of our preKindergarten 3s, to Kindergarten.
