At Polka-Dot-Academy our pre-school program promotes a balance of positive learning and playing to build a strong foundation for your child’s future development at the JK/SK level. We provide programs like, History which introduces children to the past, the present and the future of planet Earth, Canadian history, traditions of children’s ancestors, and Canadian Holiday’s. Language development includes reading and writing as the basic form of learning, as well as, music, circle time, puppet shows, stories and poetry. Reading is being taught in a form of phonogram booklets, phonetic cards and puzzle words. Children are being encouraged to explain what they have read which helps them understand the story better, enrich vocabulary and develop their knowledge and language skills. Mathematics is being introduced to the children in order to develop their logical, sensorial, practical life, coordination and concentration skills. Age appropriate stories are read throughout the day by our enthusiastic staff, and we ensure that our daily reading programs will help enrich your child’s language skills. To add excitement to the concept of reading, we encourage children to choose their favorite stories from an array of books in our library.
