Start your child off on the right foot with Bloom Learning Centre’s half-day preschool classes. We offer fun and interactive preschool classes for children who are 3-5 years of age (or turning 3 by December 31st of the school year). The course is based on three very important foundational objectives: socio-emotional development, intellectual development and physical development, with intellectual development being the primary focus.
Our program is a kindergarten preparation course designed to prepare children to be successful when they enter the school system. The preschool classes provide your child with a solid foundation for lifelong learning and help to develop a positive attitude towards learning experiences. Fun and engaging activities achieve curriculum-focused learning objectives such as early numeracy skills, colour and shape recognition, fine motor and printing skills and crucial early literacy skills such as letter recognition and letter sounds. Students will also learn logical thinking skills, technological literacy, vocabulary development and social skills. Our teaching techniques include circle time instruction, large group discussions, individual reinforcement activities and group play and exploration to achieve the set learning objectives for our preschool programs.
Children are also encouraged to learn through participation in special events, guest speakers and general social interaction and observation.

Choose between morning or afternoon classes, with options to have your child attend either one, two or four days per week. All skills are covered in all courses, however, the four day class allows for more time to be spent on learning objectives and more opportunities for concept reinforcement. It has been our experience that students who attend our four day program demonstrate additional growth both socially and academically.
Bloom accepts preschool registrations for the current school year up until January 1, 2023 provided space is available. Contact us today regarding availability in our current classes.
Bloom Learning Centre focuses on the Montessori approach, where children are able to focus on their interests using real life materials and the teacher is a guide to the students, rather than facilitator. Here at Bloom, we encompass practical life, sensory learning, and beginning language and math skills to allow your child to be not only better prepared for Kindergarten and elementary school, but also life. Following the Montessori approach, we also have a huge emphasis on nature and focus on care of the environment. Our school also has other areas for play, art, music, circle time.
