pre-school program

Capital Royal preschool is for ages 4years - 5 years. Our schedule and curriculum is designed to add more structure, decreasing flexibility and minimizing transitions. Our daily routine consists of teacher- initiated activities, large group times, quiet reading, large motor, meals, nap, and clean up. The classroom teacher team changes the equipment in the classroom every three to four weeks to provide children with a variety of age-appropriate toys and equipment to engage with during child-initiated playtime. Large group activities increase the child's attention span and listening skills while developing confidence in a group setting by enhancing social and emotional skills. Curriculum is developed on a weekly basis, focusing on a variety of subjects. Preschool teachers use a number of strategies and activities to encourage growth and development, including: playful interactions, songs, stories, positive reinforcement, direction, redirection, and modeling of appropriate behaviour. The younger preschool program focuses on expanding social skills; independence, problem-solving skills, health and safety habits, and a strong emphasis on helping children recognize and verbalize emotions. Teachers also use an anti- violence curriculum, Second Step, in the Younger Preschool Room.

The older preschool schedule and curriculum are designed to assist in preparing children for kindergarten. The program continues to build off of our younger preschool goals of adding more structure, decreasing flexibility, and minimizing transitions. The daily routine consists of teacher-initiated activities, large group times, reading, writing, science, math, large motor, meals, rest, clean up, and child-initiated activities and play.
