Preschool Program in Calgary – Achieving Kindergarten Readiness

For active learners, preschool is a crucial stop on the journey toward elementary school and future academic success. In preparation for kindergarten, Lynnwood Learning Centre provides a more structured learning program for our preschool-aged children, but still highly encourages a learning through play environment. In the morning, the children participate in a more typical kindergarten atmosphere, where they learn their ABCs, colours, shapes, numbers, and practice writing their name. We work to ensure that our children achieve significant development advancements, learn to communicate effectively, and build collaborative skills by working independently and in groups through a robust early childhood education approach.

In the afternoon, the children are given the opportunity to learn through play via various play stations in their room. Various art techniques and colour concepts help bolster creativity, problem solving, and self-expression. Cooperative pretend play and the creation of stories helps build emotional expression. To enhance their learning further, we include enrichment programs that occur once a week.
