Education Program

Preschool Program

At North Rocks Preschool and Long Day Care Centre Day Care, our Preschool Program focuses on nurturing strong academic and wellbeing foundations through a balance of play-based and structured learning experiences.

Children have access to interactive learning stations, ample open-ended resources, extensive opportunities to develop independence skills, and a spacious outdoor play area.

Structured group learning experiences also occur throughout the day to provide children with opportunities to practice core school readiness skills.

The goal of the Preschool Program is to provide children with opportunities to build their learning confidence and competence in all areas progressively.

Preschool Daily Routine

The daily routine in our preschool environment caters to the individual needs and interests of the children. It provides children with a sense of security as they know what to expect throughout the day.

Children enjoy individual and group learning experiences, indoor and outdoor play, social mealtimes, and spontaneous and intentional teaching times.

Regular toileting and hand washing occur throughout the day as well as rest and relaxation times. We offer additional school readiness activities for preschoolers who no longer rest during the day.

Families receive daily updates about their child’s learning, eating, and rest patterns via our family communication app.
