Dear parents,

 

We would like to welcome you to the new regular program at Garderie Harmonie. We have prepared a reference in order to follow the life and progressions of your children in the classroom.

 

During the year, we will do interesting, fun and educational activities which will promote the overall development of your child. Our goal is to facilitate an easy and smooth transition to school. For this we teach children the necessary skills in order to be successful. The program that follow is based on the concept 'play is magic'.

WHY PLAY? Preschool children learn in different ways than children of school age: Play is essential to early learning. Play is the main way in which children learn and develop ideas about the world. It helps them to acquire necessary skills for critical thinking and leadership. Playing children understand how to solve problems, how to make friends, how to speak, how to enjoy the world around them, and how to use all of the new information they found in the class, such as; numbers, colors, letters... All of these skills form a basis, a basis for the love of learning.

 

Our program is not complicated and very flexible, because it allows educators to prepare activities by age, interest and development of the child. 

 

During the week the children have the opportunity to participate in various scientific experiments, courses in English and French, music lessons, artistic activities, small-scale productions of songs and dance, computer courses, outings to the park, in the yard or take beautiful walks.

 

We have a good collaboration with the representatives of the police, doctors and firefighters who always come to our daycare during the week of  security or careers and provides us with informative and fun activities.

The class will begin at 9: 30, to ensure that your child can benefit from educational activities and to not disrupt their flow, you will be asked to arrive to class on time.

 

It is also important to follow given calendars because some activities require to bring something from home or to dress your children in a certain way. These activities are much more effective when everyone participates and that way nobody feels excluded. Thank you for your participation. We cannot wait to start this journey with you!

Activities
 

3 steps for every day

It is important for our team to be able to develop each child's skills. To do so, we plan three different activities per day:

  • A gross motor activity in which the child will develop a sense of balance and physical activity.

  • A fine motor activity during which the child will develop manual skills (holding a pencil, scissors etc.)

  • A cognitive activity that will allow the child to develop his language, his attitude, his critical thinking etc.
