The Creative Preschool of East Toronto provides a secure, stimulating and flexible environment in which children may develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. We help children and parents deal with the process of separation and learn that school is a fun place to be. Since 1979 we have provided an environment in which children develop social and thinking skills through arts, crafts, drama, puzzles and free play activities. We use a whole language and whole math approach that stimulates language and math concepts in every activity. Our science and critical thinking activities encourage children to think of unique and creative solutions in collaboration with others. The adults assist the children as they develop group skills, the ability to problem solve and self-discipline. The Creative Preschool offers a morning preschool program for children ages 2 ½ to 4 years. In the afternoon we also have a preschool/kindergarten program for children 3 to 6 years in the Young Explorers Program. Our After School Club for JK through grade 3 children is available 3:20 to 5:30 pm. As a non-profit co-operative centre we provide children with the opportunity to interact with other children and learn social skills to prepare for the larger world around them. At the same time, parents have the opportunity to be involved with their children’s experiences. Parents participate in the classroom once every three to four weeks, contributing to snack and being part of the teaching team for the day. Our board of directors is made up of volunteer parents who are responsible for the running of the corporation while early childhood education staff is responsible for implementing an educational program to achieve the objectives of the co-operative.

After a trip to the washroom, a group of West room children pass by the office chatting away to their peers and Rawia and Alison. One of the children remark " I think we need to get magazines for when we are in the washroom !". :) Happy Wednesday, hope to see you all at the party on Friday !

Heard during music with Lisa today: We had just finished playing the bells and singing "Jingle Bells" Lisa asked if there was another song that we sing this time of year, with an animal that has antlers and a red nose"? First boy: " A unicorn!" Second boy: " I know !..... A pony ! " Never a dull moment at Creative Preschool.
