More about the program-
At Foundations for Childhood, we understand that school readiness encompasses much more than just academic skills such as the alphabet, numbers, and colors. While these skills are important, we believe that a successful transition to school requires a child to have a range of social and emotional competencies that enable them to regulate their own emotions and understand others, engage in adequate play skills, promote effective problem-solving, and manage conflicts. That's why our school readiness program facilitated by a registered Play Therapist/ Certified Practicing Counsellor who uses targeted activities to develop these competencies in children.
Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs and interests of the children who attend and includes both purposeful teaching and child-led approaches and experiences. We use a range of activities, such as art, craft, construction, music, movement, stories, role-play, games, mindfulness, and relaxation, to support children's learning and development through play. By engaging in these activities, children not only develop their academic skills but also become more self-sufficient, confident, and emotionally and socially regulated.
Self-regulation is a crucial aspect of a child's development, and it develops quickly in the toddler and preschool years. By promoting self-regulation in our program, we prepare children for a successful start in school and ensure that they continue to benefit from their educational experiences throughout their lives. At Foundations for Childhood, we are committed to providing a holistic approach to school readiness that supports children's academic, social, and emotional development.
