Our immersive recreational programs are offered in small class sizes within an encouraging environment, include a wide array of offerings and are led by passionate and enthusiastic teachers.
A strong base in early literacy is the best gift you can give your child. Our reading program assesses and creates individual programs for their success, building confidence while reinforcing alphabet and sound recognition. The program teaches children the basic concepts of literacy to begin reading; strategies include small group instruction, movement, fine motor skills and games. Your child will find their confidence and learn to love reading!
Early Math allows children to get started with Math practice in a fun way. It is ideal for children aged four to six years and is a wonderful way to get kids ready for preschool and kindergarten. They will work through early numeracy and learn math through play. Children will be taught basic math concepts using various curriculums to help them learn while playing and having fun through activities. The concepts include understanding size, shape, and patterns, ability to count verbally (first forward, then backward), recognizing numerals, identifying more and less of a quantity, understanding one-to-one correspondence, etc.
Our dance programs are based on multi-discipline dance style learning, a solid technique base while having fun and working on unique choreography. Our children learn the ever-important technical base for each style. We also believe that being a well-rounded dancer today means more than just learning the technique – there needs to be a deliberate focus on developing dance expression and individual style – the “wow” factor.
Our Montessori curriculum is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Centred on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play, the Montessori method develops independent thinking, motivation, persistence and discipline by allowing children to respond to their natural drive to work and learn.
Our dedicated and passionate early childhood educators deliver an innovative, engaging and proven curriculum that ignites a love of learning and inspires and encourages individuality in every Manotick child. Their nurturing and attentive approach offers each child a home-away-from-home experience.
Two-way communication is important. Monthly newsletters, report cards, parent interviews, open houses and our proprietary app (BrightPath Connect™) are designed to increase the interaction between our centres and families.
Children need nutrition to grow in both mind and body. Believing that food choices throughout childhood fuel life long eating habits, our menu is crafted by a Registered Nutritionist, is prepared in-house daily and reflects those beliefs.
