Albert College offers a Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) program for children 2.5 to 3 years old. The Pre-K program shares space with the Junior Kindergarten program in our Early Primary Learning Centre (EPLC) located at 28 Highland Avenue.
The purpose of the Pre-K program is to focus on the development of the whole child – physical, social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual – in preparation for early and ongoing success in our formal Junior and Senior Kindergarten.
Pre-K students experience active, experiential learning through play and a comprehensive, integrated curriculum of carefully-planned and child-centred daily activities. The Albert College Pre-K program helps children develop language and communication skills and problem-solving skills as they learn to cooperate with others and make new friendships in a small and caring family environment. The evolution and development of our Pre-K program will continue to be driven by the school’s core values of individuality, teaching excellence and participation.
No more making lunches! Lunch is served to full-time students each day at the EPLC. Healthy snacks are provided to both part-time and full-time students.
What are Parents saying about Pre-Kindergarten at Albert College?
"My daughter is learning French, singing, playing in the gym, spraying fire hoses on field trips, eating delicious varied meals, and still taking time for a snooze. What's not to love? The small class size creates a much more enriched experience than a daycare or preschool. My daughter loves it... a lot!" - Pre-K Parent
"My daughter was ready for something more than daycare and that is what she found at Albert College - a classroom that fostered individual development in a stable environment. Her creative side really came out and basic skills were taught right from day one. Within the first week our daughter was speaking French to us! Her teachers are very interested in her as an individual and the amount of personal attention she receives is the reason we will continue to send her to Albert." - Pre-K Parent
