Full o'Beans Preschool & Full Time
Full o'Beans Preschool programs are designed to provide a learning environment that supports your child's growth and development in all areas. Experiencing new things and exploring ideas, learning how to interact with peers and make friends, and just having fun, that's preschool. Choose from morning sessions or all day care.
To register in full day programs, children must be thirty months old (two and a half years) to start attending. Registration and start days are ongoing as space allows.
For morning preschool sessions, all children must be thirty-two months by December 31. September to June programs only, registration begins in February of each year for the coming September.
Part-day morning programs include two options:
‘Classic’: This program offers a traditional 3 hour program with a set schedule, M/W/F or T/Th, from 9am to 12:00pm. All sessions include indoor and outdoor free play, activities, art, and story-times. Regular access to the Cuthbert Holmes Park, Meadow Park and library help us round out the program, as do in-class visitors. Open to all children who will be 36 months December 31st and older, this program is a good introduction to the routines and expectations of preschool.
‘Flex’: Our Flex program offers a longer program, a full 4 hours, and the option to choose the days that work best for your family (minimum 2/wk.) This program features a large outdoor component, with as much as 2 hours each day outside in our playground and/or Cuthbert Holmes Park, a natural wooded park behind the Rec. Centre. Indoor activities are also available each day as well as library times and in-class visitors too. This program is open to all children who are 3 years old by September 1st and older.
Both our ‘Classic’ and our ‘Flex’ programs provide opportunities for children to play and grow alongside their peers and Educators. They will have many chances to explore new materials and learn new skills. Children will also be supported as they learn how to gain independence and navigate what it means and how it feels to be part of the classroom. Regular active play is encouraged to help build such skills as coordination and balance. It also builds physical strength, stamina, and dexterity.
Snacks are provided daily for each group, with lunch coming from home in the 4 hour group. There is a two week closure in December as well as during spring break in March. We are also closed on all stat holidays.
Full o’ Beans Full-Day Child Care
Our Full o’ Beans Child Care is our full-time childcare program for children 36 months to school aged. This program provides opportunities for children to learn and grow through play both inside the classroom as well as outdoors. The children will be provided with an environment that encourages them to learn new skills, explore new materials and gain independence while building meaningful relationships with their peers and educators. Located in our Child and Family Centre, we are open from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. We are closed on all statutory holidays and have two annual week-long closures in December and June. As we value continued growth and education we close for up to three staff professional development days annually as well. We offer a complimentary meal option for children over the age of one year old. We are able to accommodate most common food sensitivities and lifestyle choices but can not guarantee our kitchen is allergen free. We ask that milk, formula or breast milk comes from home if required.
