The St-Laurent Academy Daycare program prides itself on offering a differentiated curriculum to accommodate many different learning styles.
Social and Emotional Development
We nurture each child’s social and emotional development through fun games and activities where they will learn to take turns, play collaboratively, and express their feelings. They will also learn to build positive relationships with peers and adults and to increase their self-esteem and self-confidence.
At St-Laurent Academy, we believe a strong body leads to a strong mind. Our Daycare students have daily sessions of sports programming. Our physical education curriculum has been designed to build strong motor skills in a warm and nurturing environment. Each child will receive individual attention and progress at their own pace, while being exposed to a wide variety of activities, such as gymnastics, sports, dance, yoga, martial arts, skating, and games.
Young children are aware of their surroundings and interested in exploring and learning actively. Through our developmental approach and use of hands-on learning experiences they are able to gather, sort, and process information to further develop perceptive thinking skills.
Once a week our Preschool students participate in Science class. The children are introduced to astronomy, biology, and geology through fun hands-on activities, orchestrated by our Science Specialist. Highly interactive, our Science curriculum sparks their interest in learning more about the world around them, from the very small to the very large wonders of the world. Our preschoolers also visit our Outdoor Classroom at Macoun Marsh to experience the beauty of nature and the importance of protecting our environment. Visit our blog to read about some of the fantastic science classes we offer.
Language and Math Development
We foster each child’s natural curiosity to explore and develop skills through our engaging educational learning centers. Language and Math development are recognized as the building blocks for future education and are explored in a fun and creative manner.
Our early childhood educators are trained to in the infant sign language program, “Baby Signs”, shown to assist children with eye-contact, gross and fine motor skills and emotional bonding.
