Montessori Educare 2, situated in the centre of Saanichton (Brentwood Bay), is a fully licensed daycare facility. This beautiful little preschool offers a stimulating, creative, and nurturing environment for children from 30 months to school age.
The facility is open from 8.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m. and 5 day, 3 day and 2 day programs are offered. The morning program follows a Montessori curriculum, the prepared environment providing activities in Practical Life, Sensorial work, Art, Language, Math. and the Cultural Subjects. Circle time, Story and outside play round out the morning’s activities.
After a pleasant and hurry-free lunch, the children move into the delightful Rainbow Room, which offers opportunity for imaginative and dramatic play, including block play and construction, games, puzzles, manipulatives and crafts. There is group time for music, story and games and an extended outdoor playtime.
Although there is no set nap time, a separate, supervised area is available for those children needing an afternoon nap.
The lovely, spacious backyard play area is well equipped with toys, including climber, pedal carousel, trikes, and sand and water play. The children also have their own little garden for planting flowers and vegetables.
The preschool can accommodate up to 16 students, who are under the guidance of two warm, caring, Montessori teachers.
Parent/teacher communication is important to us. A calendar outlining coming events, projects, etc. is issued each month along with a monthly newsletter. A constantly updated Parent/Teacher notice board features monthly photo displays illustrating work and play at the preschool and provides the children the opportunity to share what they have been doing with their parents. Special events and celebrations help to bring parents, teachers and children together in fellowship and fun.
Visitors and observations are welcome.
