Roots and Wings School

Where the essence of every child is honoured

Our Preschool offers:

  • A full-time program for 2.5 to 5 year olds
  • 2 teachers for maximum 10 children
  • Parental presence in class until full integration for each child
  • The opportunity for children to develop at their own pace so they can flourish into balanced well-rounded individuals.
  • A healthy organic snack every day 

With patience, love and understanding we attend to each child’s needs.

Preschool weekly activities include:

Free and spontaneous play, cooking, gardening, walks, Yoga, storytelling, songs and games, fun and fascinating experiments, and creative arts.

These activities are non-academic in nature yet crucial for building a strong foundation for future academic and life success.   

In all activities it is the process that counts. Each new experience offers children the opportunity to understand the world around them and enjoy the act of creating.

Parents are required to actively participate in their child’s educational journey. Once a month they share with the class a passion, a talent they have. This creates an even richer environment where children are exposed to many new experiences.

Garry Landreth

Free and spontaneous play is vital in a child’s life. Through play children understand and integrate new experiences. They learn self-expression, develop creative thinking, discover their talents and have fun.
