​Licensed Preschool

Licensed Preschool at Champlain Heights Community Centre ages 3 to 5 years.

Our Nature Preschool programs use nature as place for play and exploration in all seasons, and strengthen the connection between children and the natural world. We spend a third of our time outside exploring and the remainder back in the classroom to deepen the children’s knowledge. Also, we provide a variety of developmentally appropriate activities in a safe, positive and nurturing environment.

Activities include free play, STEAM, arts and crafts, music, story time, baking, gym, snack time, as well as pre-planned field trips throughout the year.

Guided nature experiences by our licensed preschool teachers in Champlain Heights’ numerous parks and greenways offer children improved opportunities for authentic connections with nature.

There are a maximum of 20 children in each class and 2 qualified teachers.
This program runs from September to June and is closed for: Statutory holidays, Christmas Break (2 weeks), Spring Break (2 weeks).

Staff will contact parents in early 2022 (date to be announced) as classes are being formed for the upcoming September session.

Preschool is closed for summer break and will reopen September after Labour Day. We are open for registration during summer and available for information and inquires via email only.
