School Readiness children have been exploring and problem solving in the classrooms.

Starting preschool is an exciting milestone for your young child’s life, marked by their emerging sense of independence and expanding social, language, and thinking skills.  School Readiness provides children with various opportunities to participate in early childhood and kindergarten readiness programs that enable them to enter school with the skills and behaviours needed to progress and flourish.
