Little Seedlings Program
Our Little Seedlings program is designed to allow children who aren’t quite ready for our preschool program, but who are ready for some time away from their primary caregivers, to socialize with other children their age, and learn to follow the direction of adults other than their parents.
The children follow a routine similar to that in our preschool program, including lining up & washing hands before snack.
Little Sprouts Preschool offers a comprehensive and inclusive program that is affordable for parents. Our class sizes remain small, so our adult : child ratio also remains small. We cap our Little Seedlings classes 12 students, maintaining a low ratio of 1 Adult : 6 Children.
Our Little Seedlings Program encourages development and growth, and is a great introduction of preschool to those little learners almost ready to start their pre-kindergarten journey! Our program is art, music, and play-based, with a focus on fun! We spend our days engaging in imaginative play, story-telling, and completing open-ended art activities. Once a week, we head across the hall to do Gym Activities in Community Links’ large space!
Our preschool program is structured around quality curriculum and routine essential to encouraging development in a fun and caring environment that the children can feel secure in. Little Sprouts Preschool combines education with play-based programming to provide the best learning environment possible. Our 3/4 split classes are designed to allow older children to model behaviour for the younger students, and the younger students to gain experience and knowledge from the older students. We offer this class as a 2 or 3 day option each week.
Little Sprouts Preschool offers a comprehensive and inclusive program that is affordable for parents. Our class sizes remain small, so our adult : child ratio also remains small.

Our Preschool Program encourages development and growth throughout the year by integrating limitless learning possibilities. Our program is play-based with an emphasis on routine and structure, providing children with opportunities to understand themselves and the world around them. The children in our program develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially through play and planned activities. We practice first and last name recognition, recognition and names of colours, shapes, numbers through 31, the days of the week, and the months of the year. All of our transitions and many of our lessons are taught through song. Both of our two-day and three-day per week curriculums are developed around monthly themes, each day the children will complete a corresponding craft and story.
Our program also introduces the children to French through song activities. Once per week, we head across the hall to do gym activities in Community Links’ large space!
