The Prep School is a special place where children are challenged to try new things, to discover and to learn in a secure, supportive environment. Students enter the Prep School in Junior Primary and proceed to Grade 4 in our own unique version of a Junior School. It’s all about great beginnings, talented faculty, and the individual attention the children receive to guide them through these important formative years.
Our Junior Primary class follows the Emergent Curriculum model, with a team approach to teaching and learning. We have staffed the Junior Primary with an 8 to 1 ratio, consistent with Nova Scotia Community and Family Services regulations. These faculty members are Early Childhood Education (ECE) Specialists.
The nurturing academic development begins with our Junior Primary teachers. Students are encouraged to ask questions and to explore newly discovered ideas. In a warm, supportive Prep School environment, the children receive the individual attention they need to journey confidently through the Prep School.
Students receive a strong foundation in literacy, numeracy, science, and French, with teachers who differentiate the curriculum to appropriately support each student.
Daily physical education classes allow students to develop coordination and skill as team players. They have a lot of fun at the same time. Extra-curricular sports include running club, sports club, swimming, cross-country, and badminton.
