Saltcoats Playschool

Saltcoats Play School is a play based program for 3 and 4 year olds. Children attend Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:30. School begins in October and runs until the end of May.

Play School gives the opportunity for children to learn and explore by playing and manipulating different tools throughout the year, such as play dough, paint, water table activities, stories, sharing time, themes, trips and many more activities.

Children are encouraged to do decision making both on their own and also working with others to learn how to make decisions together by using words instead of fists.

Although the children have much "free time" it helps them to develop and explore such important skills as socialization, language development, communication, listening, imagination and much more. We try and stay to the same routine and transition so the children know what to expect and get comfortable and familiar with "their school".

Play School encourages children to be independent and proud of their achievements throughout their day. School is play based as this is how our kids learn, by doing and exploring, not by sitting.
