JOY PRESCHOOL

PURPOSE

To provide a biblically based pre-school program that acts as an introduction to structured educational activities. This program works as a gradual transition into full-time public, private or Christian schooling. It serves families with young children in our community.

Philosophy

Joy Preschool is an enriching program providing a warm, caring atmosphere where children may choose to participate in various child and adult directed activities, in order to promote healthy overall development. In a positive learning environment, children, through play experiences, the guidance of qualified staff and careful planning, will be exposed to activities at their level of development that will stimulate cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual growth. All spiritual and moral teaching will be in agreement with the Statement of Faith of Calvary Baptist Church.

facilities

Joy Preschool is located on the second floor of Calvary Baptist Church, including full elevator access. We have two large classrooms filled with natural light providing a bright and warm learning environment. We also offer a full gymnasium for kids to engage in fun, physical activity.

Staff

Each program is taught by RECE qualified and experienced staff. Joy Preschool is licensed by the Ontario Ministry of education and follows the regulations and requirements of the Early Childhood Education Years Act, 2014. We require all staff and volunteers who have direct contact with children to have a current Vulnerable Sector Criminal Reference Check. In addition, our early childhood educators are registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators. For the safety and benefit of our students, our staff is also trained in First-Aid and CPR. To keep you informed, documentation of your child's progress is completed each month throughout the year.
