About Our Preschools
Our preschool programs are located within McKee Elementary School and Rideau Park School. The program provides a loving, caring and safe environment for your preschooler. We provide an enriched program designed to help prepare your preschooler for Kindergarten by focusing on your child's social, physical, emotional and intellectual needs. Discovery Preschool follows the school calendar year and operates from September to June.
The school curriculum follows the philosophy of "Learning Through Themes." Each week has a theme and the daily crafts and worksheets are associated with this theme. The program has 2 fun themes and 2 educational themes per month as well as 3 "in-class" field trips during the school year to compliment our weekly themes.
Parents receive a newsletter each month and have the opportunity to follow along and "see" the exciting things that are happening in our classroom.
We are a Program of Choice
Discovery Place Preschool is a program of choice. This means that there are no forced duty days, bake sales, casinos or toy washing. You can decide how often you would like to volunteer within our classroom. (Parents who do volunteer once a week receive the program at 1/2 price.) This helps create a beautiful learning environment for the children by having consistent parental assistants/volunteers who are able to be in the classroom without any stress.
