Start with our Beginner Program for Ages 19 Months to 2 ½ Years

Nursery School for Toddlers 

Active Learning’s Beginner Program for ages 19 months to 2 ½ years is an un-parented nursery school program for toddlers. We will give your child an introduction to music and French language arts. As this will be the first time your child is in a classroom environment, the main goal of this program is to foster and encourage participation. We seek to build a child’s independence and help them to recognize their peers as people of value to be respected and learned from. Our program helps your child learn patience, socialization skills, and group activities while providing the freedom for independent discovery.

Music 

Music instruction will be in a sing-along format with basic rhythm instruments.

Art 

Our instructors will introduce shapes, colours, numbers, and animals in an art-based format geared toward name recognition (e.g., "Point to the blue square"). Typically, when students are working on a piece, we will try to guide the outcome; however, the students are allowed to go where their creativity leads them. Our greatest victory is willing and enthusiastic participation in the activity.

Movement 

A new addition to our program is our movement curriculum, which has been developed by a dance instructor at a local studio. As this is a 2-day-a-week program, we will rotate activities based on a 2-week format. The first day of the first week will focus on basic dance instruction, learning to pair physical movement with musical inspiration. The second day will focus on sports-based movement. We will rotate between floor hockey and soccer for gross motor skills while including ball placement games like basketball and bowling for hand to eye coordination.



The first day of the second week will focus on basic gymnastics and tumbling, which helps with balance development and dexterity. The second day of week 2 will again be a sports day as we are trying to foster cooperation and physical dexterity. The children must come able to walk, eat independently, and have at least begun potty training at home.
