Our Intermediate Program Is for Ages 2 to 4

A Brief Introduction to Math and Science 

Our Intermediate 2-day and 3-day Programs are geared to 2- to 4-year-old children who are not ready for a junior kindergarten and who have either already attended our Beginner Program or may not find it challenging enough. Blended between our Beginner and Advanced programs, it expands on the shape and colour foundation while giving a brief introduction to the world of math and science. We will begin to call certain items by their French name only while still working in a repetitive format (the black cat – un chat noir).

Music 

The music instruction will consist of rhythm recognition with a focus on lyric enunciation and song memorization.

Art 

Unlike our Beginner Program where we introduce art, we will now attempt more goal-orientated art projects where we are looking more for a specific objective than merely being happy with participation. Art is not pre-prepped, so the student is actually creating the piece on their own with only guidance from their instructor. This allows fine motor skills to develop naturally at their own pace.

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.

Theatre and Puppetry 

In addition, both intermediate programs have a section set aside for puppetry. On certain days, story time will be substituted for a puppet show. During our playtime, the students will be allowed free access to the puppets so that they can develop their own imaginative play. There is a vast selection of costumes, train sets, and building material to develop their fine motor skills as well as project planning. Strict attention has been paid to ensure that all activities are non-aggressive in nature, as a child learns best when they are in a fun and positive environment.
