SCROLL DOWN FOR PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS
We follow the Black Gold school calendar. All Black Gold PD days and holidays are followed,
and a yearly calendar with those details will be provided.
Our 2 Day Program
Our 2 Day program is designed for children who will be 3 years of age before December 31st of that school year.
2 day students then have priority to register into the 3 day program for the following year.
Our 2 Day program provides students with the opportunity to become accustomed to school routines, peer socialization, and being part of a classroom community. Problem solving, learning to share and take turns, and finding successful ways to regulate emotions are all part of their learning in the 2 day program. They will have exposure to literacy and numeracy skills, and be given opportunities to engage in imaginative play and express creativity.
We offer a variety of special in-school presentations throughout the school year and we also enjoy taking the children on walks to nearby parks. We invite parents to attend out of school fieldtrips.
Children must be toilet trained before they can attend (pullups are not allowed). If this is not quite accomplished in September, please contact us to discuss options.
The 2 Day program runs:
Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 am -11:00 am
The cost of our 2 day program is $135.00 per month, with an additional, non-refundable, $75.00 registration fee.
Subsidy is available.
Our 3 Day Program
Our 3 Day program is designed for children who will be 4 years of age before December 31 of the school year, with the intentions of continuing on to Kindergarten the following year. Repeating the 3 Day program is acceptable should the parents decide to hold back their child for another year. Children can attend even if they have not attended the 2 Day class.
Our 3 day program provides students with opportunities to engage in imaginative play and express creativity. They learn to follow the routines of school and how to be a successful participant in a classroom community. We expose our students to the letters of the alphabet and explicitly teach the letters, developing their phonemic awareness, during storytime.
Our 3 day students learn about various children's authors in our "author studies" and they participate in many different music and movement opportunities. They will begin to develop literacy and numeracy skills as the school year progresses. We offer a variety of special field trips throughout the school year and we also enjoy taking the children on walks to nearby parks. We invite parents to attend any outings or field trips we might plan.
Children must be toilet trained completely before they can attend (pullups are not allowed). If this is not quite accomplished in September, please contact us to discuss options.
The 3 Day program runs:
Mon. Wed. and Fri. mornings: 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. OR
Mon. Wed. and Fri. afternoons: 12:30p.m. - 3:00p.m.
The cost of our 3 day program is $175.00 per month, with an additional non-refundable $75.00 registration fee.
Subsidy is available.

This is a SPECIALIZED PROGRAM, focusing on process art AND music development for young children. Children will engage with exciting art provocations that are created by staff to ignite and expand the imaginations of children.
Part of this program also includes singing songs, finger plays and playing a variety of musical instruments. This program will help children to explore and develop their musical and artistic capabilities.

Third Term: April 2, 2024 - June 13, 2024
CAN I REGISTER MY CHILD IN ALL 3 TERMS?
Yes! Priority will be given to our students who are currently enrolled, before we open up spots in terms 2 and 3 to the general public.
IF MY CHILD IS IN YOUR 3 DAY PROGRAM, CAN WE ALSO REGISTER IN THE RSG ARTISANS PROGRAM?
Yes! We would love to work with your child 5 days a week, and the 3 Day program will be different from the RSG ARTISANS program. We also welcome children who are currently enrolled in Kindergarten, assuming they are not in Kindergarten on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
