"When children pretend, they’re using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand.
A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero."
~ Fred Rogers
Why come to pre-school on the farm?
Children thrive in a farm environment. Children and mud are a harmonious fit! Exposing children to a rural environment allows them the opportunity to freely explore the natural world without the worries of busy roads and other safety concerns. One of my favourite moments is watching the children run through the 2 acre field. The freedom and independence this brings can easily be seen on eight happy little faces.
Why is A Growing Place so special?
A Growing Place is a unique early childhood program with space for eight children. This small group provides children with a gentle introduction to the group experience and allows for more individualized attention. The small group fosters close and lasting friendships between the children. The four hour program ensures that children have the time and space to move through the daily activities in a relaxed manner.
