Play Island Explorers Half Day Preschool/Kindergarten Program builds and encourages the potential in every child through nurturing, praising, and in an enriched, safe early learning environment.

In our preschool program, we teach the children in a half structured/play based environment. We see the potential in all children and strive to work with each child in a small group setting so each child will be able to reach its goals. Every child learns at their own pace, and here at Play Island Explorers we work with the child and ensure the child learns, but while enjoying the learning process. We make learning fun and exciting!


Play Island Explorers curriculum includes theme based weekly programming which will enhance the children’s cognitive, fine motor, and language skills. We will incorporate literacy, math concepts, science, music, reading, and language arts. Even more, the children will keep active in our indoor playground with fun interactive games, and sports play. During this time, the children will be given a healthy nut free snack. To learn more about our snack menu for the children please see our parent board outside the office.

Preschoolers will build a new love for learning and will be ready for Kindergarten in September!

What we do with the children daily:

  • Children gather for Circle time which consists of calendar, discussion on weekly theme topic, learning songs and story time.
  • Next we move on to table learning activities. These consists of practicing their fine motor skills (printing letters, numbers), and arts and crafts.
  • The children will have the opportunity to explore the different centres set up for free play, to learn and explore.
  • The children will be physically activity in our indoor playground which will consist of interactive group games, yoga, and sports play.


The program will run from September to June for the school year. To find out more about the availability for September start, please contact the Centre Director. Please feel free to email [email protected] for more information about our half-day preschool enrichment program.

Nutritious Healthy Snack

The children in our program will be provided a healthy snack in the middle of our program. The preschool menu is created from nutritious kids meal programs, and has been approved by kids. During snack time, the children will wash their hands, and then sit at a table. The snacks are set on the table, and we encourage the children to learn how to serve themselves and make their own food choices. The teachers are always there to assist with serving. The children and teachers sit and eat at the table together. This process will encourage the children to try new foods and create joy and title of the food they are consuming.

Nutritious Facts- the children will learn the basics of Canada’s Food Guide and the food groups which emphasis on vegetables, fruit, protein, dairy and grains.

Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Independence: Children will learn independance through hands on experiences. When children gain the chance to do things on their own, they are most likely to learn things efficiently, and confidence in themselves that they can do things without their parents always doing it for them. Through trial and error.
  • Self-regulation: We teach the children how to communicate with other children through proper communication and behaviour. We help manage and regulate their reactions to emotions they are feeling and help them get along with other people.
