Small, personal class sizes that suit every independent need.
Grandin Préscolaire is a warm and welcoming bilingual environment for three to five-year-olds. Our goal is to provide a balance of stimulating activities and outings aimed at the social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative development of our children. We achieve this through our “Learning through play” Philosophy giving children the opportunity to learn French and to have fun at the same time.
At Grandin Préscolaire we are following all Alberta Health Guidelines. We send our love to all our families at this time. As things are changing quickly we will have more information closer to the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

Learning Through Play
Play-based learning does not mean that the children just do what they like all day. There will be times when the children come together as a group where they will learn to listen to each other, share information, follow rules and partake in group activities. Play-based activities don’t replace intentional teaching, rather complement and enhance it! In our play-based learning setting children will be provided with long periods of uninterrupted playtime. They will have the opportunity to follow their own interests. They are encouraged to initiate activities and be self-directed with the support of their teachers. They learn to take ownership of their work. They will be gently molded into independent children with initiative and the confidence to take risks, knowing that there is no right or wrong way.
