Preschool

Our mission is to promote and enrich the growth of the whole child through the provision of a safe, nurturing, stimulating and fun program.

Our philosophy here at St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club Preschool allows children to take an active part in their learning in all developmental areas. We believe in cultivating learning through play, as it gives children the opportunity to make choices within a safe and supportive learning environment. We strive to work together with parents and our community, as a team, to enrich and promote growth through age appropriate planned programming; and designing a curriculum around children’s observations and interests, through activities which support learning in the social/emotional, cognitive/fine motor, language/early reading readiness, creative, sensory and gross motor areas.

St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club Preschool is licensed by the Ministry of Education and is assessed by the City of Toronto’s Quality Assessment.  To see our rating, go to www.toronto.ca/children.
