Heritage Pointe - Preschool
Welcome to our Preschool!
Welcome to our Preschool, we are very excited to be a part of the Heritage Pointe Community! We are located in the plaza on Dunbow Road at the Lake at Heritage Pointe. Just one exit passed Cranston on Deerfoot or one light passed Legacy on McLeod, we are minutes away!
Our tailored focus to the development of the whole child means that every child will find a happy home here. Our Vision is to create a fun, innovative, creative and safe environment to develop the “whole child", intellectually, socially, cognitively and physically. We will engage children to learn through play, exploring, experimenting and one another. Providing them with a sense of security, belonging and self while being a part of a classroom of caring and respecting others.
We have 3 year and 4-year-old programs available daily. Each program has a minimum of two qualified teachers with over 20 years combined experience. We include professional music and yoga classes as part of our monthly programs for all classes.
We also take every advantage of our huge outdoor play spaces within Heritage Pointe including the playground, Tennis courts and so much nature! Morning Classes are available daily from 9:00-11:15 Mondays - Fridays and Afternoon Classes at 12.15–2.30 Tuesdays and Thursdays September thru June.
It is a time for story and language development, music and movement activities, and other varied learning experiences.
Our programs all have a pretend and learn area devoted to developing a child’s sense of “make believe”.
Before & After Grade 1-6
Our before- and after-care programs go well beyond homework help. We support children in becoming the kindest, most capable, and most resilient version of themselves.
With regular outdoor time and planned indoor activities, our children experience a world of movement, dance and recreation.
Books allow children to enter a world of “make believe” and learn about new and exciting things.
Our programs use a research based curriculum that is individualized to every age, with planned activities that combine learning and fun to create happy, curious kids.
Julie has recently been promoted to Preschool Director after completing her Early Childhood Education Diploma and has been a part of the 1st Class Preschool team for 3 years. She began as a teacher in our New Brighton program and has brought her knowledge and passion for our programs to Heritage Pointe. She thrives on seeing children succeed and has a passion for contributing to their education.
Julie is also a mother of five children, 4 boys and a girl and has set her standards for childcare as that which she would want for her own children. Julie's love for children and her own continued development have led her to returning to school to complete her early childhood education designation. Her new, fresh approach is a welcomed addition to our Heritage Pointe team!
