WE STRIVE TO SEE THE WORLD FROM A KIDS-EYE-VIEW
Bellwoods Playschool uses a child-centred, socially conscious pedagogy to engage young children in social and artistic thought and action. Using what the city has to offer, we empower our students with the knowledge to be socially and environmentally responsible citizens while they develop into explorers of their urban landscape.

WE THINK OF THE CITY AS OUR CLASSROOM
A valuable aspect of the Bellwoods Playschool program is to empower children as navigators of their city. We journey on regular excursions, by foot and by public transportation, to art galleries, museums and cultural events, as well as markets, parks and city landmarks.

WE KNOW ITS TAKES A VILLAGE

Our Playschool runs on a model that links a range of artists together to engage and inspire children. We like to bring in different perspectives and actively pursue a diverse teaching staff. As such, professional educators and artists trade chalkboards for personal anecdotes and textbooks for real life experiences. Together, they create an atmosphere that is at once intellectually stimulating and deeply personalized.

Back to School !

We have a new group of Kindergartens and are super excited about this coming year. Our wonderful art teacher, Leah, has left us and now has her own group, Trinity Playschool. We will be sharing ideas, going on some field trips and playing sports in the park together. DOUBLE THE FUN!!

We welcome Lorna to our team, a lovely actress who will be doing drama, dance, movement and other fun activities with us. We just filled our new space with jars of beads, paints, brushes, crayons, pastels, string and other colourful and exciting things.

At the moment, Bellwoods Playschool is waiting to hear back from Artscape about having permanent space in the Artscape Shaw Street building. We applied for space a few months ago and will find out soon about whether we can have a home there or not. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
