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.

CBC Kids at Dundas Square w/ Jason Collett & The Great Lake Swimmers

Last week, we met up with our friends at Trinity Playschool (The Wandering Hamsters) - -  (by the way we have named ourselves The Twirly Birds) - - for some games, arts & crafts and live music at Dundas Square. 

 We got to see CBC Kids TV's Mama Yama - - - a YAM lady! Some of us are familiar with her from television and were thrilled to see her in real life. She was one of the highlights of the day, even for those who hadn't known about her before.



We also played "name that instrument" with members of Toronto's own Great Lake Swimmers before having the pleasure of watching them perform their string heavy music.

We also enjoyed bobbing along to the rugged, gentlemanly tunes of Broken Social Scene's Jason Collett.
