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.

A Day In The Life of a Busy Babe

 Playing dress-up at the Drop-In Centre.

 Stopping in to check out the MOCCA. Only half of us were brave enough to check out the exhibit that required most of the lights to be off. Lucky our coop student was with us today. We were all pretty excited by the ice fishing hut installation, mostly because we all thought it was a rocket ship. 

 It was our first time checking out the statues outside of the MOCCA together.

We ended our day at the National Film Board, where we learned to log in and practice making our film selections. We watched some films on food and farming, including an episode from a claymation series called Wapos Bay. We enjoyed our free choice time and were highly entertained by The Cat Came Back.
