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.

Last Month In Review - Camping + AGO!

Camping photos! Static hair in the tent! We learned how to set up the tent and spent the day camping in Dufferin Grove Park!

We made a visit to the AGO to see Sean Martindale's exhibition. We learned about the history of street art, saw some examples of graffiti in Toronto and then made our own pictures and added them to a large collage wall of photos that many others have been adding to. We were asked questions, such as, "What would you do if you were mayor?" We thought really hard about what we want for our city and wrote our answers down and placed them on the wall.
