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.

The Wolfies are SERIOUS dancers! We visited the Canadian Opera Company for Bboyizm : The History of Breakdancing. The kids learned about the history of street dancing and learned fancy footwork from Soultrain to breakdancing moves and battling. Lots of fun learning about soul music and hip hop! Jack even volunteered to for the dance off at the concert...we all cheered on as he did the worm


We were so inspired by the performance we decided to practice our own moves...because we've been talking about film and video this month, we each took turns filming eachother dancing. hope you like it!
