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 are so happy to be back! Fall is upon us and 'The Lion Wolves' are ready to have fun and take care of their fellow pack members. They decided that 'lions' were a good name since we all want to stay together as a pack, have fun, be loyal and brave friends this year. Such wonderful ideas! What a wonderful way to start the year!


 On our walk home, we sit on the corner and close our eyes trying to pretend what it would have been like with the Garrison Creek flowing beside us.
 We also pass by the YMCA on our walk and have taken to stopping in front for a little song and dance!

 Having a look at the chickens that live on Lisgar!
