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 beautiful sights of fall!



 

 Vegetables from below ground....
 And above ground!
 At the Farmer's Market we learned that it was a bad year for local apple trees. An early bloom and then an early frost left the apple trees without a lot of fruit to share with the farmers and the community. We also learned a lot about maple trees and how sap is extracted from the tree and then made into syrup! Thanks to our friendly friend at the market for the wonderful knowledge and the tasty maple leaf candies!! We love the farmers market!

 Can you spot the purple pepper?
