James Bay Community Preschool operates a 10 month preschool program for children aged 3-5. Our ECE and ECEA certified staff provide a play based program that is engaging, educational, and fun. Preschool staff plan and facilitate learning opportunities based on the interests and experiences of the children using an Emergent Curriculum approach. Our outdoor spaces and easy access to local parks and beaches give children ample opportunity to engage with our natural environment. Please note, children must be 3 or older and toilet trained on their first day of Preschool.
