Overview

Your preschooler is steadily growing and developing as they explore their creativity, capabilities and personality.

At Nottinghill our goal is to meet every child’s individual needs by being sensitive to each child’s personality and growth development. Children have the opportunity to learn through play with a variety of play areas to support learning. Our goal is for your child to develop their self-esteem and confidence to equip them for their future education.

We offer 2 programs for 3-year-olds: 3AM and 3PM (Full-time | Part-time). Classes run from September to June.

  • All activities and learning are structured around weekly themes
  • Teaching children essential skills through educational circles, daily calendar review and creative activities
  • Letters and number recognition through hands-on learning tools
  • Teaching literacy through Jolly Phonics, a fun and child centered approach to teaching literacy through phonics; with actions for each of the letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children
  • Explore gross and fine motor skills through creative activities, extra-curriculars and outdoor play

We value communication between Nottinghill staff and parents and have put in place a number of communication channels:

E-mail | Newsletter | Monthly Calendars | Website | Social Media | Remind Mobile Application

Nottinghill enhances its programs by offering outside programming such as multi-sport, yoga, music and field trips.

Extracurriculars vary year-on-year and will be confirmed at the start of the school year.
