Sundance School

  • Sundance school creates a safe environment that promotes a sense of security, trust and acceptance, children are able to grow socially, emotionally and academically.
  • We celebrate childhood at Sundance Pre-School and strive to promote early childhood activities that will foster a true love of learning and prepare our students for success when they enter kindergarten.
  • The curriculum is a creative one, based on a hands-on approach.
  • Each child will be encouraged to make choices and become self-directed.
  • We use a thematic teaching technique, strongly supported by exceptional literature.
  • The children will take part in writing and illustrating of classroom books that will be shared by all families.
  • They will engage in many offerings: blocks, dramatic play, art, dance, housekeeping, music, creative movement and the development of pre-reading, writing, math and science skills.
  • We welcome parent volunteers in our school. Helping will assist us in making our on-going field trips and special activities successful.
