A Day at Rising Scholars Preschool

  • A Teacher greets child as they enter the classroom. Daily variety and genres of music will be playing until class begins. Children choose a learning material or book until we gather for circle time.
  • Class begins with circle time.  A daily gathering that also occurs at the end of the day as well as at transition times (after nature walk or yoga).
  • Children then work with Montessori Materials for a large part of the class. Here, Teachers make presentations of the materials to individual children and/or small groups.  Spontaneous discussions or presentations may take place. Teachers are always available to answer questions, assist and record progress.
  • Children have up to 15 minutes to have their snacks.  Snacks are provided by parents. 


Other Considerations

  • We also incorporate French, Art, Crafts, Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness and Nature walks (weather permitting) on a daily/weekly basis.
  • We have a Winter and Spring concert.
  • Progress reports are given twice a year
  • Field trips (on and off Preschool premises) occur a few times a semester and may include:
    • John Janzen Nature Centre
    • Edmonton Valley Zoo
    • John Walter Museum
    • Fort Edmonton Park
    • Muttart Conservatory
    • Fire Station Tour
    • Dental Hygienists
    • Senior’s living facilities
    • Recreation center
    • Edmonton Public Library
    • Telus World of Science
    • Police station
  • Cultural celebrations are acknowledged and celebrated throughout the year.
  • A Peace Table (or Place): A designated place where children can go to peacefully resolve conflict and work out their differences.
  • Inside voice and walking feet: Children usually need a lesson on finding and using their quiet voice and walking feet in the classroom. This ensures a respectful and safe working environment for everyone.
