It is the goal of our Pre-Kindergarten Program to foster the necessary growth and development that will enable a child to deal competently with his or her environment and future learning experiences. As a program, we recognize that this is a reciprocal process involving both home and school. Families are viewed as an integral part of the education process and are invited to be involved in all aspects of their child's educational planning.
Children in the Pre-Kindergarten Program are seen as young children first and children with special needs second. As much as possible, teaching occurs in the context of play situations and learning centres. We also recognize the need for developmentally appropriate learning and when necessary, individual instruction. Mayfield's Pre-Kindergarten Program provides a wide range of experiences that capitalize on a child's strengths.
At Mayfield School, we have a multi-disciplinary team that work seamlessly together to create the best learning environment for our students. This team consists of a Teacher, Educational Assistants, Speech Language Pathologist, Speech Language Pathologist Assistant, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Therapy Assistant. Every classroom in pre-kindergarten has a collection of staff that teach, assist, and educate through different programming, including one on one with students that require therapy.
