Preschool in Burlington & Oakville
To the parents of a young child, decisions regarding early care and education are not made lightly. At Parkview, it has been our mission to give parents the utmost confidence that when enrolled with us, their children are well taken care of, and given an auspicious beginning to a long and successful education. Through regular government inspections conducted by the Ministry of Education (EDU), our Halton preschool has met or exceeded industry standards and made a conscientious effort to employ the four government-outlined pillars of early education. These are well-being, belonging, expression and engagement. Program planning and activities at our Halton preschool are always made with these pillars in mind

Exciting Halton Preschool Activities
Students at The Village School are engaged with a host of different Halton preschool activities encompassing supporting development in the areas of: physical, communication, cognition, emotional and social. A parent may visit the school and see a group of engaged children constructing a castle out of sticks inside, only to then notice a different group enjoying active movement in the courtyard. Throughout the year, our Oakville preschool classrooms are visited by special guests to extend their learning including our music teacher Suzy Sunshine. Exposure to Halton preschool activities and learning provocations from every discipline allow a child’s strengths and interests to blossom at this early and pivotal stage of their education.
Learn More About Our Preschool Curriculum
For our preschool curriculum, Parkview uses the Reggio Emilia approach which originated half a century ago in Northern Italy. This philosophy specifies the four crucial roles a teacher must fulfill in order to administer an effective preschool curriculum.
As a co-constructor, they will actively engage with your child to nurture and assist them in problem solving. As a researcher, they will investigate the unique proclivities of your child. As a documenter, they will track the educational progress of their students and identify strengths and areas needing more attention. And finally, as an advocate, they will be active in their community and lobby for advancement in preschool learning. For more information on Reggio Emilia visit our preschool curriculum page.
