ABOUT US

Lil’ Saints Preschool is a licensed preschool, operated as a ministry of Saints Church. While it is not a requirement for Lil’ Saints Preschool Families to be Christians or attendees of Saints Church, we invite Preschool Families to take advantage of the wide variety of available Saints Church Programs and Facilities. The staff of Lil’ Saints Preschool are committed Christians with a passion for teaching preschool age children. We endeavor to provide an environment where children feel safe and successful, where they can develop age-appropriate cognitive and critical thinking skills while also fostering each child’s love of learning and creativity.

At Lil’ Saints Preschool:

  • There are NO mandatory fundraisers, parent duty days or toy cleaning requirements.

  • We offer small child to staff ratios.

  • We promote investigative, inquiry-based play in both self-directed and teacher lead activities.

  • We encourage children to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills by engaging in science and math activities.

  • We have access to a full-size gym with a variety of equipment for gross motor development.

  • We are an Alberta Children’s Services licensed program.

 

Note: Children must turn 3 years old on or before December 31st of this year to enroll in our 3 year old program. Likewise children must turn 4 by December 31st of this year to enroll in our 4 year old program. Due to our ratio requirements from Children’s services, children can not attend until they turn 3 years old. Payment is required to hold their spot until they are able to attend.

Activities

 

At Lil’ Saints Preschool we provide an environment where students engage in intentional, investigative play. Opportunity is provided for children to participate in both self-directed and teacher-led activities throughout class time. Lil’ Saints students participate in a variety of creative activities planned around specific themes that are enhanced by Christian concepts and values. Children are also given the opportunity for creative exploration using a variety of materials for open ended activities. 

Throughout class time children have opportunity to develop problem solving skills and social skills during free choice play activities. Teachers offer support as needed to help children find appropriate resolutions to conflict and encourage critical thinking skills to enhance play. 

PRESCHOOL CLASSES

Many students participate in a two year program as our 4 year old program builds from the curriculum in our three year old program. For example, our 3 year old program introduces the children to the different letters in the alphabet and their sounds, while our 4 year old program introduces them to phonics and pre-reading skills. We recommend taking advantage of both our programs as they work together to give your child the best start to their school career.
