Jardin des enfants ERSM

PRE-SCHOOL (3 YEAR OLDS)

Nursery school is often the first experience of our child outside the home. In some ways it is the bridge between home and school. The rhythm of its morning program is simpler than that of kindergarten. The atmosphere is reminiscent of home; gentle, warm, rather slow, whose intention is to give children the sense of living as a family. This is the first time they are part of a group: they learn to adjust to each other, to take turns and take their place in the circle (as small as it may be). It is a big step for small children.

It is also the moment when the transition between parallel play and social play takes place. This means learning to interact with another human being with kindness and generosity. The rhythm of the day begins indoors and ends outdoors. Everything is done in small doses in order for the children to integrate their experiences while having enough time to breathe in the day's activities. A healthy and organic snack is provided.

Please note - children must be toilet trained to attend Pre-school.

The program is taught in French.

When I switched Alexa from grade 3 in public school, where our nightly routine included angry, non-understood homework sessions of 1-2 hours, I was reassured to see the positive change in her. Within a few months, she was singing, reciting poems and loving her school experience. When asked why, she smiled and said, "Mommy, I guess this school opened my heart."

At ERSM, my child learns to be self sufficient: building a house to "protect herself", knitting to "clothe herself", making bread or apple sauce to "feed herself". These activities do not simply give her the impression of being self-reliant; by doing this with the other children, she learns the value of her own contribution within a group. She builds a place for herself within her own community.
