WE STRIVE TO SEE THE WORLD FROM A KIDS-EYE-VIEW
Bellwoods Playschool uses a child-centred, socially conscious pedagogy to engage young children in social and artistic thought and action. Using what the city has to offer, we empower our students with the knowledge to be socially and environmentally responsible citizens while they develop into explorers of their urban landscape.

WE THINK OF THE CITY AS OUR CLASSROOM
A valuable aspect of the Bellwoods Playschool program is to empower children as navigators of their city. We journey on regular excursions, by foot and by public transportation, to art galleries, museums and cultural events, as well as markets, parks and city landmarks.

WE KNOW ITS TAKES A VILLAGE

Our Playschool runs on a model that links a range of artists together to engage and inspire children. We like to bring in different perspectives and actively pursue a diverse teaching staff. As such, professional educators and artists trade chalkboards for personal anecdotes and textbooks for real life experiences. Together, they create an atmosphere that is at once intellectually stimulating and deeply personalized.

These Days....


Growing at the Greenhouse!








Our tulips finally bloomed! Out of the 40 bulbs we planted only 6 turned into beautiful flowers! I guess the squirrels had quite a snack of the remaining 34. 

 Our silkscreening workshop with the wonderful Laura Christinzo and her sis, Sara. Thanks for the fun times!!


















 Springtime walks in the neighbourhood

 Digging, Digging and more digging.

 Here are some photos the kids took while in High Park enjoying the cherry trees.
