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.

Introducing, The 'Magical Granola Bar Monkeys'

Learning from the outdoor classroom at Dewson.





 Drawing and storytelling time.


 Digging, climbing and exploring nature at our wonderful community park, Dufferin Grove.







Taking a break on our walk to our home base. We love to stand on this corner and pretend we are standing on the riverbank of Garrison Creek that once flowed in our neighbourhood. We love closing our eyes and talking about what Toronto would have looked like at that time.
