Our Preschool Division (The Cocoon) is for children aged 1-3 years old upon entry
At ABC we strive to provide a warm, inviting and home-like environment to help our youngest learners feel safe, secure and ready to explore.
Our teachers are sensitive, intuitive and responsive to the children’s needs and help facilitate positive social interactions, providing stimulating expressive art activities, sensory circle times, outdoor play, cozy story times, and lots and lots of fun and hugs. Parents may join their children for the first few sessions to help them settle in or we will formulate a drop-off plan with you to best support your child and meet your needs.

The transition into a terrific two year old is a unique time in a child’s development. Growing independence and an ‘I can do it myself’ attitude combines with a sense of fun, enormous energy and powerful feelings! Our 2 year old teachers are masters at integrating just the right amount of support to encourage this burning independence whilst keeping children feeling supported whilst they participate in a wider social circle. The curriculum focuses on active play to ‘wiggle out their giggles’, hands on learning and discovery and songs, stories and circle times.
