Rise and Shine Preschool is a Christian preschool located in the North West community of Ranchlands in Calgary.
We are a licensed Preschool by Alberta Childcare Licensing, which means we follow all Safety, Fire, and Health requirements set out by the government.
We approach schooling from a Christian perspective where every child and family is treasured, respected, and valued. When children feel valued, safe, and secure, they will have the courage and confidence to explore the environment and learning centres around them. We include prayer, the Christmas story, the Easter story, and other stories from the Christian faith throughout our class.
Each day includes both teacher led and student led times. Our teacher led experiences include circle time where we read stories, engage in music and movement, learn about others, and talk about our current theme together.
Child led times are a central part of our preschool class as children direct their own learning through play and exploration. As children joyfully engage and interact with the environment, all developmental areas - social, emotional, intellectual, and physical - are met through creativity and discovery.
Rise and Shine Preschool approaches learning from a holistic approach and recognize that learning is not limited to ABC's and 123's. Our qualified staff thoughtfully consider how to nurture development in all areas according to the needs, interests, and abilities of each child. Our learning environment is carefully created to support growth in social, emotional, physical, and intellectual areas.
