Go-Go Preschool is a revolutionary, fun, and educational preschool program for children 3 and 4 years of age. Launching September 2016, the Go-Go Preschool program is the fourth division of Go-Go Group Inc., a multidimensional organization which also includes recreational gymnastics programs (Go-Go Gymnastics), after school programs (Go-Go After School), and special event entertainment services (Go-Go Events) for children.
Go-Go Preschool believes that learning should be flexible and fun! As such, our philosophy is to engage children in a program that values and promotes your child’s unique interests, ideas and identity while enriching their experiences through stimulating environments, community engagement, physical activity and deep relationships.
Our preschool objectives include:
- Cultivating your child’s interests in a supportive, safe and invigorating environment.
- Encouraging independence, individuality and creativity.
- Providing growth opportunities through exploration and discovery.
- Ensuring that your child is treated with respect and understanding.
- Promoting a sense of self-worth and self-esteem in each child.
The Go-Go Preschool program focuses on five main pillars:
- Early Reading and Writing
- Hands-on Experiments
- Problem Solving
- Physical Literacy
- Arts and Culture: Music, Poetry, Dance
At Go-Go Preschool, we design our activities around the interests and needs of your child. To keep things new and exciting, we are continually expanding our topics. Go-Go Preschool’s unique program offers guest speakers & field trips to encourage community engagement, an environment to foster relationship building, exciting bouncy castle carnival days and special events!
Please note that children who attend Go-Go Preschool must be toilet trained before they begin classes as our centres are not equipped with diapering facilities. We understand that accidents will happen occasionally, and we will guide your child through proper clean up so that they are comfortable and clean. An extra set of clothes can be kept in your child’s backpack.
Go-Go’s trained and engaging educators utilize our unique learning environment to guide your preschooler in experiencing:
