About Great Adventures

Based on the premise that children learn through play, Great Adventures offers young children opportunities for social, intellectual, physical, and emotional growth through a balance of both child-led and teacher-guided play. Participants have numerous opportunities to explore, create, discover, problem-solve and communicate to encourage appropriate skills and development.

Program uses themes to introduce and expose students to colors, shapes, numbers, and letters in a friendly and fun atmosphere. A balance of whole group and small group activities encourage academic and listening skills along with social interaction. Activities are designed to promote each child’s self-esteem and positive attitude toward learning, while striving to introduce independence and responsibility.

All children need to be toilet-trained to enroll/participate (except for Finally 3).

Price: R $1227/NR $1524

*Children must turn 3 by Dec. 31, 2024

Learning to master behaviors help children on the path to success. Sitting calmly in a group, taking turns, listening to instructions, following rules and routines, controlling impulsive behavior, and problem-solving are the focus. Children have countless opportunities to learn and grow in this class through play. Finally 3 gives children their first positive experience in a preschool classroom allowing them to be comfortable separating from parents on a regular basis. Parents/guardians designate a person to be called to come and change your child if needed.
Minimum enrollment is 6 for all classes.
