Celebrating 30 years!
Creative Edge School of Arts has been running Creative Edge Preschool here in Abbotsford since 1991.
Registration for 2020/2021 Preschool is still open for classes with space.
You can browse classes and register online for our current session here
Registration for Fall 2021 opens March 8th online at 12pm.
Take a look at the video below to see our preschool in action!
The preschool program at Creative Edge provides many areas to experience and learn from.
Our "fine arts curriculum" includes quite a comprehensive variety of well planned activities including: arts & crafts, singing, dance, music & movement. There are also educational activities which include:
Counting (in English and French), printing, colors, shapes and sign language!
Free play in the main classroom and big toy room encourages social interaction through games, puzzles, building toys, dress up and other creative play.
Our wide variety of fine arts activities allows us to teach the preschoolers to follow directions in a fun way.
Class activities will be centered around monthly themes and Creative Edge preschool students will also be invited to be part of a large stage production in June at the Abbotsford Arts Centre (adapted during pandemic).
Creative Edge places a great deal of importance on providing for each parent, the confidence that their child is in a safe and caring environment.
This is why we have one way mirrors installed in the classrooms.
During the Covid-19 pandemic: Class sizes are limited to 14, made up of two completely separate cohorts of a maximum of 7 students each. Parent viewing will be as needed or by appointment only. Staff and teachers are wearing masks at all times. Snacks are not served during the pandemic. Outdoor physical activity is prioritized over indoor gym time. Extensive additional sanitation measures are in place for all toys, supplies and surfaces.
Preschool Class Routine
Here is what a typical class routine at Creative Edge would include:
* free play and socialization
* group games
* circle time with preschool curriculum
* visual arts and fine motor skills development
* snack time (not serving snack during pandemic)
* gym time or outdoor play with gross motor skills development
* music activities
* dancing games
Preschool Field Trips
We will go on 2 – 3 field trips each year - like a visit to the pumpkin patch in October. Parents are required to join us on these events or have an alternate person participate with your child. More information will be provided as we approach the field trip dates. We may ask for a consent form to be signed by the parent.
