John Sweeney Learning Stories
We love sharing all the learning that is taking place in our programs. Every program at our centre shares a new story each month, so be sure to check back often! You can also email and print each story to share with friends and family.
The preschoolers have displayed an interest in bugs during outside time during their walks and investigations in the nearby woods.

As the children watched the spider moving around on the piece of paper, they began to vocalize their observations.Read More...
John Sweeney Projects
Projects evolve based on the children's interests, where our educators act as co-learners. Projects are documented in three phases; generating ideas by making a plan, implementing the plan and reflecting on the learning.
