The Silver Lake Integrated Preschool at Kingston Elementary School has been helping the children of Kingston, Plympton, and Halifax get off to a great start since 1989. Our program is designed to provide opportunities for children with and without special needs to develop cognitively, socially, and emotionally to their own personal best. Each of our classrooms is language-based. Children are provided with opportunities throughout the day to develop language and literacy skills as well as social inquiry skills.
It is the purpose of the preschool to help children gain a better understanding of themselves and those around them. They are encouraged to value themselves as unique individuals and to appreciate differences in others. It is also the purpose of the program to develop a positive attitude toward school and learning. To accomplish these goals, the preschool staff will facilitate, support, guide, encourage and instruct each child to ensure that every child strives for the best that he or she is capable of achieving. Our learning environments are child-centered. The day to day activities are language and play based. Our curriculum is designed to be developmentally appropriate as well as educationally challenging for learners of all levels.
