Our Routine starts with a Story Time followed by a Greeting and Message Time. The rest of the day is divided up into Small Group Time, Large Group Time, Song Book Time, Plan- Do- Review Time, Snack Times, Outdoor Playtime, Indoor Playtime and Quiet Activities Time.
It creates a structure to the day and helps children learn through a combination of planned activities, free play, self choices and first hand experiences.
The routine encourages children to socialize with others and experience small groups of children as well as exploring and investigating toys and activities alone or with a supportive staff member.
At B.smart we encourage children to make their own choices which helps to develop confidence and independence.
The children are introduced to both French and English through creative and playful activities.
Our children participate in regular mindfulness sessions.
The purpose of teaching mindfulness to our children is to give them skills to develop their awareness of their inner and outer experiences, to understand how emotions manifest in their bodies and to recognize when their attention has wandered and to provide tools for control.
Mindfulness can help children improve their abilities to pay attention, to calm down when they are upset and to make better decisions. In short, it helps with emotional regulation and cognitive focus.
