Nature Preschool

Wise Owl Nature Preschool enhances the lives of children, their families, and the community by providing a safe, caring and supportive environment for young children to learn and grow. Some of the many amazing learning tools we have in the classroom include a dress-up wardrobe, puppet stage, various art areas, water table, builder kits, light table, puzzles, games and a large wooden kitchen with a picnic table. Students get outside every day to adventure in the forest, the playground, the field, our inside playing games in the full gymnasium.


Wise Owl is happy to confirm this to be a continuation of service for Lions Bay Playschool in every way and will be open on September 1, 2016.

At Wise Owl Nature Preschool, we believe in the saying that ‘Play is children’s work’. As an Emilia Reggio inspired program, it is a place where children are nurtured, inspired and made to feel secure. Through a play-based curriculum, we strive to help children reach their full potential. We embrace many different development theories so that children have exposure to resources and learning styles that encourage greater knowledge. Science, math, and literacy are integrated into the program in a hands-on, age-appropriate manner. Arts are practiced to inspire self-expression and used as a language for learning. Physical activity and exposure to outdoors are an integral part of this school. We endeavor to promote children’s innate capacity for compassion and kindness through building relationships and teaching problem-solving skills. Creativity and critical thinking are considered foundations for the future of the children.
