Children learn about farming at Discovery Place McKee Preschool

Let your child’s natural curiosity and imagination help guide their education. At Discovery Place McKee Preschool, students are encouraged to learn in ways that make sense to kids — through immersive, hands-on activities. Taught by qualified teachers and teacher’s assistants, children are given a safe and supportive environment to learn about the world around them. Teachers also help students develop beneficial mental and emotional skills.

Weekly and monthly curriculum is designed by teachers based on the interests of the children in their classroom. Is your child intrigued with all things dinosaurs? Fantastic! Let’s learn more. Does your child get giddy over dump trucks and excavators? Awesome, let’s find out more about construction equipment! Is your child fascinated with all things bubbling and fizzing? Great! Let’s discover more about how science works.

Diversity is also recognized and celebrated at Discovery Place McKee Preschool. Children are encouraged to become educated about all parts of the world through celebrating cultural traditions and holidays. Families are even encouraged to share their own cultural celebrations with the class. With an open door policy, teachers love having parents volunteer in the classroom, but of course, fundraising and parent duty days are not required.

Additionally, programming often includes field trips to get students out of the classroom and into the real world. Recent field trips have included the John Janzen Nature Center and the Edmonton Valley Zoo.
