Pre-Kindy

Our Pre-Kindy program is an excellent introduction to school - and a whole lot of fun!

Pre-Kindy students quickly become part of our school family, and benefit from being involved in whole school routines such as Chapel services, gardening, recess and lunch time play.

Students experience a variety of open-ended and structured activities, created to be flexible enough to cater for individual needs while helping them to adjust comfortably to the school environment. We appreciate that growth and learning happen differently for everyone, and that this stepping-stone to school is an important time of transition for families.

We foster an encouraging atmosphere, a peaceful pace, and calm spaces, so that growth is neither hindered nor hurried. Our holistic approach aims to offer students a learning journey that is positive, memorable, and prepares them for success in Kindergarten.

Our thoughtfully and expertly designed program includes: 

  • A strong Christian values program.
  • Weekly Chapel programs with the whole school.
  • Participation in our weekly Garden Time program.
  • Involvement in sports program.
  • Play-based approach to initial reading, writing and maths skills.
  • A variety of learning activities to strengthen gross and fine motor skills, to foster
    imaginative play, to allow for creative expression, and to encourage a love of learning.
  • Gentle practice of school routines to develop responsibility and independence at school.

Biblical Studies 
At Toronto Adventist School students participate in Biblical Studies lessons.

The primary purpose of the School’s Bible Curriculum is for students to have a personal relationship with God and to respond to His invitation to live out of the overflow of this relationship — to understand the truths of the Bible, respond to Christ’s invitation to live in a lifelong vibrant relationship with Him, and be passionate about the salvation of others.

Our Bible curriculum is intentional about using the classroom context to help build this meaningful, lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ, using the Bible as a source of Truth. To this end, our Bible curriculum explores big-picture Biblical concepts with the goal of making a difference of eternity.

Nature-based Program
Toronto Adventist School is located in a beautiful bushland setting with a large garden space and outdoor learning areas. We believe that spending time in nature optimises growth and development – so maximising time outside is of utmost importance in our daily routines. Our environment offers endless learning and teaching opportunities.

Students participate in Garden Time lessons and these may involve planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, preparing market garden orders, and learning about animals that fulfil an important role in a garden setting such as worms and chickens.

In addition to Garden Time, students engage in nature-based lessons covering other areas of the curriculum. Maths lessons may involve counting activities in the outdoors. The world truly is our classroom!
