Little Marines Preschool is the first preschool of its kind lower mainland, which comes up with play-based learning and academic approach (Montessori). We combined with S.T.E.M and early coding concept learning in our everyday classroom. We create this new tri-aspects education. Within these three aspects, the several psychological and physical needs of children of different ages have been met.
A science-positive atmosphere is a fundamental component of children’s continued science education success. Little Marines is the FIRST and ONLY Preschool immersing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in BC. We use a combination of a playing-based and problem-solving learning approach to encourage children to explore the world and build up the game to solve developmental and real-world problems. This program actively engages children to explore and enjoy science and technology's fun experience at their early age.Read More
The core value of Montessori Philosophy is that it teaches a progressive curriculum by using child-directed learning, backed by observation and scientific research. It is based on hands-on learning, self-direction and collaborative activities. In Little Marines, a separated Montessori area is designed for children who show great interest in academic learning and are guided by a certified teacher.
Based on the Government of British Columbia’s Early Learning Framework, we design our programs that centres on four core aspects of education: Physical, Cognitive, Emotional, and Social Development. Children will learn the foundational skills and knowledge to get ready to transit to kindergarten.Read More
“Bilingual children are better able to focus their attention on relevant information and ignore distractions” – Hanen.org. Many kinds of research indicate the advantages of learning a second language in early childhood. Both Burnaby and Coquitlam school districts offer the Mandarin Language Arts Program, so we choose Mandarin as the second language for our preschoolers. Not only through the music, rhythm, flashcards to empower the listening and speaking skills, we also engage with the traditional festival events to educate the different cultures.
Our preschool provides 3200 interior square feet for 20 kids at the same time slots. A large indoor playground is guaranteed 30 minutes of physical playtime for children every time, no matter rain or shine.
All of the facilities are bright, spacious, and clean, with colourful learning areas. We follow a rigorous cleaning regimen using all-natural products that keep our preschool sanitary without harsh or irritating chemicals.
To secure our kids’ safety and health amid COVID 19, we offer a Kid-Friendly Disinfection Robot to sanitize our preschool surfaces, play stations, toys, and high-touch hard surfaces to keep children protected against germs and bacteria.
