KINDERGARTEN TO GRADE 3
Kindergarten to Grade 3
We welcome you to our new home in the multipurpose room of Ecole Lord Tennyson.
We’ve welcomed a lot of young friends over the years and we know that children learn through play. At TOSS we engage children in activities that are not only fun, but help them develop their gross & fine motor, cognitive and social skills. We use our mixed age grouping at TOSS to foster a sense of leadership in the older children and a sense of belonging in the younger ones.

Friday Draw Day
TOSS can get pretty messy and we like to acknowledge our hard-working cleaners! Every day we put the names of our cleaners into a jar and each Friday we pick three names to win a prize!
We have a monthly birthday snack to celebrate all the children who have a birthday in that month. The birthday kids get to be servers, too!
Check your calendar to see when and where the sign up for these outings will be posted Children are welcome to sign themselves up for the outing, but we MUST have a parent signature as well, as these activities take place off-site.
Occasionally we will take the children on nature walks within the neighbourhood. The group will leave as soon as the children arrive at TOSS and they will be back for 4:00 snack. The walks will be announced on the monthly calendar and a sign up will be posted. Children are welcome to sign themselves and parents will be asked to sign as well.
