Roots and wings Preschool

All About Us

Roots and Wings Preschool is a learning and play environment located in the portable classroom at the Renfrew Community Association.  I maintain a small class size of 12 maximum so I can connect with the children. This allows me to provide activities and learning centres that meet the needs, interests and abilities of the children.  I am an experienced, passionate and enthusiastic educator. I look forward to guiding and supporting your children as they grow, explore, discover, learn, play & laugh.  It is an honour and pleasure to be a part of it.

Our Philosophy

Roots and Wings Preschool is dedicated to ensuring that our children have both roots and wings.  Roots serve many important purposes: stability and nourishment.  We offer a consistent routine, clear expectations and predictable consequences, in a safe environment. We are nurturing: kind words of encouragement, affection and appreciation. Our Preschool is a place where children can come to learn, play and belong, a place to put down roots.  Once children feel safe and secure, it is our job to help them grow wings, take flight, and go out into the world.  We help guide and teach children to have confidence, self esteem and responsibility.  Children need well-developed social-emotional skills to be successful in kindergarten, the playground, and in life. Having wings allows them to take chances, to try new things, and even sometimes make mistakes. Having roots will allow them to take those mistakes and use them to problem solve & grow.  At Roots and Wings Preschool, we will work hard and play hard to achieve this vision.



“Teaching children to count is not as important as teaching them what counts.”
