For Ross Recreation Preschool there are two schools. St Johnís and The Garden School. Both take about 20 pupils per year. Play-based but they are beginning to do some teacher-lead pieces to bring on some focus on early education Ė alphabet learnings, early maths, seasons/time etc

They also link into the full Ross Rec program which includes art, language and sport after school classes. (My daughter just finished and we loved it and my son is just going)

Is your daughter now in K? How well do you think your daughter was prepared for grade school after a play based program? And if you chose to go private do you have any guidance on what schools carry that philosophy through their curriculum without being totally progressive? Thanks for sharing your experience!
