Questions:
What is Strength-Based Teaching?
A method which seeks to develop a child’s strengths and capabilities by creating relevant and meaningful experiences, with a strong emphasis on positive reinforcement.

Why start with Free Play?
Let’s face it, mornings can be rushed. Not every child will arrive on time every day, and that’s okay. Free play as a first activity allows children to explore, to follow their curiosity, to engage with others and to practice social skills. Shy children have a chance to come out of their shells, and outgoing children have a chance to greet friends. Scheduling a chunk of free play first prevents on-time children from having to wait for latecomers, even as it allows those who occasionally arrive late not to miss out on valuable learning time.

Testimonials

We were looking for a west Edmonton preschool when we discovered Rio Terrace. I can’t express how happy we are with the school, the teachers and the overall experience. My son loves going to school and is always excited to tell us about his day. Being able to spend the day in class with him on his “special day” was likely more of a treat for me than it was for him. First class experience all around!
