Programmes

Children are never too young for learning opportunities at Little Bay Primary. Research has shown that the earlier a child is exposed to diversity and discovery, the better prepared they become for success during all phases of life. At Little Bay Primary and Infant, we encourage children to have fun as they foster social skills, participate in creative expression, question and understand concepts and develop perceptual and gross motor skills. Our preschool enrichment programs center on exposure, exploration, and discovery. We never push children into situations but provide a rich, caring environment where the learning processes can blossom at a very young age. This fun, creative approach gives kids the confidence to try new things and instills a lifelong love of learning.

Our Programmes Include:

  • Virtual classes
  • Free school bus pick up and drop off
  • Free home delivery of school work for those without internet
  • Pull out sessions for children who need extra help
  • Reading classes for all children
  • Edufocal classes for all grade four to six
  • Success maker programme for all students
  • Leadership development classes for student leaders
  • Computer classes for all students
