Welcome to Mahogany Scholars Preschool
Mahogany Scholars Preschool is south east Calgary’s premier child care facility for ages 1-6 years. Our program uses Play-Based Learning with a focus on real experiences, so that children can physically touch and explore what they are learning about. By providing time, space, and materials we enable students to lead the lessons, which help them to develop a love of learning in a supported and fun environment!
Together with families, the team at Mahogany Scholars Preschool will help you to secure the best and brightest future for your child.
As a full day program our Play-Based Learning curriculum runs throughout the day, and with our open door policy you can drop and pick your child at the times that work best for your family! Upon entering our secure facility you will drop your child off in one of our 6 classrooms, divided by age:
• Seeds 1&2: Ages 1-2 years
• Sprouts 1&2: Ages 2-3 years
• Saplings: Ages 3-4 years
• Mahogany: Ages 4-6 years
Have time to stay a little longer, or want to pop by? Come relax in the Family Grove and take a look on the camera to see what your child is up to! Are they enjoying our indoor gym? Perhaps they are having an adventure in our fenced, outdoor, play space? Maybe they are enjoying 1 of the 3 meals a day made by our in-house cook!
What is Play Based Learning?
“Play nourishes every aspect of children’s development-it forms the foundation of intellectual, social, physical, and emotional skills necessary for success in school and in life.” – Canadian Council on Learning
Play-Based Learning is the experience of learning through play. Play is essential to the whole rounded development of children. By implementing Play-Based Learning at Mahogany Scholars Preschool your child will achieve success by exploring, thinking, creating, and doing, all in a safe and comfortable environment. We provide all children with the ability to truly engage and interact with their own education, enabling them to extend and create connections between past, present and future experiences.
Play-Based Learning succeeds through the active participation of children, their family, and our educators, together.
Play-Based Learning at Mahogany Scholars Preschool
At Mahogany Scholars Preschool our teachers purposefully plan lessons by catering activities to the uniqueness of the students, making education personally relevant and instilling a love of learning in each child. In each classroom, you will find your child’s teachers actively participating in the learning process. Through Play-Based Learning, the curriculum at Mahogany Scholars Preschool is not limited by what we think your child should be learning about, but is created through the observed interests of yours, and every child, at Mahogany Scholars Preschool.
