Will your child be ready for a full day of kindergarten in 2012?

Is a combination of learning and fun what you would like to give your pre-schooler as a flying start?

Then the 4R’s Education Centre (Soc.) Little R’s Pre-school program should fit the bill.

Little R’s is a new service offered by the local society. Starting in September and taught by qualified and experienced ECE teachers, Ann Forth and Celina Schaffrick, the program nurtures the social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth of each child in a safe and active learning environment.

Mornings will be filled with exciting activities and experiences designed to create a joy of expectation and discovery that should form the building blocks needed for life-long learning.

Spaces are available for mornings — 9 a.m. to noon Monday/Wednesday/Friday and/or 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday/Thursday.

A great addition to 4R’s (which has been in operation in the Comox Valley since 1989), the maximum class size of 10 children per session ensures individual attention, and remains true to the 4R’s mandate “to help students reach their true potential through providing positive and successful learning experiences.”

For more information regarding pricing and availability of pre-school or other services, call the 4R’s Education Centre (Soc.) at 250-338-4890 or e-mail four.rs@shaw.ca. Visit 4R’s on Facebook or  www.4rseducation.com or call to book a time to come in and see the pre-school in action at 581 McPhee Ave. in Courtenay.
