A Positive Introduction to Sports!

Little Kickers  Oakville soccer class comes to Dearcroft!

  The Toddler and Prima Casa Classes have  looked forward to  gym time these last couple of weeks! They seemed to really enjoy their time with coach Larry  who owns the franchise for  Oakville and Southwest Mississauga. Coach  Larry tailored each class to the  specific age groups and was able to engage the children in such a fun, imaginative way.

They warmed up by doing some stretches before they played games with the soccer balls and nets.

 

During their 30 minute sessions in gym the  children  were introduced to the basics of soccer (dribbling, striking, goal scoring etc.) in a play-oriented yet structured format, using child-friendly but realistic soccer equipment.

Each child was given the opportunity to work within their ability level but taught in a group environment.

At little Kickers:

We give your children a positive introduction to sport by teaching high quality soccer skills in a friendly, pressure-free environment.

There are four different classes tailored specifically to the needs of children between 18 months and seven years of age.

Information Session “Next Level” Night Follow-up

 

 Thank you to all  parents who were able  to  join us on Thursday, November 2nd 2017 for our “Next Level Night” event.

We really enjoyed having  you and your child in our classes.

   

Parents who attended had a chance  to see the  students in action in the  classrooms and were able  to see the students’ work and learn more about the each program curriculum, ranging from Toddlers (18 months)  to Junior High (13 years).

It was such a fun and  informative night!  Our students were eager to show their parents some of the wonderful Montessori materials that they enjoy  working  with on a daily basis.

Parents also had a chance to  hear about what makes each and every one of our classrooms such a great place, and how our programs differ from a traditional classroom approach.

 We really enjoyed seeing all of our Dearcroft families  attend this event.

Sincerely the Dearcroft Montessori Staff
