A Day in the Life at Magic Circle Preschool
Our educators are all bilingual, and speak both English (with explanations in French) and French (with explanations in English) to ensure children learn both languages. Both French and English are spoken interchangeably throughout the day.
Our days are also filled with songs. We feel that the regular use of songs ease transitions from one activity to another, and reinforce a sense of routine. We sing in both English and French. Your child will very likely teach you our special Magic Circle songs!

Free Playtime in our 8 play-to-learn stations
As detailed on the page about why the Magic Circle way is heavily based on play, we take our fun playtime very seriously! Our approach is backed by science and is a powerful way to encourage a love of learning. Did you know that playing is so important for children that it is a child's right as per the United Nations?
The classroom is separated into 8 Play-to-Learn stations and shown below. Each day, the children have multiple blocks of time during which they have full autonomy to select what they'd like to explore and receive all the help they need to make the most of their playtime. They are free to make their own choices of what they want to do!
