Participating in groups is a great way for children to develop skills while building lasting relationships with peers.
Little Learners is a Preschool group program designed to teach and encourage both social and school skills. Little Learners will expose children to a well-rounded, multi-disciplinary program and allow them to generalize their skills while also developing relationships within their peer group.
Little Learners is designed for children 5 years and under, depending on their skill level.
PRESCHOOL GROUP PROGRAM
Learning within a group allows children to develop three main life skills: working and learning in a group environment, regulating themselves within a social environment, and developing relationships with peers.
Little Learners teaches preschool-aged children skills for school readiness. These include:
- Social Skills (turn taking, sharing, eye gaze, joint attention, etc.)
- Play Skills (parallel play, imaginative play, etc.)
- School Routines (lining up, bathroom, snack, etc.)
- Academic Skills (
colours, shapes, letters, numbers, etc.)
- Fine and Gross Motor Skills (cutting, crafts, outdoor play, etc.)

This year, Connections will consist of three 12-week modules which run throughout the school year:
Fall Module: September 24—December 14, 2018
Winter Module: January 7—March 29, 2019
Spring Module: April 8—June 28, 2019
Modules are built around fun themes such as multi-media art, movement and fitness, sports, Nature Buddies, music, LEGO®, wacky science experiments, and many more.
If you would like to register your child for the Connections groups, please contact our offices. We accept registrations at all times and children can join groups at the beginning or half-way point of each module. Start dates may be discussed in greater detail with our staff.
Children new to Little Steps will need to complete intake paperwork and a short group placement screening before joining a Connections group to ensure they are being placed with the peer group that will allow them to be as successful as possible in reaching their goals.
If a child needs extra support in the group, Little Steps’ staff may contact the parent or guardian to discuss 1:1 assistance.
For more information, please contact the office by phone at 250-386-1171 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
