The Our Kids review of Little Feet Little Faces

our takeParents are perhaps first drawn to Little Feet Little Faces through the school’s reputation for quality of care. That said, the academic program is what the school’s reputation is truly based upon. Care is a baseline at this level (or should be), and while we don’t often concentrate on academics as much as we would for a high school program, we should. Preschool is a stepping stone to everything beyond, and a strong entry into the primary grades is, rightly, a priority at LFLF. The program is small, allowing for a very personal, intimate feel, one that will grow a children’s social and academic esteem. The classroom appointments are also a plus, and while the school has moved between locations over its life, it has been in operation approaching 50 years. That level of experience is evident in the programs offered.



Principal's Message

Ingrid, Director

Hello and welcome! At Little Feet Little Faces your child is not just another face in the classroom. They are part of our team where every staff member knows their name and has taken the time to personally bond with your child and ensure a secure and trusting attachment has been forged. As a result of this your child comes to preschool happy and excited every day as they know they are safe and the staff love them. Our 3 year plan ensures that your child will receive a solid and comprehensive foundation of emergent and early literacy and mathematical concepts and skills allowing them to transition easily into some of Toronto’s most elite private elementary schools.


Academics


Preschool/K Curriculum Academic

  • Play-based
  • Montessori
  • Waldorf
  • Reggio Emilia
  • Academic

Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

If you want to learn more about preschool education, check out our comprehensive guide. You can also read our in-depth answers to important preschool questions: What is preschool? What are the main preschool programs? What are the main pros and cons of preschool? What do children learn in preschool? How much does preschool cost?  What makes for a great preschool?

What Little Feet Little Faces says: Our Preschool engages children by blending the Academics (Language, Numeracy, Science, French) with the Artistic worlds (Dance, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts) while still including a play-based environment. Children learn in different ways and LFLF recognizes this diversity by implementing a curriculum that supports every learner. Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences recognizes that children's thinking and learning skills vary from child to child and many students do not process information effectively when presented in traditional ways. We allow children to learn and access information in the way that best suits them while having a great time playing at their Preschool!


Curriculum Pace Student-paced

  • Standard-enriched
  • Accelerated
  • Student-paced

The main curriculum pace is non-standardized and is HIGHLY responsive to the pacing of individual students, (via differentiated instruction, differentiated assessment, etc). In theory, some students outpace the default/normalized curriculum, while others spend periods "behind schedule" if they need the extra time.

Flexible pacing:

Flexible pacing style = offered
Subject-streaming (tracking)
Multi-age classrooms as standard
Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
Regular guided independent study opportunities
Differentiated assessment

Academic Culture Supportive

  • Rigorous
  • Supportive

A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

Stories & Testimonials

News

Thank you!

We arrived in Toronto a few months ago and wanted to look for a very good summer camp and future preschool for our little prince. Our son was only at the school for 2 months and we loved the experience! The care and attention of his teachers Ms Vanessa and Ms Aneika, were amazing and turned our son's crying to a big smile at the end of the day. We are returning to Brazil with the peace of mind that our son will be happily returning to Little Feet Little Faces in the year 2012. ...



Thanks for the memories of a lifetime!

I had the pleasure of being my daughter's primary caregiver until she was a little over 3years old. So you can imagine how concerned I was to find a happy, healthy, fun, and safe environment for her to initiate her first steps into socialising her among other peers her age. Little Feet Little Faces was everything I was looking for and was such a pleasant surprise for both myself and my child. She was always eager to go and always coming home singing or twirling about. For my first encounter with a school establishment, I was quickly comfortable with the program and the teachers. The program was very diverse and included both traditional learning and exposing the children to different forms of dance and music, which was perfect for her personality. I would recommend this school to any parent. It was a wonderful experience that both myself and my daughter will remember for a lifetime. ...
