18 months – 3 years, with Parent/Caregiver
This introductory program offers grown ups and child a chance to bond while exploring all kinds of activities, including play centers, story time, blocks, art, music and gym! The KVA Prep program is designed to prepare children for a separated class by encouraging independence while they play in a social environment. Transitioning between classrooms and activities will allow little ones to gain confidence and familiarity with a structured routine, allowing children to seamlessly graduate to the KVA Jr. program.

18 months – 30 months *
Our KVA Jr. program is a nurturing and enriching experience for young children. The KVA Jr. curriculum is individualized to meet the needs of each child, builds on their interests, and focuses on essential developmental skills. Each day will engage toddlers, build confidence, promote socialization, and prepare them for not only KVA Grad, but a lifetime of learning.
The KVA Jr. day includes a variety of play-based centres, as well as whole group activities, such as art, music & movement, gym, math and numeracy, language and pre literacy, as well as time for snacks. Our well trained and encouraging teachers will prepare and transition your child by promoting independence throughout the daily routine. But of course, every day will be an adventure - full of exploration, activity, and learning. (Teacher/Child Ratio 1:5)
30 months – 4 years*
The KVA Grad curriculum is designed to stimulate your child's natural curiosity. Children will learn through exploration as they participate in various play-based centres that focus on language development, scientific discovery, & mathematical concepts - all while enhancing their creativity and imagination!
This program enables your child to be independent. KVA Grads begin to learn classroom rules as they develop an understanding of what it means to respect others and take responsibility for themselves and their environment. (Teacher/Child Ratio 1:8)

The KVA After School program will complement a regular school day, by providing more opportunities for your child to learn, grow, and discover new skills. It’s a chance for children to realize their potential and explore possibilities.
Registered early childhood educators have created this play-based program that connects to learning that happens during a regular school day. Your child can look forward to a mix of exploration, guided and independent activities, quiet time, and gym play.
* These KVA programs will operate in accordance with the regulations set out in the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014.
Enrolling our daughter in the KVA program is one of the best decisions we've made as parents. The individual attention and care the teachers provide each child far surpasses what any other preschool program can provide, and our daughter absolutely loves it. Kidville will always have a special place in our hearts!
I was so thrilled to find Kidville Academy. Not only do they have the best facility in the city, their programming is unlike any other. My son is engaged, gaining confidence in every area, and — most importantly — so happy at KVA! Kidville Academy has created a classroom community based on respect, care and trust. And the lines of communication are always open — as a parent, I don't miss a thing.
