Pre-Casa (Toddler) Program - 2-4 years.

A child can join the program in September of the year they turn 2 The Trillium Pre-Casa Program offers a warm, caring and dynamic environment. The goal is to prepare children for preschool education, the formation of:

  • Skills of independence, cooperation
  • Confidence
  • Mindfulness
  • Learning skills through research.

Casa Program - 4-6 years

The Trillium Casa (Kindergarten) program effectively combines Montessori methodology with a structured and traditional curriculum approach. In the earliest years, a structured classroom environment helps children begin to develop the independence they need to be successful in school. Children focus on building mindfulness in the classroom, listening to their teachers, classmates, and following instructions.

Young children work with the Montessori apparatus to stimulate the main areas of learning: practical life, sensing, mathematics and language. The Casa Language program is acoustically based. Very early on, children become aware of the variety of sounds in words, gradually developing the ability to separate and distinguish sounds. In later years, children develop sight-reading skills and begin to read simple text.

Early writing skills begin with the development of fine motor skills, especially "pincer grip". Students develop pencil skills through scribbling, coloring, and drawing. Once they have mastered the use of a pencil, students will learn how to write letters with an emphasis on direction. By the end of the Casa Program, most students are able to write several descriptive sentences on their own. The program also includes mathematics, French, natural and social sciences.

Elementary - 6-14 liters.

Trillium's Elementary program combines a rigorous and challenging academic component with a variety of extracurricular activities aimed at the overall development of the child. Students follow a structured schedule that includes many extracurricular activities, swimming lessons, ice skating, public library visits, leadership training, arts, ethics.

The Advanced Academic Program includes all subjects included in the Ontario curriculum. These include language, mathematics, French, natural sciences, social studies (history, geography for grades 7-8), music, physical education, computer technology, art.

  1. The language program builds a solid foundation of basic skills in spelling, phonetics, writing, grammar, reading comprehension and vocabulary building. In addition to teaching technical skills, literacy is encouraged through a rich literary environment: students read novels, magazines, write and recite poetry, Shakespearean and classical literature, write scripts, stories, prepare publications, individual and group presentations. Students compete in public speaking and poetry reciting competitions.
  2. The math program combines mastery of technical skills, mathematical vocabulary, and critical thinking skills. Students participate in nationwide mathematics competitions (including the annual EQAO test).

The course includes the study of French culture through literature, videos, projects, presentations and excursions.
