Pre-Primary & Primary

At East Coast Varsity, we believe a partnership between physically active lifestyles and lifelong learning is vital for one to achieve their best selves. 

Kinaesthetic learners are engaged with the environment around them; movement energizes the body, stimulates the brain and allows students to comprehend their curriculum in a manner that is beyond the education they would receive only in the classroom.

Operating to the province of Nova Scotia’s education standards, we engage our student leaders by providing a learning environment, in and out of the classroom, that is academically and socially stimulating and conducive for all learners. ECV classrooms and teaching address not only academic, conceptual based learning, but also strongly focus on the development of social education, and key learning processes and skills, such as reading, writing, and use of IT integration

As parents of students in the Pre-primary and Primary programs we believe that we are building the ultimate experience for three, four and five year olds. Day care hours, meet a daily schedule that includes age appropriate learning from certified teachers, daily sports including skating, dance, soccer all from high level coaches, unstructured play outdoors on the playground and in the woods as well as a focus on social skills, friendship and FUN!
