Roots and Wings Preschool is a learning and play environment located in the lower level of the Renfrew United Church. We maintain a small class size of maximum 12 so we can connect with the children. This allows us to provide activities and learning centres that meet the needs, interests and abilities of the children. We are experienced, passionate and enthusiastic about early learning. We look forward to guiding and supporting your children as they grow, explore, discover, learn, play & laugh. It is an honor and pleasure to be a part of it.
Hello! I am Melanie
The owner and teacher for Roots and Wings Preschool. I have been in the early learning field since 1992. Roots and Wings has been part of Renfrew since 2013. I graduated from Mount Royal College/University and continued my education there with my Child and Youth Mental Health Certificate and Sign Language (ASL). I am an active advocate in our field and love what I do! I have been with my husband John since 1994 and we have 2 beautiful girls, Hannah and Jessica. I feel very blessed to do what I love, and I truly believe it shows in everything I do. Thank you for being part of my days! It is an honour and privilege.
For those Preschool students who will be graduating to Kindergarten, we will support, observe, and document their Kindergarten readiness skills. Our goal is to make the transition to Kindergarten the most successful one it can be. The focus is on the development of skills, confidence, and curiosity. We want children to become eager, capable learners who love school.
