The early years of a child's life only happen once in a lifetime. We believe that it is important to make every moment count. The first six years are the stepping-stones to what can be a life full of happiness, love and health.
Our program is specially designed to provide children with opportunities to foster the personal development and well-being of each child. We strive to help each child create healthy relationships and become a responsible citizen in society.
The difference our centre makes can be seen in the face of every child who steps through the door-a happy, confident, intelligent and independent child that remains curious throughout life and approaches every experience with the willingness to take on a new challenge and learn.
Our infant program in a wonderful environment that introduces young children to childcare. Our nurturing caregivers develop trusting relationships with each child and family to ensure a comfortable transition into the daycare centre. During the day, the infants will engage in many activities such as art, circle time, story time, music and outdoor time.
Our Toddler childcare program offers a more structured group environment with a schedule that includes plenty of stimulating indoor and outdoor experiences. A balance of structure and free play opportunities through exposure to a variety of materials are provided to facilitate their independence throughout the daily routines. Children are given the chance to play, learn and explore independently in small groups with friends, and as part of a larger group. Toddlers are also introduced to our academic program through High Scope (Theme Based), Montessori, Play-Based, Reggio projects learning styles; all of which include math, language, early printing and project work which are provided age appropriately and tailored to individual abilities. The goal of this program is to help children have a healthy and smooth transition from home to school.
The goals of preschool program begin with the desire to provide a safe, educationally and socially enriching environment in which children can learn to be self-confident away from home. The program seeks to stimulate the child’s curiosity and encourage well-rounded growth for all children based on their individual levels of development. Using various curriculum models – Montessori, Play-Based, High Scope and the Reggio Approach – children get the chance to be involved in a variety of activities that foster their love of learning and discovery. Some elements of the program are more structured, and some depend on the choice of the child, offering an excellent introduction to self-guided learning. The preschool program concentrates on developing the child’s academic skills with a variety of activities. Through group and individual project work, the children will expand their skills in mathematics, science, social skills, music, visual arts, drama and language. Daily routines will be provided to the child and teach him/her to apply these skills to reading, writing, and basic mathematics.
The Kindergarten program offers a more formal classroom setting that is focused around structured, self-guided discovery. With an enriched curriculum and innovative program plans built around High Scope, Reggio and Ontario Ministry guidelines, the program offers exciting opportunities for exploring and learning. Children are exposed to a variety of age-appropriate topics, including Language, Arts, History, Geography, Visual Arts, Music, Mathematics, Science, French, and Physical Education. Field trips are designed to support their understanding of topics that have been introduce to them; seeing music, art, science in real life is a great way to bring a fresh perspective to their classroom learning environment. Our Kindergarten program is designed to help prepare the child for the daily and annual routine of grade one. It is a full program that helps mould the child to know what to expect on their first year of school. Each child will have their own personal work booklets, cubbies and personal pencil case. This will help teach them responsibility and organization of their own personal work space. They become aware of how to clean after themselves and receive homework once a week. At the end of the year each child will receive a report card from their teachers.
