Gardening

The Toddler and Preschool Groups have a garden in their outdoor space. Each spring, the children and teachers contribute and create beautiful and educational container/raised bed gardens.

Sport

Children need to develop large motor and small motor skills and cardiovascular endurance. Extensive physical activity is also needed to address a growing problem of obesity in American children.

Art

Kids will love designing and creating puppets and collages, constructing musical instruments and flower bouquets, and painting, gluing, and crafting to their hearts’ content!

Excursions

Excursions form a vital part of a child’s early education. They expose a child to a range of different experiences and enable them to gain a sense of the world in which they find themselves.

Outdoor

Our children benefit from a variety of outdoor play spaces. In addition to our playground, they experience the natural wonders of the forest, the big field, our raised gardens and nature walks.

Math

A preschool math curriculum should be taught using preschool lessons including interactive activities, learning games, printable worksheets, assessments, and reinforcement.

Literacy

A systematic and integrated literacy program promote language development preschool children. The program uses systematic, direct instruction built around a series of weekly books in the classroom.

Centre Information

To introduce children to new ideas and challenges, allowing creativity and self expression. We try to address each child’s individual interests through a wide variety of activities and play, appropriate to their developmental needs, in a loving and nurturing environment.

  1. Image of the child

    Teachers can then shape and build on that knowledge by discovering what children already know through observation, one-on-one conversation, clarification, and invitation to explore the world around them.

  2. Positive Discipline

    Spanking or other methods of corporal punishment are never to be used as a means of disciplining students. This no spanking policy extends to parents with their own children while at school or school sponsored events.

  3. Environment is important

    We like to work and play in attractive surroundings so our buildings are clean, relatively tidy, and pleasing to the eye. The outdoor environments are large, have colourful and interesting gardens, and a variety of activities.

    Love the teachers and the fun things they do with my daughter 😊 My daughter always tells me she had a good, fun day while at daycare. Communication is always great with the daycare, and I always know what uncomimg events or activities are planned.

    My daughter has been going to this daycare for at least 4 years now and she loves it! The staff are highly trained and great with all the kids. They always have wonderful fun learning activities for the kids and have nutritious meals for the kids throughout the day, having the daycare make lunch and have snacks provided for the kids is such a relief! The staff is great at communicating with the parents and really make the transition from being home to daycare really smooth for the little ones just starting out at daycare. Would highly recommend this daycare/out of school to anyone! Really glad to have found this place.
