Ages of Children
Birth to 5 years
All of the teachers are professional Early Childhood Educators.
They plan and prepare a fun, interesting, positive learning environment
through which your child will enhance her/his own level of development.
Through play experiences and the guidance of the Early Childhood
Educators, your child will be exposed to situations that will
stimulate curiosity, initiative and independence; self-esteem
and decision-making capabilities; interaction with, and respect
for others; physical activity that develops gross-motor skills;
communication skills; and fine-motor skills. Some of the activities
that are presented every day for your child
bead stringing, peg boards, books, science materials, easel painting
and a family life centre. We have animals that the children can
learn to care for. Music, games, finger-plays and stories are
part of our everyday activities. Outdoor play/neighborhood walks
are also part of the daily program. Nutritious snacks and a hot
meal at lunchtime are provided.
A subsidy is available for those who qualify. Please phone the
Childcare for further information.
