INFANT CARE

(Under 2 Years)

Young children need lots of love and extra special care and our Infant Care program provide just that for under 2-year-olds. Each dedicated infant room is a comfortable place filled with nurturing surroundings and loving care. 

Our program offers each child one-on-one and group activities, gentle play and safe exploration. It is stimulating to the development of young minds without being overwhelming.

Each infant's needs are different, so we have flexible routines for babies under 12 months. There are areas for sleep, relaxing and personal space and the opportunity for outdoor experiences in the fresh air. Moreover, you don’t miss out on all those little things that happen each day, your child has their own personal learning journal that captures their journey as it unfolds.

Teachers in our infant classrooms are committed to creating a safe and nurturing atmosphere where babies can explore and interact with their environment and peers in the classroom. Teachers will encourage and assist the children on Physical Development, Language/Literacy, Cognitive and General Knowledge, Approaches to Learning, Social/Emotional Development and Creative Arts using healthy interactions with other infants and adults.

TODDLER CARE

(2-3 YEARS)

For a toddler, the world is a magical place, full of constant learning and exploration. When caring for toddlers we help facilitate that adventure along with positive emotional guidance helping them to understand the boundaries of their independence.

We help provide structure to little lives through a consistent routine, which includes free play, structured play, group times for music and language, and outdoor experiences. Our encouraging and nurturing staff are sensitive to the individual needs of each toddler’s social and emotional development. In addition, each child has their own personal learning journal, which helps you follow them on their exciting journey of self-discovery.

Teachers in our toddler classrooms focus on self-soothing and self-regulation techniques, promoting independence, motor-skill development and coordination. Curiosity and imagination are where the learning begins. The teacher will assess the children daily in the areas of Physical Development, Language/Literacy, Social/Emotional Development and Creative Arts.

PRESCHOOL CARE

(3-5 YEARS)

As 3-year-olds start coming into their own, it’s important they have time and space to explore their independence in a safe and supportive environment. We help develop autonomy and an openness to learning.

We encourage respectfulness and nurture social development skills. Our structured yet flexible program provides lots of opportunities for individual and group learning in language, music, communications and problem-solving skills. And because children also have so much energy to burn, our exciting outdoor play areas offer plenty of room for active play. Your child will also have their own personal learning journal so you can see what they’ve been up to.

Our teachers will focus on helping the preschoolers explore and develop their sense of self. Our daily schedule provides consistency and flexibility with a good mix of Physical play, Social/Emotional Development, Language /Literacy, Approaches to Learning, Cognitive and General Knowledge Activities and Creative Arts. Our teachers will track your child’s progress through the child’s assessment portfolio system and daily communication tools.

School Readiness Program

Our school readiness program is aimed at preparing our young people for big school/kindergarten. We focus on helping children understand and deal with their emotions, to be able to initiate friendships and develop self-confidence and self-esteem. We know that social and emotional readiness will assist in a successful entry to school, allowing them to be effective learners.

Our school readiness program, with qualified teachers, offers a secure and encouraging environment for children to develop autonomy, focus on respectful relationships and understand social courtesies. We engage children with an individual, small group and whole group experiences and structured group sessions for discussion times, music and language. All activities are designed to be flexible and are focused on the learning experience rather than the academic outcome, while literacy and numeracy are introduced naturally through everyday experiences.
