All our programs provide an enhanced curriculum: We use proven Highscope and Emergent Curriculum and deliver it using the Ministry of Education's Early Learning for Every Child Today (ELECT) framework. We focus on the following areas:
The Toddler Program consists of up to 20 children ranging in age from 18 months to 2 1/2 years. The adults to child ratio is 1 to 5. This programme aims provide a safe and nurturing environment, build trusting relationships, and promote autonomy and self-esteem.
The Pre School Program consists of up to 16 children, ranging in age from 2 1/2 to 4 years. The adults to child ratio is 1 to 8. We strive to provide children with positive learning experiences and help them become independent. Some activities include social skills, and problem solving.
The Full Day Kindergarten Program takes place in the kindergarten classroom, providing the children with a seamless day with fewer transitions. The daycare staff and kindergarten teachers work in close partnership to implement a program based both on children interests and that meet the curriculum expectations.
