Educational Program

Our program has been created to enable each child to build on basic skills as stepping stones to the next skill. Progress will vary with each child's personal development. Therefore, we sometimes work in a small group and at other times, on a one to one basis.

Programs are evaluated regularly to reflect changes to the Day Nurseries Act and updated ideas on Early Childhood Education. Educators are involved in several professional development workshops to bring the center fresh ideas concern and knowledge to the children’s optimum well being. Information about workshops offered to parents by the community will be posted on the parent information board in the main entry.
