We believe that children learn about themselves, others and the world around them through play. We set up the environment that allows children to naturally learn and practice important skills that encourages development in all areas such as social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative.

Our 3 to 5 daycare program focuses on early learning and has a Reggio Emilia approach to learning.

Teachers support growth and learning on a weekly basis by encouraging and implementing activities which interest children such as science and discovery, fine and gross motor, dramatic play, art, music and dance, reading and sports. We strive to foster an environment where each child feels comfortable in learning.

 

What is an emergent curriculum?

An emergent curriculum is one that builds upon the interests of children. Topics for study are captured from the talk of children, through community or family events, as well as the known interests of children (puddles, shadow, dinosaurs, etc.). Team planning is an essential component of the emergent curriculum. Teachers work together to formulate the possible directions of a project, the materials needed, and possible parent and/or community support and involvement.
