Infant Toddler Program (0-36 months)
We aim to develop and foster the potential in every child through an enriched, nurturing and safe early learning environment. The infant toddler program offer full-time care for children ages 0-36 months and we work in concert with families and the care givers to develop children who are caring, capable and enthusiastic about the world around them. Offering care to infants, we incorporate equipment and toys which provide texture, sounds and offers a range of different sensory experiences. Nurturing caregivers support the child while they are exploring, whether it’s through finger painting, playing with blocks, listening to songs or engaging in story-time.
We help children become comfortable and secure in a new group setting and independent of primary family members. As infant development emerges, additional learning outcomes include such things as self-feeding skills, labeling body parts and enhanced coordination.
Day Care Program (Three to Five Years)
Our Daycare Program staff are licensed Early Childhood Educators and Early Childhood Education Assistants, fully trained in Emergency Child Care First Aid. All staff attend many conferences and workshops yearly to continue to build our knowledge about child development. Our program follows the British Columbia Early Learning Framework. We offer learning activities that promote and nurture all areas of child development: Social, Emotional, Intellectual, Physical and Language Development. Teachers develop and adapt individual programs by observing and listening to children.
