Philosophy

We aim to provide daily experiences that support and promote each child's physical, emotional, social, communication, cognitive, ethical and creative development. We promote the vision that every child is capable and full of potential.

We strive to develop and maintain an overall environment that supports the development of all children. And best of all, we like to have fun!

Program

As children learn through play, our program offers indoor and outdoor activities, as well as stories, songs, rhythmic activities, art experiences, cooking, gym days and games with other children.

In our program, we will provide the opportunity for the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of each child. We are also flexible to each child's needs.

Learn Through Play

Our early childhood education framework in BC promotes learning through play. Play is considered the "work" of children. Through play, children interact with, explore and make sense of the world around them, while playing alone or with others. The positive emotions and enjoyment related with play are very important. Children have fun through play; play enhances learning; and children learn through play.

Early Learning

Our vision and principles follow the BC early learning framework for children. The areas of early learning are: well being and belonging, exploration and creativity, language and literacies and social responsibility and diversity.

Children will have fun while being supported to develop the skills , knowledge and disposition for learning in our challenging and changing society.

Children's Families

Our goal is to establish an open, cooperative relationship with each child's family and other community services involved with the child.

We have created a relaxing and flexible environment where families feel comfortable asking questions, sharing information and expressing their needs and wants for their children and schedule.

We encourage and appreciate parental interest in the centre's activities and welcome any comments from parents and families. We always want to keep the channel of communication open.
