We encourage parents to ask their children specific questions about their day. This can help with language and social skills. To assist in forming these questions, we have a brief summary of our day posted near the communication board. Here you will find what your child ate for snack, what they did in circle, and any special events that may have happened throughout the day!
Though your child may not nap, he/she will be required to rest quietly (not sleep) on their mat for a shorter time. We feel like every child needs this time to restore their bodies for the upcoming afternoon!
We implement an intentional mix of learning-through-play and an educational curriculum that encourages exploration and discovery.
Each child will be allowed no more than 20 minutes of screen time per day. This is normally in the form of music video where children will dance and sing to. It is used for educational programming and activities only.
The facility is closed on:
- All statutory holidays, including Good Friday and Easter Monday.
- Christmas Break from December 24 until after the New Year (same as school opening).
- One or two training days per year.
If your child has any of the following symptoms, please keep them at home:
- Fever of 99.5F & more
- Nausea or vomiting
- Rashes on the skin
- Discharge from eyes
- Diarrhea or loose stool
- Any contagious virus
Children will be encouraged to discuss their feelings of anger with the teacher and/or peers. Absolutely no physical form of punishment is allowed. Positive role modeling and encouragement of appropriate behavior is used.
Children are not encouraged to bring toys form home to play with. However, we do allow them to bring a special toy which helps them sleep. We keep it in the child’s cubby until nap time.
To help with the transition, you are encouraged to visit the center with your child before he or she starts. Each child is different: some children adjust quickly, while others take several weeks to become comfortable. We will do everything we can to make your child’s transition to the program a positive one.
In the case of an emergency, we will call you immediately asking you to come to the centre as soon as possible. If you don’t answer, we will phone your emergency contact person.
