Programs and Activities
- It is by playing that the child lives a new experience and learns to better develop in all five holistic areas – when the child finds pleasure in the activity, this makes the child more receptive in learning – therefore the centre offers attractive activities that are diverse and based on the interest of the child.
- Giving the child a few times to make choices in the activities proposed and according to their fields of interest allows the success of learning.
- Schedule is flexible and allows toddlers to have moments of free play or they can explore the different corners.
- The proposed activities can be changed according to the need and interest of the toddlers – adaptations are made to meet the needs of each child because staff understand that each child is different and unique in their development and learning.
- Different activities include:
- Reading Centre: facilitates the development of language and allows the child to discover the magic of books, imagination, and understanding.
- Drama Centre: the child develops social skills such as sharing, compassion, cooperation, and organization.
- Centre of Construction and Block Games: the child learns mathematical concepts such as forms, classification, numbering – also helps to develop the child’s creativity.
- Centre of Table Games: the child learns to concentrate, to develop strategies, to play in a team, to handle objects, to make sensory experiences etc.
- Promotes French speaking culture.
- Centre respects and values the cultural diversity of all the families without distinction.
- Believe the child needs to eat foods that are varied, balanced, and that consider all the nutrients that their body needs to develop well.
