“Playing” provides heaps of opportunities for children to explore, learn and develop new skills! When children play, they use all their senses – hearing, seeing, tasting, touching, smelling and moving to gather information about their world.
Our skilled teachers prepare curriculums that are exciting and challenging, as well as supportive of each child’s own learning style. They organize each day’s activities to provide children with a variety of experiences and opportunities that allow them to develop curiosity, initiative, problem-solving skills, and creativity, as well as a sense of self and a feeling of belonging to the group. Our teachers plan activities for children with special needs, with training and technical assistance from disabilities and mental health specialists. They implement individual education plans, behavior management plans, and/or individualized services or activities as outlined for these children.
