We understand how precious your little one is! At this young age, we encourage them to learn about their world by providing a wealth of experiences to choose from during their day! Activities are based on each child's needs and interests. By balancing individual attention with group interaction, our well-trained educators ensure your baby is learning and experiencing new things each day while being cared for and nurtured in a safe and loving environment.
This is an exciting age, where your toddlers are beginning to develop social skills, increase their vocabulary and are starting to find their independence. Children have daily opportunities to explore and learn about their environment in both indoor and outdoor settings. Our educators encourage the children to communicate verbally and participate in individual and group conversations. Providing these unique learning opportunities and experiences for your toddler enhances their self-concept and individuality. It ultimately gives your child a better start to a firm foundation in their preschool years.
The Preschool Room offers a balance of free play together with structured individual and group activities. This gives your child a well-balanced early education. At this age, children are asking questions about the world around them; they are continuing to develop their self-concept and control. Through our dedicated educators, our program offers opportunities and experiences in areas of science, math, gross and fine motor skills, dramatic play, constructive play, as well as creative and movement activities. We recognize that each child is a unique person with an individual pattern and timing of growth and development. Our educators are sensitive to the different levels of ability and learning styles of each child and consider these factors when developing appropriate activities for this age group.
Our well-trained educators help prepare your child for school readiness experiences. During these activities, children participate in relevant structured and unstructured experiences and in projects that interest and educate them throughout the day. To facilitate the transition into Kindergarten, we aim to assist your child in:
Developing confidence in going to school
Understanding the role of their school educator
Developing effective individual social skills
Developing confidence in interacting in a group setting
Developing self-confidence and self-worth
Developing printing skills and recognition of numbers, letters, shapes and colours
The Learning Tree Preschool, available at the A&D Child Care Centre is designed for children who will be attending Kindergarten the following year. Offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 8:45 am – 11:00 am. This is a 3 morning per week program). Children at this age are excited to learn and investigate their world, which is why we have developed an exciting, hands-on preschool program that will focus on preparing your child for Kindergarten success.
These early grades of your child's schooling are truly an opportunity for them to shine! They learn, explore, reason, read, solve problems and develop lasting friendships! Through our capable educators, we provide guidance and security, with independent exploration. This gives your school-age child the freedom and structure they need at this time. Each week our educators, with input from the children, develop new, interesting, fun and educational projects to engage your child.
