Although we are a drop-in centre, we are structured like a preschool/daycare. Therefore, we are pleased to offer an engaging play based curriculum that builds on the strengths and interest of children, to nurture each child’s individual development. Our play based setting creates opportunities to build skills in communication, social awareness, and intellectual development. In addition, our program is focused on helping children get ready to enter more formal programs, such as preschool and school. To learn more about our classes or weekly themes, click here.
We are committed to keeping our learning environment fresh through themed play based activities. We encourage parents to bring their children in for at least 3 hours a day, 2 times per week to get them accustomed to our structure and help prepare them for full time care, preschool or school.
