Children's Programs

In recognising that children learn more in their first 5 years than at any other time, qualified staff in each room plan a variety of experiences to encourage individual development.

During the day there is a balance between active and passive activities indoors and outdoors.   Experiences provided stimulate and enhance all areas of development through individual exploration and small group experiences. The program includes creative art, music and     movement, dramatic and creative play, math and problem solving, fine and gross motor play, sensory experiences, literature, cooking, nature and science, and the development of each child socially and emotionally.

The children’s program is displayed in each room, and parents may request to see their child’s observations at any time.

Food & Nutrition

Meal times at the Centre are a time for enjoying healthy eating with the company of other children and staff.
