Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on the belief that children learn best through “play”, while experiencing the world around them. As early childhood educators, we believe our role is to provide a welcoming and safe setting, as we offer daily opportunities for early learning in all areas, including: self help skills, self confidence, and empathy for others. Our goal is to foster a child’s development as a whole (physical, intellectual, language, emotional, social) and life-long curiosity.

Some ways we do this include:

  • primary caregivers and small group sizes
  • Expanding monthly themes (often child led)
  • Early literacy programming
  • Free play in age appropriate developmental areas (such as dramatic play, library, block areas, and sensory and art experiences)
  • Daily circle times (exploring science, language, social and community issues)
  • Outdoor play (discovery, make-believe, and gross motor development)
  • Community involvement (regular walks in the neighbourhood, visitors of interest such as nurses etc)
  • Free play centres (hands-on science, sensory, and dramatic play etc.}
  • Turn-taking “circles” (show and tell, Q&A’s, literacy, music, gross motor)
  • Empathy programming (virtues)
  • Tactile art classes with many recycled and natural materials
  • Weekly yoga classes by a trained yoga instructor
  • Interactive music lessons through the Victoria Conservatory of Musicvictoria music
