our Core Values
Why we are more than a daycare
Value of Play
Our role is to provide a rich variety of materials and adequate space so that children have opportunities for play which promotes growth in all areas.
Arts & Crafts
Creative art is a chance for children to express themselves, experiment with ideas, refine motor skills and feel a sense of independence. The art centre has a variety multi-cultural materials of different sizes, shapes, textures and colors for the children to use.
Children learn to master new skills such as eye-hand coordination, turn taking, social skills, and other cognitive abilities while engaging in play in our learning centres.
Children learn about the world around them through their senses. The children explore various mediums such as water, playdoh, while incorporating skills like pouring, mixing and measuring. There are plenty of opportunities for exploration and discovery at this centre on a daily basis.
We take pride in having a full size indoor gymnasium and 2 outdoor playgrounds providing opportunities to enhance motors skills.
