to meet the needs of young children & their families. All programs
are free of charge to our registered families.
INTERACTIVE LEARING CIRCLE
Our daily learning learning circle is developmentally planned for children 0-6 years. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate in the circle activities with their child. It facilitates numeracy, literacy, turn taking, creativity, listening skills and social skills.
This program is a nutritional cooking and baking experience that children participate in with their caregiver. This workshop teaches fun and safe activities that children can do in the kitchen. It promotes healthy eating habits through the use of recipes, as well as develops early literacy and numeracy skills.
School's Cool is a readiness program that runs twice a year for children 3-5yrs. It helps develop language, social, reasoning and self help skills. Children attend this program alone. This is a very popular program; we get positive feedback from the parents. People return to our centre after their children have entered the school system to tell us what an easy transition it was for the family because of their experience with School's Cool.
ESSO FAMILY MATH
This 6 week interactive math program is for parents and their children aged 3.5-6yrs of age. It introduces games, activities and stories to reinforce skills and develop math concepts. We explore estimating, graphing, patterns, shapes and measurement. This program encourages risk-taking and problem solving in order to develop both confidence and a positive attitude towards mathematics.
This is a 5 week program filled with songs for mothers and infants to interact with.

We are very happy to have Debbie Kempt and Patti Willick here to answer questions that our families may have. She is a wonderful addition to our centre. We provide a variety of brochures and books for parents/caregivers. We assist with referrals to community services and professionals. We offer Developmental Preschool Screens for registered families.
Weather permitting, this program runs outdoors. We have a large grass area where children participate in teacher directed and free time activities. During this program we promote the need for physical activity and show parents/caregivers how easy it is for them to do these activities at home.
