About Us

Philosophy

  • Play and Learn Nursery School provides a safe and happy environment for children of all abilities. By creating a positive and stimulating atmosphere, combined with a flexible schedule of activities, children are encouraged in all areas of their development - social, emotional, intellectual and physical.

Goals

  • To be inclusive in providing developmentally appropriate group experiences for all children in a secure, stimulating and child-centred environment.
  • To recognize all children have specific abilities and needs, as well as a unique relationship to the world reflecting their family's background, history and culture.
  • To encourage "hands-on" learning experiences that include children with additional support needs, and provide all children the opportunity to develop physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually.
  • To provide areas that all children can easily access and make choices based on their abilities, interests and needs.
  • To provide time away from home in a safe environment that will promote a sense of confidence and self-identity.
  • To provide an inclusive atmosphere that is non-competitive and allows for full development of each child's individuality.
  • To provide guidance in handling physical aggression, anger and in expressing positive and negative emotions in a manner that is appropriate.
  • To promote opportunities for each child to be an individual, to do things alone as well as in a group, to be different.

Staff

  • The staff of Early Childhood Educators (ECES) and Child Care Assistants (CCAS) are warm and caring professionals who are experienced in early childhood development. The teachers welcome communications with parents and this contact enhances child/staff relationships and helps to create a positive pre-school experience for each child.
