Your Child’s Day
Junior Age Children, 1 - 4 years old
This is a fun day that promotes social communication through play based learning experiences.
Music, dancing, singing and circle-time are a part of their daily activities. Toddlers will be encouraged to explore the arts and crafts and begin rudimentary drawing skills, as well as learn their shapes, colours, numbers, and letters and improve their language, gross motor and fine motor skills.
I also promote the development of independent skills such as self-feeding and proper table manners, dressing, and eventually as children grow toward the next stage of development, toilet training skills will be supported. Of

In the mornings the children will be encouraged to work independently on eating their breakfast and getting their outdoor attire on. We will walk to school (weather permitting I may need to drive the children to school.)
Once the children have been dismissed from school, we may either play at a nearby park, or go directly home. The children will be motivated to eat any remaining food that is left in their lunch containers and then be provided with seasonal fruits and a wholesome snack. With time remaining, it would be the child's choice to participate in arts & crafts or free-time until their parent's come and pick them up.
“Play expands intelligence, stimulates the imaginaton, encourages creative problem solving, and helps develop confidence, self-esteem, and a positive attitude toward learning.”
Dr. Fraser Mustard
course, proper social manners and independent problem solving skills are focused on as well.
Since outdoor play is a must to balance the physical well being, I will have the children play outside in the backyard, at the splash park, pond or forested park (weather permitting).
This full day offers your child an inviting and engaging opportunity to learn and grow at an independent rate while enjoying a loving and nurturing home shared with all aged children.
Daily reports are posted indicating diaper changes, menu and nap times.
