Philosophy of Day Nursery Centre

Day Nursery Centre provides quality care and appropriate experiences in an unbiased environment, so that every child may grow to his/her fullest potential.

Day Nursery Centre recognizes and encourages the development of each child emotionally, physically, intellectually and socially. We encourage children to express their own ideas and feelings through the use of self-expressive materials, to develop problem solving and reasoning skills, and to grow toward independence.

Children need warm, understanding Early Childhood Educators who respect and listen to each child as an individual person.

We recognize that each child and his/her family are unique and we respect their diversity. Day Nursery Centre offers assistance in parenting skills to those parents who request it. We also offer support through cooperation with family service agencies.

Vision Statement

Day Nursery Centre strives to be recognized as a leader and advocate in the Early Childhood Care and Education profession by:

1. Integrating the newest research in programming approaches that best suit the development of each child and his/her family.

2. Promoting current Professional Development and the Health, Safety and Wellness practices of its employees.

Inclusion Statement

All children are entitled to full participation and support to meet their individual needs. At Day Nursery Centre, we believe that all children have the right to be valued, accepted and included. We embrace inclusion and celebrate the diversity in our community such as culture, language, religion and socio-economic statue and ability. Being an inclusive centre in which all children and families are welcome offers countless learning opportunities and benefits for everyone.
