At Kennedy Road Kiddy Kare, we offer a variety of child care programs based on the child’s age. Each program is designed specifically for children in that age group and will help them to learn and grow in the ways best for them. All of our programs allow the children to spend time outside on a daily basis, weather permitting, and the foyer of our centre is equipped with a variety of activities to use during inclement weather.
This program focuses on the overall development of the child with a focus on social and self-help skills. It is offered from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The programming and implementation is based on the needs and interests of the children. Children will participate in a variety of crafts, cognitive games, sensory activities, learning circles, dramatic play and other planned activities. Time is spent outdoors daily in our enclosed playground with a variety of bicycles, sand toys and sports equipment.
All children will have a portfolio which will be completed based on daily observation of the children and will include setting up goals as well as pictures of their involvement in daily activities. The observation will be shared with parents. The centre is also pleased to offer parents the flexibility of a 5, 3 or 2 day option in our toddler program.
Our preschool program focuses on the overall development of the child with a focus on social skills in the first half of the school year. The programming and implementation is based on the needs and interests of the children. Our Registered Early Childhood Educators focus on getting your child ready for kindergarten with planned numeracy and literacy activities. Learning is play based both inside and outside the classroom.
Activities are planned through the observations of the children and therefore are designed with the children’s interests and needs in mind. Children enrolled full time are offered a breakfast from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM, along with 2 light snacks and a hot lunch, which is prepared on site. There is an option for part time care from 8:50 AM to 3:00 PM.
