A day at play!!

20240529_162300.jpg

Daycare years, as with all aspects of childhood, are a period to grow and explore. Each child, infant or toddler grows at their own pace. Each day ahead is an unwritten page of a beautiful life waiting to happen. A life full of promise and love, the love from parents, family and all care givers create learning moments and memories that make a child become who they will be.

Here we focus on growing by exploring and above all being free to create and get messy. A child's desire to touch, taste, use and smell everything around them gives them a sense of security and fosters their imagination. Here children play freely, join in when others are doing projects and crafts, dance when we play music or sit quietly working on their own. Their options are endless, always open and changing!

 

 

Outside play is important daily, weather permitting of course. Great Esker Park is 2 homes away and a wonderful place to experience nature. We picnic, play ball, etc and the older kids bring ride-on toys there too. The children have fun and learn from everything they do. Everyday is full of new learning experiences.

 

 

Playtime, stories, hugs and kisses are all included in the childhood recipe for success!!
