A Day in the Life of an Infant at Preschool Canada

For the first few months of your child being with us, we will follow your child’s routine which they have been accustomed to at home.  It is important to us that their transition from home to daycare be smooth. That is why consistency is the key.  As your child gets accustomed to our daily routine, they will enjoy 2 hours of outdoor time per day.  They will also participate in age appropriate learning engagements throughout the day.  We offer 2 snack times and a meal time, however additional nutritious snacks will be provided should your child require. They will interact with other children, making friends and our staff, forming meaningful and trusting relationships.

Learning through Play and an Emergent Curriculum

At Preschool Canada, we follow the Emergent/Play Based Curriculum. We allow their interests to help navigate our planning.  This means that our educators pay close attention and document children’s interest to help us plan successful learning opportunities for each child. We understand that it’s not meaningful to have all children, do the same thing at the same time. Therefore, we plan many experiences allowing children to feel supported every step of the way. This pedagogy of childcare allows us to offer individualized programming for every child, as we plan their day based on their interests.  This proven philosophy of childcare keeps them engaged in authentic learning engagements.

Twice a year our teachers complete individual reports for parents. We use the Nipissing District Developmental Screen (ndds). This allows parents a chance to view where their child is at developmentally and allows the opportunity for teachers and parents to work closely together to ensure their child succeeds at their own pace.

In the toddler room, children will engage in many different learning activities. They will participate in many areas of learning! Our teachers plan sensorial learning engagements and many different small activities which foster the development of the children’s fine motor skills. Our teachers use the ELECT Document to guide their planning along with the Children’s interest. Children in the toddler program at Preschool Canada can look forward to 2 hours a day of outdoor play, 2 snacks and lunch, and lots of time to move through educational centers set up in the room. Our toddlers also have a 2 hour rest period where they nap on their cots; this allows them the rest their growing bodies and minds throughout the day!

Learning through Play and an Emergent Curriculum

Preschool Canada begins teaching toddlers many fundamental skills. Fine motor development and practical life skills are a large part of our toddler curriculum. Children work on how to perform self-help tasks and work on tasks like; scopping, filling and emptying, zippers, pouring, etc.

In addition to self-help skills, we begin to work on age appropriate numeracy, literacy and most importantly social skills.  We embed these skills into our everyday room routine to ensure the children enjoy and learn these important life skills. Twice a year our teachers complete individual reports for parents. We use the Nipissing District Developmental Screen (ndds). This allows parents a chance to view where their child is at developmentally and allows the opportunity for teachers and parents to work closely together to ensure their child succeeds at their own pace.
