Little Acorn Care Centre

Our Philosophy for Early Childhood Education

Our goal is to help every child be happy, secure, and develop fully to his/her true potential. To meet this goal we offer our families a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment dedicated to providing a warm and inviting atmosphere that allows children to develop at their own pace. Through play experiences and the guidance of staff, your child will be exposed to situations that will stimulate curiosity, initiative and independence. All of this is combined to ensure our preschoolers are prepared when they reach educational kindergarten. Preschool and child care programs are based on children’s interests and learning needs, and include the use of individual, small and large group activities, indoor and outdoor play, learning centers, outings and field trips. Activities will be varied frequently and designed to accommodate individual children’s unique abilities.

Our Programs

We run two full-day, play-based preschool type programs for ages 30 months - 5 years old. Both programs are inclusive, multi-age rooms that implement our philosophy in their own way and help to aid in the development of each child's individuality.
