All internal families have until April 7th to complete their camp registration with us. You can find the summer camp flyer here. If you have already signed up, great job! You are on our list and confirmed for summer. Please note we will be opening up registration to external families on April 8th. External families will still need to fill out the registration forms and come in person on or after April 8th. If we do not reopen, information will be posted on our site by April 3rd at the latest. This is on a first come first serve basis and internal families will not be prioritized after the April 7th deadline.

Care and Learning
We work within the ELECT (Early Learning for Every Child Today) curriculum framework, delivering an emergent, child centred and play based curriculum with all age groups. Observations on each child help to frame the activities offered on any given day. Programming documentation is recorded daily, letting parents know what the classroom has been up to.
Play based Learning is a process that involves continuous opportunities for exploration and interactions. All classes have age-appropriate toys and equipment and both indoor and outdoor play spaces. Classrooms allow for quiet and active play; dramatic and messy play and large group activities. Toys and books are arranged so that children have independent access.
A strong indicator of quality is related to the education of staff and their participation in ongoing training in the field of early childhood development and care. Our caring, professional and competent staff apply their knowledge of early childhood and use resources and materials to plan age appropriate activities and provide responsive caregiving. Staff use routines to promote learning and look for opportunities to have meaningful conversations and interactions with children daily.
