ABOUT

The Ledbury Park Childcare Program is a community based non-profit centre. We provide programs for children ages 2.5 - 12 years.

We’re delighted to be located inside Ledbury Park Elementary and Middle School and have a wonderful relationship with Administration, Support and Teaching staff. Our program provides a unique opportunity for children to develop socially, physically, emotionally, intellectually and creatively.

PHILOSOPHY

We provide a fun and safe atmosphere which fosters cooperation, responsibilty, and of course, fun. Each child’s sense of self esteem and autonomy is enhanced by our warm and caring environment.

Through our dedicated staff, we ensure an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect among the children. We know each child is unique in the way he or she experiences life and this individuality will be recognized and respected.

Our play based learning philosophy and emergent curriculum approach ensures that all children learn with and through material and experiences that have meaning and are important to them. Our teachers plan learning experiences through daily observation of not only the group, but individual interest.

Most important, a child’s day should be as happy of an experience as we can provide!

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

Preschool is a child’s first experience in a school setting! The preschoolers at Ledbury Park childcare are a part of the Ledbury Park Elementry and Middle school family! They are involved in all school events, assemblies, picture days, fundraising, classroom games and friendly competition. Together with the school, the Preschoolers stand for Oh Canada and morning announcements before they begin each day!

Through an Emergent curriculum, children learn through materials and experiences that have meaning to them. Our Early Childhood Teachers provide an enriched, prepared and welcoming environment each day.

Based off individual and group observations, the teachers add materials to the environment to further their interest and help them reach new goals as set in the Continuum of Develop, a tool used by Early Childhood Educators to help children reach goals in the areas of Social, Emotional, Communication, Language and Literacy, Cognition, and Motor skills.

Extra curricular activities are based on the childrens' interest and have included Yoga, Sportball, lego, music and dance. Seasonal field trips to destinations such as the farm, children's theatre, gymnastics, zoos and aquariums are part of our enriched curriculum.

Computer use, both desktop and tablet are accessible.

Group circle time, cooking, life skill activities, outdoor play, rest period, lunch and snack times are part of their day!
