At Kids Kampus we are here to provide quality child care to all children in our programs. We know that children learn so much through their play and that access to developmentally appropriate play materials, along with educated staff, can make for learning experiences that children need.
Children are supported and encouraged to be independent in their decisions about their play, as well as the direction of their play. The caregivers are here to observe and provide materials that are developmentally appropriate and of the children’s interest, so that the children are able to reap the full benefits of their play.
Children develop at their own pace, and that we, as childcare providers, must recognize this and be there to nurture this development and provide the experiences and materials needed to aid in their developmental process. As well, all children are individuals and each must be treated that way. Each child has their own strengths and weaknesses and the programming needs to be able to reflect this. Adjustments in programming to cater to the needs of each child will be carried out by the child care providers.
We encourage involvement from the child’s family and wish to develop a bond with them. We think of our centre as part of each child’s extended family and work together as a team to provide the best care for each child. We support each family’s culture and beliefs, and do our best to incorporate this into our programming. (ex. Celebrating different holidays that happen, pictures, guests , having literature on different cultures in the room, etc)
Our childcare program is based on the knowledge that children learn through play and through observations of children during play. To facilitate learning a wide variety of areas are available for children each day, including: Sand/Water/Sensory play, Dramatic play, Science area, Block area, Music and Movement area, Reading area and Art area. We also provide 2 large outdoor play areas that we take advantage of daily, as weather permits. We love to experience the beauty of nature.
