Child’s Paradise Day Care is dedicated to providing outstanding childcare services in a bright and fun place where children feel safe to explore, learn and grow. As a licensed child care centre in Ontario, the childcare programming is guided by the Ministry’s How Does Learning Happen (LDHL) Framework and the Educators in the Centre seek ongoing up-to-date knowledge of how children learn.

 

Our goal is to meet the needs of the parents and children and to enrich each child’s safety, emotional well-being, health, nutrition, and cognitive stimulation through the child’s daily routines, physical care, activities and interactions.

 

The children form close relationships with the Educators and other adults in the Program. The staff offer warm consistent care to teach and nurture the children in a loving and respecting manner. Parents and children are encouraged to bring in comfort items for sleep time and photos from home. The Educators value and respect parent views and realize that parents are the most important teachers for their children. Children benefit from the open communication, cooperation and support between parents and staff. Parents are encouraged to be involved in their child’s day, discuss concerns and be a part of the Program.

 

Staff accept all children of all ages and abilities and focus on each child's individual abilities and successes. All children are treated with respect and dignity and are allowed the freedom to grow at their own rates, while encouraging them to interact and communicate in positive ways with their caregivers and with each other. Staff members support children in their learning process and develop activities that support individual ways children, planning activities that nurture their curiosity, support and increase their abilities, and help children find creative solutions to problems. Our job, as caregivers, is to provide the children with the child-initiated and adult-supported experiences and an environment in which children are safe to explore and create; knowing that they will be successful asking questions, making discoveries, and by being themselves. Children are seen as competent, capable, curious individuals that are rich in potential.

 

We, at Child’s Paradise Day Care Centre, believe that balance and structure is needed in children's lives, and therefore incorporate indoor and outdoor activity, active and quiet play, and rest time in order to meet the needs of each individual child. We also, believe, however, that children also need to have some freedom and a reasonable amount of control over their lives and learn self-regulation skills. Children will be encouraged to make choices and decisions whenever possible.

 

The Educators seek ways in which to connect the child and family to the Centre, other parents, the community and others. Outside service providers and local community partners are encouraged to come in and assist in ensuring the child’s needs are met. Parents are encouraged to complete yearly Centre Evaluations to document their childcare experiences and to help the Educators better meet the needs of the community, families and children that they serve. 

 

The goal is to promote happy, healthy, well-adjusted children that feel good about themselves, and parents that know that we care for and accept their children for themselves.
