More About Our Daycare

At Happy Hearts, our 3-5 children are very busy.  We do find that our “littles” need to have a routine or schedule so that each child knows and understands what we will be doing next.  For some children this is very important for them.   With a philosophy of a play based centre or Reggio, we believe that there is so much to learn from play based activities.  We know that different types of play can help with children’s Cognitive, Affective, and Physical development.

Our Early Childhood Educators along with the help of our Early Childhood Educator Assistants plan their curriculum based on this philosophy and the importance of child development.  Along with curriculum at the centre our ECE’s plan field trips within the community.  As all children walk together they make trips to the local library, open gym, and local parks.  We send a newsletter and calendar home every month so parents are able to see what is happening in the month.
