Bambi’s Castle Day Care Centre is committed to providing high quality play based child care. We provide an educational program with a special emphasis on nutrition, bilingualism, music, science/nature and outdoor activities. We view children as competent, capable and curious learners and use the “How Does Learning Happen?” document to guide our pedagogy. Our goal is to ensure that we have happy children, satisfied parents and committed child care professionals.
We believe that each child is an individual with strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes. This uniqueness is fostered through a program that allows each child to explore the world and form conclusions. We recognize that children need to like and respect themselves and to feel loved and valued. Children are given opportunities to make choices and decisions through the sharing of ideas, materials and space.
Our philosophy is play based, recognizing that through play a child learns about the world around them and about themselves and others. Creativity is fostered throughout the day. No guns, war toys or other toys of destruction are permitted in the centre. We encourage alternate creative ways for children to express and explore feelings of frustration or anger. We provide consistency in enforcing some general rules and provide developmentally appropriate limits to ensure the safety and well being of all children is respected.
Our aim is to provide a loving, stimulating and non-pressured environment that will meet the needs of the child and their families. We encourage parent engagement through daily communication, our subscription to HiMama and through various activities in which parents are invited to attend.
