Our philosophy of care focuses on the whole child.
- We believe the early years of life build a framework for lifelong learning.
- We believe in the dignity and value of all children.
- We believe that social and intellectual skills are best learned in an environment where self-esteem is nurtured and respect
- We believe that children learn best through active exploration, experimentation and problem solving in a safe and
In keeping with this philosophy, Peekaboo Child Care Centre provides a program that helps children develop a love for learning, independence, self-regulation and the ability to interact positively with others. We recognize that each child is unique and provide a comfortable, safe and nurturing environment where children will be stimulated to develop social, physical, emotional and intellectual skills. Our programs focus on developing well-rounded, secure and self-confident children, while having fun and making new friends.
We realize that parents are the most important adults in a child's life so we do everything possible to involve you in our program. Through Canada's first Video Over Internet (VOI), you will have the comfort and enjoyment that comes with being able to see your child at any point during the day by simply logging onto the Internet. VOI also allows traveling parents or distant relatives the opportunity to see your child at play every day. Through the VOI we hope that parents will share in their child's day like never before. In addition to your child's stories of their day you can actually become part of their experience through sharing their day visually.
If you have any questions with regard to you child's care, the running of your child's classroom or any other aspect of the centre, please do not hesitate to speak to the centre's supervisor. We look forward to caring for your child. Please stop by any time, an appointment is never needed.
All of our staff meet or exceed the provinces requirement for educational achievement. Every classroom is headed by a teacher with a degree in either early childhood development or education. Additional staff have either formal training in early childhood education or equivalent training and experience. Staffing levels are maintained according to the requirements of the Day Nurseries Act.
Staff members are thoroughly screened, references are checked, and they must undergo a health and physical examination. Only the most qualified, thoughtful and caring staff work at Peekaboo. Following our careful selection process each staff member receives training and centre orientation before beginning work in the classroom. Their skills and competency are evaluated on an ongoing basis. Your feedback and comments to the supervisor or director with regards to the staff are encouraged. Occasionally student volunteers will work in the centre, under the direct supervision of qualified staff. Their presence is a great asset to the centre as well as valuable experience in their education.
