Philosophy

Learning can be defined in many ways, but foremost it is known as the amount of knowledge one acquires to further themselves cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically. Learning is essential to our development, so we at Small Wunders Child Care Centres, strive to nourish development in all aspects of the word.

Our intent is to ensure that your children have the opportunity to engage in activities that promote social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development in a comfortable environment. All children grow and develop at different rates, and there are general sequences throughout the lifespan that certain skills and abilities emerge. Small Wunders provides an environment for learning, so therefore we strive to provide developmentally appropriate curriculums that both exercise and challenge the different areas of development. All our classrooms contain real life materials and have various activities for children to participate in. Children have opportunities to make choices, set goals, select materials, activities, and play partners. All of these elements will help all children build confidence and self-esteem.

Most facilities provide children with a high scope curriculum. This allows children to develop their own ideals and actively explore. Here at Small Wunders Child Care Centres, we believe that structure and routine are key to a child feeling comfortable and fulfilling achievement. We like for our teachers to sit with our children and help them complete tasks, help them to figure out correct ways to use items and foster new ideas by always asking questions and offering answers. Our teachers are here to help develop well rounded, secure and self confident children in a manner that “does not feel like learning.”

We also believe in our philosophy that our children should be treated as if they were our very own, and we strive to incorporate this into our programming. All of our staff follow and believe in the same philosophy.
