Early Education Programs

 

pROGRAM

All classes are offered for children ages 3–5. We believe that this multi-age classroom greatly benefits the learning of all children involved.

  • Children have the opportunity to form friendships and learn with children of a variety of ages, developmental levels, abilities and interests.

  • It allows siblings to attend classes together.

  • Younger children benefit from being guided and challenged by the older children and the older childrens’ skills and knowledge are strengthened through teaching and caring for the younger ones.

  • The older students are excellent role models for the younger ones and the older children learn patience and empathy for their younger friends.

  • The multi-age classes also allow flexibility in each student’s class schedule, i.e. each student can attend the number of classes per week that they are ready for.

OSC Program Philosophy .

We believe children’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs are met in a safe, caring and supportive environment.

The best interests of the child are the most important concern.

Care is provided in a way that:

– protects the child from harm;

– respects the child’s dignity and privacy;

– promotes the child’s well being; and

– provides positive experiences for the child.

  • Programs are meaningful, educational and acknowledge the importance of play and leisure in a child’s life.

  • Freedom of choice in experiences is balanced with age appropriate programming and opportunity for child initiated planning.

Early Childhood Care Programs

This program provides Early childhood education to children between the ages of 12 months to 5 years old.

Our Program

We offer programs for children ranging from toddlers to school age. If you have any questions about these programs, please feel free to contact us.

Toddlers
At this age, children are meeting new challenges as fast as they come. Crawling, walking and eventually running are levels they accomplish in what seems like a blink of an eye. Children learn best if they are in a stimulating environment. Music, stories, outdoor play, and learning simplicities envelop much of the day. Our caregivers are dedicated to helping each child develop these skills through a trusting and loving relationship. A parental daily report is given to update each family on meal times, nap times, toilet training and all activities accomplished each day.
