Philosophy

“Play in our species serves many valuable purposes. It is a means by which children develop their physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and moral capacities. It is a means of creating and preserving friendships. It also provides a state of mind that, in adults as well as children, is uniquely suited for high-level reasoning, insightful problem solving, and all sorts of creative endeavours.”  -Psychology Today

 

Boy PlayingAt Play and Learn, it is my goal to foster a love for learning at a young age, and to help your child reach their full potential in all areas of development.  Children develop differently and on a different timetable, and will be encouraged accordingly.  It is important that all children at Play and Learn feel encouraged, and that their classroom is a safe place where they belong.

I strive to provide a balance of both a professional childcare environment, and the comforts of being in a home. It is important that the lines of communication are open between parent and caregiver to ensure consistency for your child’s development. Parents will receive daily journals detailing their child’s day, as well as monthly calendars outlining curriculum. In addition, parents are encouraged to email or call if they have questions or concerns. Children have plenty of designated classroom space within my home. There are quality toys and play equipment available to your child that are disinfected continuously throughout the week. Children are valued and treated with care and concern according to their needs.
