Programs

HPSCCC follows the guidelines of Play and Exploration as set out in the Early Learning Program Guide developed by the Ministry of Education- Early Learning and Child Care. This play based approach to Early Learning focuses on high-quality interactions between the Educators and the children.  It encourages strong relationship building between Educators, the children and family members.

Early Childhood Educators plan a variety of activities and programs based on the children's interests. They work to provide interactive activities that help children develop in all areas, including social, emotional, intellectual, creative, spiritual and physical.   Some activities may include: sensory, creative art, music, dramatic play, fine motor- puzzles, cooking, science, adventurous play, resource people and field trips.  The environments are created to engage and help develop the whole child in a safe, caring and educational atmosphere. When educators view children as competent and capable, the learning program becomes a place of wonder, excitement and joy for both the child and the educator. 

Our centre offers full time, part time or causal care to children 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
