OUR PHILOSOPHY

Grand Avenue Children’s Centre understands that the early years set the foundation for establishing and nurturing the health, safety and well-being of the children in our program. We are committed to providing the highest standards of care for children, family and the community. To this end, our centre uses "How Does Learning Happen? Ontario Pedagogy for the Early Years" (2014) to inform and shape our program, to strengthen the service we deliver and to bring out the best in our children, families and educators.

Centre Goals and Core Values:

  • Every child has a sense of belonging when he or she is connected to others and contributes to their world.

  • Every child is developing a sense of self, health and well-being.

  • Every child is an active and engaged learner who explores the world with body, mind and senses.

  • Every child is a capable communicator who expresses him or herself in many ways.
