Teachers provide protection, security, stimulation, support, limits, and affection in addition to being play partners and co-learners. Each child is viewed as competent, capable, curious and rich in potential and is respected as an individual within a child-initiated and adult-supported program which fosters their social, emotional, physical, creative and cognitive development in a holistic way. Our classrooms are bursting with a variety of exciting toys and material for the children to explore and play with.

OUR

Classroom Facilities

At Active Kidz, children are given the opportunity to explore the environment (the third teacher) and materials and participate in a variety of open-ended activities. Experiences are carefully planned through observations and implemented in an open-classroom setting where each child’s learning and development is supported.

Children are free to choose from age-appropriate activities including art and sensory, music and movement, language development, pre-math and math skills, science/discovery  and nature, and dramatic play. Children develop a sense of belonging, self-esteem, independence and problem-solving skills as they make choices and assist in planning the environment and the activities.

OUR

Teachers

Education

Taking knowledge of child development, knowledge of how children learn and a well-grounded understanding of children’s play, our early educators construct a living curriculum that truly reflects the interests and needs of the children in their care.

Development

Our play based program is intended to identify what children are expected to learn and be able to do in all developmental areas. The curriculum is designed to help our children achieve their individual potential and create a positive future for themselves, their families and their communities.

Activities

The curriculum in our high quality program is sensitive to the needs, interests and background experiences of the children. It integrates all content areas to provide a solid foundation for learning in language, literacy, math, science, social studies, health, art, music and movement. The program at Active Kidz responds to the nature of the learner, rather than trying to “fit” the children to the curriculum.

Friendship

Our primary goal is for children to feel safe and secure by building positive and responsive relationships among children, parents and educators. Prior to being independent, a child must know that he or she can depend on adults and a predictable environment. Children are treated with respect and kindness and in turn are encouraged to interact and communicate in a positive manner. We recognize that children develop at different rates and have different interests. Small group sizes and appropriate teacher-child ratios allow for meeting the individual needs of each child.
