Ages 15 months – 2 ½ years
For our Toddler Program, our educators heavily focus on children’s five main domains of development. Learning happens from exploring their environment unconsciously. Our educators provide age appropriate materials and activities that are designed to arouse interest and involvement. Classrooms are carefully planned and divided into 6 significant play areas: reading area, sensory area, home area, block area and fine motor area. The areas are adapted to meet children’s interests and provide enriching exploration. “At our innovative Mississauga facility, your toddler will be able to explore and learn to their heart's content.” - The Westpark Early Learning Centre Team, Mississauga.
What is the Early Learning for Every Child Today (ELECT) Document?
Choosing where to send your child to daycare or school is never an easy decision - but it can be significantly beneficial to both you and your child. Whether you are going back to work, studying, or need support with your child, there are a lot of options available.
At Westpark, we operate under the guidelines of the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA). Our focus is to provide a stimulating educational experience promoting each child’s sense of belonging and their connection to the environment. We also encourage a sense of self and personal wellbeing promoting an active and engaged learning environment.
Educators closely follow and refer to the Early Learning for Every Child Today: A Framework for Ontario Early Childhood Settings, also known as the ELECT document. Within our early learning center, children develop and expand on the skills from the Five Domains of Child Development; which are:
Complimentary to our play-based curriculum, we offer the Nippissing Screening tool, which evaluates children based on social milestones at all ages. Along with the Nippissing Development Screen parents are also provided with an Academic Evaluation twice a year. This gives our parents confidence about their child’s progress. Additionally, daily/weekly observations are documented through pictures and reports shared through our parent portal. This gives parents an appreciation of the value in play as they see their child progress.
Our preschoolers and kindergarten children are also given the opportunity to experience the French language. On a weekly basis, educators teach the children basic French, such as the alphabet, numbers and colours.
Other weekly activities include yoga, music and cooking.
We believe that through play and inquiry, children are better able to discover the marvels their surroundings offer. We recognize children’s ability to express themselves and are cognizant that each child is gifted with his/her own personal style and form of expressing themselves.
Westpark is fully licensed and a member of Raising the Bar – a program operated by Investing in Quality for a higher standard of early learning and child care.
