Philosophy Statement

At Wee Leprechauns Child Care Centre, we create a unique platform where our program follows the needs of all children. This is a art based and child-centred environment where learning opportunities are child-initiated and the needs of the children are at the basis of our programming. 

Throughout the day, the children have access to various art materials and platforms but most importantly we allow them to make a huge art mess!!!! Guess what??? We have days where the children get creative by throwing paint!

 

Diversity and inclusion are very important to both our educators and management team. We want everyone that walks through our doors to feel welcomed and valued. Our educators ensure safety and security as their top priorities.

Philosophy of Education

Our program philosophy are built on three key pillars:

 

LOVE

We believe by teaching each child to love themselves, they will be empowered to love others. We provide children the tools to become independent thinkers and co-creators of the spaces they occupy and valued citizens of society.

 

FAMILY ENGAGEMENT

Family is the cornerstone of a child’s life. Whichever way you define the word family, it is acknowledged in our centre. Families are encouraged to participate in their child’s learning on an ongoing basis. We recognize that family engagement is a key indicator of a child’s success.

 

COLLABORATIVE LEARNING

Learning with others is a fundamental part of our program. We collaborate with educators, supervisors and community members to ensure that there is an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Our programming is infused with an art backdrop and aligns with Ministry of Education documents (i.e. How Does Learning Happen?, ELECT, Kindergarten Curriculum, etc) All staff participates in annual professional development and our supported to attend PD conferences as well.
