High Park Early learning centre is an all inclusive, licensed, not for profit childcare centre. We welcome and support children from all families and we facilitate an empathetic and nurturing environment to give every possible opportunity to the children to keep their unique identity and develop to their fullest potential.
We believe in and promote both child-initiated and adult-supported experiences and we facilitate this by following the lead of the children, providing meaningful opportunities and materials the children are interested in. Families are invited to participate in our program, share their ideas and have input on their children’s interests. Staff and families work together to create a secure, loving and happy environment for the child.
We provide opportunities for children to be physically active and to explore with their body, mind and senses. Our Centre which is in close proximity to High Park, as well as it’s well-equipped playground that is surrounded by trees and nature that provides great opportunities for outdoor active play (2 hours daily), as well as for quiet reflection.
