Our Program Playcare Early Learning Centre Inc. offers a program that is consistent with The Ministry of Education policies, pedagogy and curriculum. Some of the Ministry documents that we use to enhance our program are: - How does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years Ontario Early Years Framework - Ontario Early Learning Framework - Think, Feel, and Act: Lessons from research about Young Children - Early Learning for Every Child Today Playcare Early Learning Centre Inc. uses the Emergent Curriculum Approach, which emphasizes active learning and engagement. We know that children learn best when they are interested in learning therefore by teachers offering opportunities for engagement, children can be active contributors to their learning. Playcare recognizes that learning happens when a child is viewed as competent, capable of complex thinking, curious and rich in potential. Children in our Centre should feel a sense of belonging and be an active contributor to his/her own learning. Every child is unique in his/her abilities and they deserve a place to explore, be encouraged and develop in their own way. At Playcare we provide an environment that fosters curiosity, encourages children to ask questions and is filled with play based learning materials. We believe that children deserve to be in a safe, caring and supportive environment in order to reach their maximum potential. Playcare understands that in order for a child to be successful, families, teachers and children must all work together to build a rich environment for learning with open and honest communication. Pedagogy is “the understanding of how learning takes place and the philosophy and practice that support that understanding of learning”
