Goals and Objectives
Upper Canada Child Care is committed to providing quality programs that are consistent with Ministry of Education policies and pedagogy, as outlined in the following documents:
- How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy in the Early Years
- Early Learning for Every Child Today
- Think, Feel, Act: Lessons from Research About Young Children
Through focusing on the four foundations of learning - well-being, engagement, belonging and expression – our programs promote physical, social and emotional health, and foster communities of learners made up of our children, families and educators.
With these priorities in mind, we have defined a set of goals and approaches, in compliance with the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014, that guide our daily practices.
What our principles mean to you
These principles reflect our basic philosophy: A good program will acknowledge the uniqueness of each child. We offer children an environment in which they have the maximum potential to experience secure, stimulating, healthy and enjoyable opportunities for growth.
