Our classroom spaces are decorated and kept neatly organized so that children see the care and preparation for their arrival each day. Beauty surrounds them, with multiple distinct activity centres at their ready access. Many objects are handcrafted from natural items, and many originate from or reflect a variety of cultures. Colours are natural hues rather than those that are typical of candy.
The important features of the classroom for the children are the activity areas. Children have ready access to materials for drawing, painting, crafting, modeling, dress-up role playing, as well as access to a play kitchen, a two-level play structure, sand and water tables, games, books, musical instruments, blocks and trains and a range of other toys. Each toy area is planned to allow for a number of children to play together in a harmonious way and many can be expanded to accommodate more children.
The caregivers keep a seasonal table with items from nature representing the world of nature. We also have plants and a fish tank in the classroom.
The classroom is further personalized with artwork done by the children or the caregivers themselves.
It is best to see the environment at the centre for yourself!
