Extending on the children’s interests and ensuring each child feels included in the programs and overall feel of the room is our passion and what we strive to accomplish each day. As management it is my passion to provide strong communication to families, to ensure they know they are just as much a part of our centre as their children. We value all input and appreciate any comments made regarding our practices.
