Learning and Growing was initially established by a group of 8 parents concerned about the need for Daycare in their community. On December 30, 1985, Learning and Growing Daycare was officially incorporated as a non-profit, government-funded organization. The founding group of parents comprised the original Board of Directors.
The Centre acquired 3,100 square feet of space at 3659 Roblin Boulevard. In 1991, the Daycare expanded its facility to provide Infant Care. The center was licensed for a total of 48 spaces, 4 infant and 44 preschool. A staff of ten Early Childhood educators where employed by the Center.
In the summer of 2006, the Daycare underwent major changes. The staff and children were relocated to a neighborhood school and community club as the entire center underwent a major facelift. Upon completion of the renovation, the Daycare increased to 5000 square feet. The center was then able to increase the number of licensed spaces to 76. Of the 76 newly created spaces, 12 spaces are for infants and 64 are for preschool. We now employ a staff of 17 Early Childhood Educators. With a new state of art facility and top notch programming, Learning & Growing Daycare continues to be a leader in the child care community.
We strive to work in partnership with the family to promote the healthy, optimal development of each child.
We believe that parents play the most important role in their child's life. Daycare is not a replacement for parents but an extension of them, and parents have a right to expect the best of care for their children when they are not with them.
Children learn through hands-on experiences and play situations. We provide children a safe and healthy environment that encourages independent exploration and experimentation within a variety of stimulating learning centers.
As Child Care Professionals, we seek to provide a warm, nurturing environment for all children in our care. We recognize that each child is a unique individual, and we offer first-hand experiences, together with adult guidance, in order that each child be encouraged to develop at his / her own pace.
The social connections which children form throughout the early years are an essential element in the process of learning the skills of cooperation and conflict resolution.
We believe that it is essential for children to be given the opportunity for social interaction that is both respectful and rewarding. Also, the opportunity must be given to practice skills that assist in resolving the conflicts encountered daily.
It is our goal to assist parents in the process of raising independent responsible children.
