Toddler and Preschool Program

At Junior Academy, we view all children as competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. We engage in child initiated and teacher supported play based learning. 

Junior Academy has an open door policy with Parents. We work to foster a positive relationship with the Parents to build a bridge between home and daycare. Through phone calls, notes, emails, documentation and Parent/Teacher meetings Teachers will keep the Parents abreast of their child’s activities and development.

Junior Academy has set our goals for the children to be consistent with the Ministry of Education pedagogy that reflects the view of children as competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. Our view of the child is as follows:

  • Every child has a sense of belonging when he or she is connected to others and contributes to their world.
  • Every child is developing a sense of self, health, and well-being.
  • Every child is an active and engaged learner who explores the world with body, mind, and senses.
  • Every child is a capable communicator who expresses himself/herself in many ways.

Our Program uses the guidelines of the How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years Document.

Play-based learning

Helps children develop social skills, motivation to learn, and even language and numeracy skills. Taking initiative, focused attention, and curiosity about the world are all a part of play.

Inclusive and positive Environment

We provide a community and program that positively encourages learners to explore and develop at their own pace.
