Child Philosophy

Children learn, move, write, communicate and are creative in many different ways. Our educators will encourage children to explore these actions within the context of the natural environment and foster the creation of strong, lasting relationships, self-confidence and curiosity.

Program Philosophy: Nature Smart!

Natural Connections Childcare Centre provides a program that is inspired by the philosophy of Reggio Emilia and that will nurture children's natural curiosity of the world around them. Our educators will lovingly guide children through interest-based, open-ended activities both indoors and out. A significant portion of most days will be spent in carefully supervised natural spaces. We believe in the importance of developing a lasting and life-changing relationship with the natural environment supporting growth in all domains of learning. We continually seek a healthy balance between organized activities, individual needs and the documented sequence of child development as it relates to experience in nature.
