Cognitive interaction is the foundation of all SCC programs and services. This approach allows children to take an active part in their learning and development.
We believe active learning during play gives children opportunities to make choices within a safe and nurturing environment. SCC staff and program leaders make an effort to complement the learning opportunities children also have at home. We value the partnership and shared interest with parents/guardians to advance their child’s development. Through age appropriate programming and activities the SCC staff and program leaders strive to enhance learning in the areas of:
social and emotional
cognitive and fine motor
learning and early reading readiness
creative - sensory and gross motor
“It is only with the heart that one may see rightly, what is essential to the eye.” Antoine de Saint Exupery, The Little Prince
At SCC, we believe children are competent, capable, curious and rich in potential.
We incorporate Ontario’s teaching practices for the early years - How Does Learning Happen (the following is directly quoted):
Belonging - Every child has a sense of belonging when he or she is connected to other and contribute to their world.
Well-being - Every child is developing a sense of self, health, and well-being.
Engagement - Every child is an active and engaged learner who explores the world with body, mind, and senses.
Expression - Every child is a capable communicator who expresses himself or herself in many ways.
