Centre Base Program

 

  • 515 Niemi Rd, Lively
  • Accommodates children 12 months to 4 years.
  • Doors are open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.

index.1The daily routine at the Centre varies according to the age group and program each child is involved in.

Generally the days’ activities follow a regular sequence which provides a feeling of security in knowing what to expect and when to expect it.

The children are greeted upon entering the daycare and are then allowed the freedom to explore, and participate in the many changing activities and creative centers.

Every day each group has scheduled outdoor play, circle times, active playtimes in the gym and rest or quiet periods.

Meals and snacks are consistently a variety of fun, tasty and nutritious foods which are anticipated by all the children.

Throughout it all, the Educators are always nearby to lend quiet support, or active encouragement, to tell a story or sing a song, or even just to give a hug.

Childhood Illnesses
One of the realities of raising children is that from time to time childhood illnesses will arise.
In a childcare setting where there are many children together, a cold, the chicken pox or any other contagious condition can spread very quickly.

Our Centers’ priority is to ensure that your children will not be in contact with children who have a contagious disease; therefore it is the agency’s policy to exclude ill children from regular day care activities.

 


As mentioned, our agency is also in a partnership with many of the local schools.
