Northlea Community Child Care is committed to providing a quality, nurturing environment that enhances the growth and learning of each child in partnership with the family, the school, and the community.
Effective partnership between parents and educators is the cornerstone of the program. Our program is directed by the philosophy of learning through play. We believe that each child has a unique pattern of interests and skills. We offer a safe, secure, and stimulating environment which responds to the individual needs of each child and family.
The program at NCCC is guided by the document “How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years 2014” together with the regulations in the “Child Care and Early Years Act 2014” (here-after referred to as CCEYA).
These documents guide program development, pedagogy and practice in the child care setting. These documents along with the ELECT – Early Learning for Every Child Today strengthens the quality of our programs and assures high quality experiences that will lead to positive outcomes in relation to children’s learning, development, health, and well-being.
NCCC believes in providing:
Northlea Community Child Care is staffed with qualified teachers who have obtained their Early Childhood Education (ECE) diploma and/or Early Childhood Assistant (ECA) certificate.
All our ECEs are registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators and each staff member is trained in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid. Staff members also attend professional development throughout the year. NCCC also provides field placement for students enrolled in Early Childhood Education at Colleges and Universities.
