________________________________________________________
Little Giants has over 9 years of experience in child care. We have recently grown into a centre with the capacity to care for 15 toddlers and 45 preschoolers. We also offer part time preschool programs from 8am to noon and 1pm to 5pm to meet the needs and demands of families within the community and city. We are located at the corner of Don Mills and Sheppard, mins from 401 and 404 and Don Mills subway station.

Our mission is to support families by providing a safe, healthy, stimulating, nurturing as well as an inclusive and diverse environment for children while meeting the individual needs and respecting individualities. Our vision is to equip children with strong moral values and characters who are able to practice self-reflection and resilience to become leaders of their generation, create a positive impact within their families and communities, and make the world a better place – no matter how young.

Our team of teachers are highly qualify Early Childhood Educators (ECE, ECA or teachers in related fields) and have completed our First Aid (Level C+AED) certificate, medical and police background checked. Understanding early childhood sets the foundation for later years, we are committed to the well-being of every child in our care. Our programs follow a proven successful play-based philosophy and are carefully planned to support each child’s interests and developmental needs. We are also inline with Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Year: How Does Learning Happen? And Early Learning For Every Child Today.

Hours of Operation:
Our door opens from 7:30 am to 6 pm. Monday to Friday.
Sat childminding also available upon request.

Meals:
We serve breakfast, lunch, and 3 snacks (following the Canadian Food Guide) throughout the entire day. Parents are to provide food for the infant or toddler that are still on blended or strained food and/or formula or breast milk.

Routine:
Our daily routine is structured with some flexibility
Morning: breakfast is served before 9am; activities/play/learning opportunities (both outdoor and indoor) till noon; lunch is served at 11:30am.

Afternoon: rest from 12:30-2:30pm (quiet activities for children who do not require rest); afternoon snack 2:30-3:00pm; activities/play/learning opportunities (both outdoor and indoor) till 5pm; quiet individual or group activities till pick up.

In respect to individuality, our goals and expectation is different from child to child. We never set a limit on a child but rather follow their lead. We partner with parents and use Nipissing screening to asses each child’s development to ensure milestones are reached. Children over 2.5 years old are expected to participate in age appropriate academic studies for approximately 15-20 minutes daily. Younger children are encouraged to participate in table activities to build their concentration skills and develop habit to sit quietly at the table, listen and follow simple directions. Learning opportunities are scheduled and implemented throughout the day according to the children's current interest. Daily reports are sent to all parents via email from HiMama.

Philosophy & Behaviour Management:
In our centre, we follow the emergent philosophy which values the individuality of each child. We do daily observations and implement activities following their interests. Our goal is to build resilience in children by developing their self-help skills, self-regulation, self-formation, and problem-solving skills. This being said, we are also academically focused.

We use positive guidance with the children, which includes positive reinforcement, visualization, communication and utilizing different tools to help children understand why and what we expect from them. 'Time away' is used for children with inappropriate behaviour to calm down (self-regulate), be away from the group and return to the group at their own timing. We use conflict resolution techniques to resolve conflicts between two or more children and 'I' messages when dealing with one child.

What we expect from parents:
Open communication - so we can work together as a team so we can have a better insight on the children's interests and needs to help children reach their next developmental stage on areas such as, self help skills, socio-emotional, language, and motor skills. We would also like parents to assist us in assess the child using tools developed by health and educational professionals (Nipissing Screening).

Please contact us for a visit or for more information. We love to hear from you!
