Description

Pink Elephant Childcare Society was established in 1979. We offer a safe and stimulating environment for all children we care for, respecting the importance of their uniqueness. We build a community that honours and acknowledges sameness and uniqueness of individual gifts and talents. This inclusive child-centered environment will promote living, learning and cooperation.

Our program recognizes the needs of the child and offers a positive learning environment, which will assist in the natural process of human development to achieve their fullest potential. Children will learn through structured play, designed material and equipment, and a carefully prepared environment. All of this is for the child to see, to do, and learn from an early age.

The OSC children maintain the ethnic program of the Centre by being involved in the cultural activities. Our first priority is excellent childcare; we aim to provide a safe, warm and nurturing environment for the children in our care. “We are a home away from home”. The Centre is open to all children regardless or religion, race, colour or creed.

Program Balance

In order for the Centre to meet the total needs of the child, we provide a balanced program. Our program offers a diverse number of activities designed to promote the overall growth of the individual child.

Traditional Program

Free Play Activity – activities involving running, jumping, swinging, climbing; equipment for larger muscle development; working with puzzles, crayons, building blocks, the play centers, toys, etc.

Creative Activity – activities / themes to promote the child’s cognitive & psychological development – singing, painting, dancing, drama, music, arts and crafts, story time, colouring, etc.

Self-Directed Activity – activities involving water play, sand play, housekeeping, carpentry, nature, and library time, etc.

Directed Play Activity – organized activities designed to promote a specific skill or competence to develop large and/or small motor coordination.

Routine Activity – activities such as washing hands, snack time, eating, dressing, sleeping, washroom procedures.

Group Activity – activities such as circle time, story telling, group projects, sense –training games, teaching sessions, show and tell, Ukrainian dancing, singing, plays, etc.

Gymnasium / Playground – the physical environment of the Centre reflects and reinforces the program objectives; large and small muscle activities which promote a child’s physical development are incorporated through the use of school facilities.

Activities are organized to promote the social, physical, emotional, and intellectual growth of the child and influence the way in which the program is delivered. The staff is aware that an activity is designed to contribute to some aspect of the child’s growth and is flexible and sensitive regarding the child’s involvement in the activity. Co-operation rather than competition is stressed in group work, self-expression rather than conformity in creative activity, and individual problem solving rather than staff teaching in free play activities. The staff is warm, acceptable and supportive in their interaction with the children and their delivery of the program.
