Our Approach

The Family Education & Support Centre introduces Under the Tree Childcare Centre. A holistic emergent  learning centre for families with children aged 0-12 years old.  Contact us to schedule a tour, where you can see our  beautiful 3 acre property residing in a former elementary school, complete with a large field, extravagant playground and inside gym. 

 

We are happy to be able to also offer  family support services and outreach programs. Our services include  support systems for families that require assistance in a variety of means from applying for childcare subsidy and government services to parenting and cooking classes. This unique facility is a federally-funded project that is intended to connect families to our ever growing community and all the resources it has to offer.  

 

We believe that childcare is about caring for the entire family, that is why we have created a centre that not only has childcare from children ages 0-12, but also works with our families to support them in raising their family. 

We offer:

 

We value the whole child and will always seek to support, understand

and value the needs and desires of every child who walk through

our doors.

Our Philosophy

 

We encourage:

  • Curiosity

  • Creative play

  • Social/ emotional development

  • Inclusivity

  • We believe in fostering an environment of play, creativity, social emotional development, balanced mental wellness, and exploration.

  • We believe in child led curriculum

  • We believe that our teachers should be active with your child to help ensure they are clearly understanding. 

  • We believe that children reach their full potential when there is full engagement from the child, teacher, parents and the community.

  • We believe that Under the Tree is a place for families to belong, where their opinion on policies, curriculum and development of the centre will be valued and contribute to the growth of Under the Tree.
