Learn to Play, Play to Learn
We provide a high quality, supportive, child-centered program in a warm, safe and responsive environment.
Toronto Woods Daycare supports the belief that young children learn through play, and that play is an integral part of young children’s lives.
We believe that children should be treated with respect and dignity, to feel safe and secure, to have opportunities for learning through play. Children thrive and learn best when their interests are captured, and as a result learning occurs naturally. We are planning a curriculum that is based on the children’s interests and passion. We call it an emergent curriculum.
Play is an active, child-centered process that supports children’s learning throughout the domains of physical play, social/emotional interaction, creativity, science, math, language and literacy.
We believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially.
Our aim is to provide a program that is play–based and designed to support the care and development of young children. Focus on children’s social, emotional, physical, creative, and cognitive development in a holistic way. Children are actively involved in a variety of play and daily living experiences. Our aims are for children to:
Develop communication skills by providing opportunities for children to listen, talk, draw, and write about events that occur in their lives
Socialize with peers and adults
Manipulate materials as they explore, experiment, problem solve, ask questions
Develop physical and self-help skills
Be independent and self- reliant as they accomplish tasks in their own way, at their own pace
