The entire center is supplied with a wide variety of supplies. We have a large storage room for toy rotations and to store materials that children are no longer interested in. We supply craft materials for children.
Staff are given opportunities to go above and beyond with activities by having trust, sharing knowledge, understanding, and giving them the freedom to do experiences along-side the children that will challenge and teach concepts through child led activities.
Classrooms are set up to be natural and calming. Our toned down classrooms allow interests to be added throughout and for staff members to make it reflect the children within the space. Room arrangement and materials in the room are decided by the educators and the children within the space. Natural items and loose parts are evident throughout our classrooms.
Century Daycare and OSC is a small daycare located in Spruce Grove, AB. We are open 6:30am until 6:00pm. Our educators work with ages 0 until 12 in our 5 different classrooms.
At Century Daycare and OSC Program, we aim to provide high quality childcare in safe environment filled creative learning experiences and recreational activities. We believe children should come first and they are therefore the central focus of our childcare program. We focus on having exemplary interactions with children because we hold the opinion that “responsive stable caregiver-child interactions are the single most important element in quality child care.” Our role as caregivers is to listen to and observe children, expand on their individual needs and interests, as well as providing them with developmentally appropriate activities and experiences to help in their growth and discovery. This means that instead of focusing on academics, we allow children to learn through child-directed free play. It is therefore our responsibility to create an atmosphere of love, acceptance, fun, and curiosity where children can explore and develop a positive sense of the world around them. We respect the dignity of each child and emphasize respect of all children, regardless of race, religion, gender, national origin and special needs. – less
