Helpful Documents:  

Our programming is guided by How Does Learning Happen? Ontario's Pedagogy for the Early Years Document (2014).

Goderich Municipal Child Care Centre welcomes your child and family to a warm, caring, enthusiastic and respectful atmosphere.  Our Educators provide a quality learning environment for all children with daily opportunities to extend individual learning needs based on their natural curiosity, current interests and real life experiences. We provide our children with many play based, hands-on learning opportunities to keep children involved and creatively thinking.  Active investigation combined with reasonable risk taking opportunities allow children to be curious, explore the environment, and make strong connections to the world around them. This encourages children to build positive relationships, fosters problem solving skills, and increases the ability for positive self-expression with peers.

We promote a diverse and inclusive environment that provides children with the opportunity for personal growth, individual success, and a sense of pride in their accomplishments. There is ongoing communication with the families to establish individual learning goals and provide support for personal development. We also have In-Centre supports from the following Service Agencies to help with specialized programming.
