Mission & Values

Mission & Values

Children, Naturally Early Learning and Child Care is a licenced program based on the belief that children learn, grow, and develop best through play, exploration and discovery in a warm, comfortable, home like setting.

 Philosophy

Quality care is the right of every child. Love, respect and concern are integral elements of this. Children should have first-hand experiences that foster growth and development in all areas -physical, social, emotional, intellectual and language skills.

They should be allowed to exercise their independence through exploration in a safe and stimulating environment. Development of creativity, self-confidence and a positive self-concept should be nurtured in children; as well as respect for others and the environment.

Staff possessing a warm and loving personality, must be knowledgeable of child development to be able to create a safe, positive, home-like learning environment. Through numerous experiences with children, staff becomes sensitive to the needs of the individual child. The ability to work well with others is important to the staff as a whole.
