Early Learning Centre
Licensed child care facility under the University of Toronto
The Early Learning Centre's program philosophy is inclusive, bias-free and based on the concept of learning through play and modeling. We recognize that children learn through active involvement.
Learning activities are designed to stimulate creativity, individual growth, development of motor skills, listening/communication skills, cognitive skills, social/emotional skills, and environmental awareness. Both indoor and outdoor activities consider the children’s individual needs and capabilities. We provide an environment that encourages manipulation and exploration of concrete materials, allowing the child to understand the world.
