Preschool Programs in Children’s Centres
In our preschool program, we embrace the emergent curriculum approach to early childhood education. This is a child focused and teacher framed approach to learning. Within a warm, nurturing environment, children participate in positive experiences which are based on their current interest and real life experiences. Our programs are flexible and creative and provide children opportunities for decision making and growth towards independence and responsibility.
In order to accommodate each child’s needs, our home-like environments provide a variety of stimulating and rich learning centres, which include; writing, creative arts, sensory play, discovery, dramatic play, reading, blocks, woodworking and computers.
Educators within our children’s centres are Early Childhood Educators, registered in good standing with the College of Early Childhood Education, and hold a current certification in First Aid and infant and child CPR training, as well as a completed Vulnerable Sector Check.
Preschool programs are offered at all London Children’s Connection Children’s Centres, Monday to Friday from 7:00 am - 5:30 pm.
We request that you visit the centre prior to enrollment in order to meet with the Program Coordinator, review your registration forms, and observe the program. Your child should accompany you to familiarize him or her with the staff and the surroundings.

Programs in Community Home Child Care
Our Community Home Child Care program is licensed by the Ministry of Education and offers nurturing child care in the safe, approved homes of our carefully selected, self-employed, Home Child Care Providers across London and Middlesex County.
Each home child care program is unique, and varies in the activities, menus, and even hours that child care is provided. We can help to connect you with the Provider and program that best suits your needs.
