We divide ourselves into four different groups at the Wawota Daycare:
* Infants (aged 6 weeks - 18 months)
* Toddlers (aged 19 months - 2.5 years)
* Preschoolers (aged 2.5 years - 6 years)
* School Aged (aged 7 years - 12 years)
Our staff creates programming for each group that is developmentally appropriate for their age. We spend part of the day with the groups separated in different rooms, focussing on activities that are suitable for each age group. We spent the other part of the day as a mixed age-group where the children play together and learn how to interact with each other.
The Center follows a daily schedule, which allows for the children to get accustomed to how the Center runs, and so that they have a good idea of what comes next each day. This aids with the transition from home to daycare and helps the children feel more comfortable at the Center.
We provide two nutritious snacks and lunch each day. We also offer breakfast to those children that arrive at the Center before 8:00am.
The Wawota Daycare is lucky enough to be located right next to Wawota's Splash Park, so in the summer months we take full advantage of that and spend as much time as we can there with the children!
We also enjoy taking the children for walks around town, to the school gymnasium to play, to the school playground, and to the library! We feel that variety keeps things fun and interesting!
