Family Involvement

We maintain an open door policy and happily invite parents to visit during operational hours to observe both the Program and your child(ren)’s interaction with others. Management and staff encourage your involvement in our program and are open to positive feedback to enhance our services. In working together, we believe that a child’s time at the centre will be much more rewarding.

Learning Through Play

What it is

It is recognizing that children learn more when they are engaged in play and that play develops a child’s creativity and problem-solving skills. Play is a healthy part of childhood and not only does it prepare children for learning in school, it promotes strength, coordination and brain development. With this, self-esteem and social skills are built and this aids in the development of friendships. Because of the importance of play for children, it is recognized as a Right of Children by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Play is how children experience their world and bring meaning to it. It models the social framework that builds relationships for life and kindles imagination. Play gives children the chance, in a world where so many carry heavy burdens, to simply be children. It is through play that children learn best.

How we Encourage Play

We provide children with the support, space and time to develop and create their play. The Canadian Child Care Federation suggests that as adults, we must take the time to observe, consult, plan and participate in play, as well as be aware of the potential for learning that play offers.

Types of Play

Enoch Day Care Centre recognizes the different types of play suggested by the Canadian Child Care Federation and incorporates it into our program. The following is only a few types of play you’ll find at our centre:

  1. Creative: to explore and use their bodies and materials to make and do things.
  2. Language: by involving children to play with sounds and words.
  3. Physical: to develop, practise and refine bodily movements.
  4. Exploratory: practice their physical skills and senses to experience the world around them

Constructive: the use of materials to build and create anything with the use of natural or manufactured materials.
