Tender Years Child Care- a home away from home, where learning happens.
Our programs are built to take your child on a journey to explore, provoke, discover and grow. We design our programs to cultivate an environment where dreams are limitless and where children recognize that anything is possible.
Through our Emergent Curriculum, (which is centered around the interests of the children) we aim to connect with the four foundations of “How Does Learning Happen” – Engagement, Belonging, Well-Being and Expression. Our educators ensure all the children in our care are provided with an environment which stimulates peaks their interests and invites them to explore a healthy state of emotional well-being. The children are educated to express themselves through a variety of communication methods in-keeping with values of belonging and engagement.We encourage learning through the exploration of the natural environment, on our playgrounds and indoors.
At TYCC our educators learn alongside the children as co-learners therefore, your child is viewed as being rich in potential and competent. Learning opportunities will be provided throughout the day, which will expand on the children’s natural curiosity where they are able to realize their potential.
At TYCC, we understand that children learn in different ways, therefore we provide developmentally age appropriate child-specific learning experiences. Activities and learning will be implemented in a manner that facilitates exploration and inquiry through a wide range of kin-esthetic learning experiences.
We encourage our families to join us on this journey of discovery!
The family of teachers and educators at Tender Years are well equipped to assist on the journey!
