Welcome to Glenashton

Glenashton Daycare Centre strives to meet each child’s individual needs (social, emotional, physical and intellectual), while they play and learn in a loving and nurturing environment. It is a model centre of excellence in early care and education.

Using the Emergent Curriculum model our educators plan based on your child’s developmental needs and interests. Our classrooms have been designed to allow your child to engage in self-driven learning and discovery. Our Registered Early Childhood Educators work closely with families to ensure high quality care.  Our daily schedules consist of a balance of activities: individual, quiet, small and large group

Teaching children about health bodies, our menu meet the standards set out by Ministry of Health and are prepared in-house by our certified cook. Our menus consist of three snacks and a hot lunch.

Our specially designed French program allows our preschoolers/JKs to develop age-appropriate French skills through fun and interactive activities.

Who Is Glenashton

Our Company Mission
Our mission is to provide a safe, inclusive and developmentally appropriate environment for our children. The aim of Glenashton Daycare Centre is to have children leave us happy, confident and life-long learners.
The Glenashton Philosophy
Right from the beginning, the emergent curriculum of Early Childhood Education has allowed us to meet the social, emotional, creative and physical needs of our children, within an environment that fosters active learning, autonomy and a sense of belonging.

Our Philosophy is based on the belief that an optimum early childcare and education center must support positive relations between families, children and staff. Through our inclusive learning environment, positive interactions, and child-directed activities each child’s developmental needs are met. The areas of development in which we will work to nurture are: intellectual, social-emotional, cognitive and physical through age appropriate and interest driven programming.

“No dream is ever too small; No dream is ever too big”

Guiding Principles
To help lay the foundation to lifelong learners, Glenashton Daycare Centre follows these guiding principles:

1. Learning should be exciting, an adventure where young curious minds are able to explore his/her interest and expand on then.

2. Creating activities and classroom settings, which make learning personal. This inclusive environment allows children to feel empowered over their own learning goals.

3. Building strong bonds between parents and caregivers to work as a team to address the unique needs of our child.
