About Our Programs
Caledon East Children's Place offers programs for Toddler, Preschool and School Age children
Toddler ( Toddler 18 – 30 months of age)
Caledon East Children’s Place employs the HighScope Educational Approach for toddlers (18 – 30 months), fostering active participatory learning through exploration and play. This approach emphasizes close relationships with educators, collaborates with parents for smooth transitions, and maintains a safe, flexible, and sensory-rich environment that caters to individual developmental needs.
Preschool (30 months - 5 years of age)
In the preschool room, children experience a full day of activities including outdoor play, meals, and rest, guided by primary teachers who tailor the environment to suit their needs and interests. The curriculum incorporates small group learning in language, math, science, art, and social studies, while daily community-building gatherings and planned sessions like MESSAGE BOARD and LARGE GROUP enhance their physical, social, and emotional development through discussions, music, stories, and active play.
The program is based on the interests of the children and is a continuation of the Preschool program. The children continue to benefit from the PLAN-DO-REVIEW process, small and large group time, as well as outdoor time. Opportunities are made available for the children to build upon skills in mathematics, language, literacy and communication, science and technology, creative arts and social studies.
CECP subscribes to HiMama, this app allows families to receive personal updates about their child’s day (how much they had to eat, when they slept, etc.) as well as photos of the experiences that they have had throughout the day.
