West Ridge Early Education Centre promotes the pedagogical reflective approach to how child learn. Using observation techniques, our staff document and reflect on what the school age children are playing with, how they are playing with the provided provocations, what they are saying and who they are playing with. Based on all these observations, the educators build off of these interests to create a larger scale for exploration. The school age children become the educators and instruct our staff through their play on what their interests are.
Before/After School programs, Full Day PD Day/School Holiday programs and Summer Camps. Children are bused to and from Orchard Park, Notre Dome, and Samuel.
Our school age program is licensed for 20 children, ages 4 years – 6 years old. We have two teachers working with the children.
West Ridge Early Education Centre fully supports an inclusive curriculum, with all children being active participants in regards to social interactions and developing the children’s abilities and skills.
