ROC childcare has two parts of program learning curriculum /structure. The Yearly planned program and the Project Approach Learning.
- The planned activity (Yearly Planned Program) will focus on using variety ideas and activities in our lessons, to create a well-rounded curriculum. The use of nine content areas which will benefit children’s learning are as follow: Language, Literature & Numbers Activities (LLN), Culture Activities & Art (CA), Global Learning Activities(GL), Health & Wellness Activities(HW), Environmental Learning Activities(EL), Media & Technology Activities(MT), Social & Emotional Development Activities(SED), STEM activities(STEM), Service Learning & Community Building Activities (SCB)The Project Approach Learning
- The second part of our program curriculum is the project approach learning. The project approach learning is used to help children further in their exploration of topics at hand. A project may be short-term or long-term depending on the level of children's interest. The project approach provides opportunities for children to take agency of their own learning and represent this learning through the construction of personally meaningful artefacts. As young learners take ownership of their learning, they feel increasingly competent and sense their own potential for learning, helping them develop feelings of confidence and self-esteem. The benefits of a project approach are that young learners are directly involved in making decisions about the topic focus and research questions, the processes of investigation and in the selection of the culminating activities. When young learners take an active role in decision-making agency and engagement is promoted. The project approach provides opportunities for children to take lead of their own learning and represent this learning through the construction of personally meaningful interactions with other children, parents, community and staff.
SAMPLE ACTIVITY PLAN
We provide direct rides to school with the Center's transportation for children attending Royal Oak School, William D. Pratt School and Tuscany School. If your child is not attending the above three schools, we might ask you to apply for your child’s school bus transportation services. Then children will be dropped off and picked up from the school bus stops (near the church)
Currently we are accepting children from Brentwood, St. Maria Goretti and W.O. Mitchell.
Any other schools in the area are also welcomed.
We will provide a nutritious afternoon snack every day. Menus will be based on the Canada Food Guide recommendation. However we do not provide meals. Please ensure that your child has had an adequate breakfast prior to arriving at the childcare. Snack menus are rotated weekly with a 4-week menu set. The menu schedule is posted in the main parent board located in the front foyer. Parents may request a copy of the menu at any time.
