Blossoming Minds Learning Centre is a fully licensed Childcare Centre that offers an environment inspired by the Reggio approach to early childhood education. We believe in facilitating learning through activities and lessons based on the child's interests, using play based learning. Music is an integral part of every child's day, as is demonstrating respect for self, others, and our environment.
Blossoming Minds Learning Centre is founded by licenced and experienced Early Childhood Educators and Elementary teachers. Our educators have taught in the public school system as well as early learning centres. All of our fully qualified staff are First-Aid and CPR certified, and continually enhance their professional training through ongoing courses and workshops.
At Blossoming Minds, we prepare children for full day kindergarten, and provide them with the solid foundation needed for success. Our programs currently serve children ages 3 months to 10 years of age.
We offer music classes based on the philosophies of Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze Eurhythmics. Musical concepts are learned through singing, chanting, dance, movement, drama and the playing of percussion instruments. Stretching and yoga are incorporated into all programs and transitional periods. We help foster childrens' sense of connection to the Earth through gardening, composting, and outdoor play.
Our completely new facility has been beautifully renovated and designed with the whole child firmly in mind. All our rooms feature elements from the Reggio philosophy including child-size furniture, elements from Nature, natural materials, and developmentally appropriate resources. Our newly constructed outdoor playground allows for all age groups to participate in daily outdoor activities.
