Infants (3 months to 18 months):
At Airdrie Daycare, we try to work with families to ensure that the transition for you baby from home care to daycare is as smooth as possible. Before your child’s first day, we offer 1 or 2 trial days where either mother or father can bring their baby and spend a couple of hours in our infant room to get acclimatized and get an idea of what to expect. We try to create a schedule that is right for your child and every day a daily report (Baby Babbler) is sent home which has a summary of how your baby’s day went. The daycare director will update you by an email for the first couple of weeks.
Toddlers (19 months to 3 years):
Our Toddler Room staff is focused to promote you toddler’s development in language, fine and gross motor and social skills. Also, we start toilet training in this room so that they are ready before they are moved to the Star Room (3+years to 4.5 years). On request a daily report can be given for your child. Our in house preschool program is introduced at the age of 2.5 years. A typical day may include music, indoor and outdoor play, sign language, physical training, yoga, pre-literacy and word development through listening, reading, speaking and open ended art.
Stars ( 3 years to 4.5 years):
Once children are 3 years of age and potty trained we transition them to this room. Your child will enjoy longer circle times and lots of centres and activities based on both the children’s interests and the In-House Star Brite preschool Program. Children will be working on letter, number and name recognition. They will be learning how to use scissors and how to begin writing their own name. This age group loves to run and jump and be active! They play outside 2 times per day and have lots of gross motor activities each day. Daily Calenders are one of their favorite circle time activity.
Butterflies (4.5 years to Kindergatern):
This room is working on school readiness. Children are cutting independently and writing their own names on their crafts. Children also learn their full names and begin to work at memorizing the phone number and address through fun songs and activities. As children in this room become more independent they love to be involved in the planning for their upcoming themes and learning centres. There will be “children’s pick” activities on a regular basis in this room! Children will also have the opportunity to be the teacher’s helper and run things like circle time and calendar. Our In-House preschool Starbrite Program continues in this room and prepares children for Kindergarten.
Before and After School (Grade 1 to Grade 6):
Our before and after school care children help a great deal with the programming for the room. They with brainstorm with the staff and come up with themes that they wish to learn about. Children will lead circle times in this room and they will take turns reading to the rest of the group. When these children are in attendance for summer care they will enjoy some fun filled field trips, which they have also helped to plan and some special guest visitors as well!
Nutrition & Meals:
We provide snacks and lunches based on the Canada Food Guide. Your child will receive healthy and nutritious snacks and lunches every day – made fresh in our kitchen! We are a nut-free facility. Children are provided with different options considering allergies and cultural/religious preferences. The menus are interchangeable when required to make them a part of some special events or occasions. Parents can let us know if they do not want their child to eat something specific in our menus.
