Welcome to Good Start Daycare
Good Start Daycare philosophy is that each individual brought to the centre must be valued and respected in an atmosphere that enhances self-confidence, self-esteem and respect of all. We believe that the children have “Spice” of life. “Spice” meaning: social, physical, intellectual, creative, and emotional needs. It should be a child-friendly environment where the adults have to adapt to the children environment. Our childcare centre maintains and values diversity and is also committed to the promotion of safe and healthy families and the environment.
Our program is to promote children’s social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional growth and development. By supporting the children’s social, emotional and cognitive development, we are giving the children the head start in developing language skills by responding to children’s communication, asking questions and engaging them in conversations during their daily activities, social skills by giving them the opportunity to play and interact with peers, emotional skills by helping them overcome their frustrations and fears by using positive reinforcement, encouraging self-control and self-respect and respect for others and guiding them in positive and gentle way. Being aware of the ability of the children will help detect a development delay if occurring. It is essential in our centre to ensure that the children get the help and guidance they need to observe, question, explore, experiment in order to develop their thinking ability, language, and listening skills. To meet these needs, we as professionals have to provide the children with age appropriate activities, toys and materials to stimulate their language, listening, problem solve and observational skills such as story time with questions and answers.
