Our Philosophy

Midland Child Care Centre is a non-profit learning centre offering caring support for children ages 18 months to 4 years.

It is our experience that children who succeed at learning gain valuable self-confidence, an important stepping stone to future success, moral development, and respect for others. We structure our programs to ensure that all of our children share in this experience, while also providing each child the opportunity to explore his/her unique interests.

Our activities and experiences are planned in accordance with the ELECT principles. This means that our curriculum is based on our observations of each child’s interests in both structured and unstructured settings.  Following the child’s lead, our teachers identify opportunities to develop enhanced learning activities that support creativity, exploration, and imaginative play. Our goal is to nurture each child’s emotional, social, cognitive, intellectual, creative, and physical skills in a safe, healthy, and happy, learning environment.

Midland Child Care strongly supports inclusion and diversity in the classroom. All children are made to feel they belong in the setting, and have an equal and equitable opportunity to access our programs, and to learn and grow.

Our staff and volunteers are expected to respect all children, their families, staff, and partners, and value ethnic and cultural diversity. It is our mandate to ensure that everyone in the community feels included, and that our centre provides a safe and encouraging learning environment where everyone belongs.
