Five Peas in a Pod Child Care provides a safe, nurturing environment that fosters independence and positive attitude toward life-long learning. We believe that children are competent, capable, curious and rich in potential, each has a sense of belonging to others and their world. We support positive and responsive interactions among the children, parents, child care providers, staff and the community.
The Child Care’s daily activities and experiences promote growth and development of the whole child in cognitive, social, emotional and physical areas building a strong sense of self. Toddler and preschool aged children are said to have an absorbent mind, that is they are primed and ready to benefit from learning experiences.
We encourage exploration, play and inquiry, with child-initiated and adult-supported experiences. We plan for and create a positive learning environment. We respect and encourage diversity, equity and inclusion and we pride ourselves in having knowledgeable, responsive and reflective educators.
