Smuyuq’wa’ Lelum Philosophy
Smuyuq’wa’ Lelum ECDC is a positive introduction to the school experience. We strive to provide a safe, caring, and inviting environment to enhance positive social and emotional development and instill a sense of pride, confidence and desire to learn within children.
At Smuyuq’wa’ Lelum we encourage cultural diversity and acceptance of all ethnicities as a means of bridging the gaps within our communities. This will provide children with a positive sense of themselves and to build knowledge of their culture.
Infant and Toddler Program (6 months – 30 months)
Infants enrolled in the centre adhere to their own individual schedules throughout the day. Staff plan each child’s day according to their needs.
Toddlers are provided with the opportunity to gain a sense of mastery over their environment through exploration and play. Creativity and freedom of choice are encouraged as toddlers assert their independence. Feeding, diapering and napping are each an integral part of the daily curriculum.
Day Care Program (30 months – 6 years old)
Through weekly themes, the children learn new concepts, allowing them to extend their play and to share individual interests and ideas. Emphasis is placed on socialization skills as children learn to play creatively and cooperatively. We meet the needs of both typically and children who require extra support, such as language delay.
Preschool Program (3-5 years old)
Qualified staff provide a culturally enriched, literacy, play based preschool program. We provide a fun learning environment filled with emerging kindergarten readiness skills. Learning is supported through enjoyable activities that stimulate the child’s growth and development.
