Toddler and Preschool Program

    At Junior Academy, we view the child as competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. We engage in child initiated, Teacher supported play based learning and use the guidelines of the How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years Document


    Junior Academy has an open door policy with Parents. We work to foster a positive relationship with the Parents to build a bridge between home and daycare. Through phone calls, notes, emails, documentation and Parent/Teacher meetings Teachers will keep the Parents abreast of their child’s activities and development.

    Junior Academy has set our goals for the children to be consistent with the Ministry of Education pedagogy that reflects the view of children as competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. Our view of the child is as follows:

    • ▪ Every child has a sense of belonging when he or she is connected to others and contributes to their world.
    • ▪ Every child is developing a sense of self, health, and well-being.
    • ▪ Every child is an active and engaged learner who explores the world with body, mind, and senses.
    • ▪ Every child is a capable communicator who expresses himself/herself in many ways.
