WEST’s CNC (Care for Newcomer Children) offers childcare services to the women who attend programs funded through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
The CNC Centre is staffed with qualified Early Childhood Educators (ECE) that provide a daily program based on emergent curriculum, which features open-ended activities for children 6 months to 5 years old.
A play-based learning approach is incorporated into each classroom to create the best environment for the children to learn and grow. In addition, each classroom consists of age appropriate materials, toys and equipment. The activities are designed to enhance fine-and gross-motor skills, music and movement, social and cognitive skills.
The children enrolled in the CNC Centre, learn new skills and improve their confidence to help them to create healthy relationships with peers. Our programs recognize that activities and materials in the learning environment should reflect the children’s interests, cultural background and experiences.
While attending the CNC centre, the children are able to:
Freely enhance their creative art and sensory skills
Experiment and make scientific observations
Role-play in the dramatic play area and so much more
The daily snacks the children receive is based on Canada’s Food Guide.
