Our daycare program at Shepherdson Road in New Liskeard offers fully licensed, family-oriented childcare and hire qualified Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECEs) that offer quality childcare with the support of Early Childhood Educator Assistants. This center offers two Family Group Settings, with children from 18 months old to 12 years of age together in groups of up to 15 children.
This family grouping allows children of different ages, whether from the same family, to be in the same group, and in the same play activity room. Through intergenerational grouping, the older children will work with the younger, sharing their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. This develops a strong sense of autonomy within the children and is the traditional way of Indigenous people.
Through on-the-land learning, the children explore, connect and bond with the natural environment around them with guidance from our Wisdom Keepers and educators. The land becomes the third teacher and the indoors become an extension of our outdoor adventures. This principle helps children to grow their connection to the natural world and the beings of creation while in an environment that fosters a rich dynamic and endless opportunity.
