Licensed Child Care Centres
Macaulay child care centres make a difference in children’s lives because
We offer stimulating, high quality care and education to children 18 months to 10 years. Qualified staff members encourage children to develop problem-solving skills, creativity, a sense of responsibility, independence and a positive sense of self worth. Our centres offer stimulating play activities that are organized into interest areas such as blocks, art activities, sand-and-water area, and outdoor play. Consistent daily routines help children feel safe and secure and include opportunities for them to plan their own activities.
We incorporate the well-researched High/Scope approach in all our activities to teach children to make choices as they learn and to follow through on their plans and decisions. We use the Second Step anti-bullying program to build self-esteem and prepare children to regulate their emotions, solves problems and resolve conflicts.
Our programs meet and exceed all requirements of the Day Nurseries Act and the City of Toronto Operating Criteria.
