At Seaforth Co-operative Children’s Centre our goal is to provide a program that embraces our knowledge that children are competent, capable, curious learners and rich in potential.
We offer a program that is consistent with the Ministry of Education’s policies and pedagogy. We refer to the How Does Learning Happen? Pedagogy, The ELECT document, and the Think, Feel, Act articles and videos.
We also follow the Ministry guidelines as set out in the Child Care and Early Years Act to support our programs. We strive to provide quality childcare for children age 0-12 years. Our centre is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are also parent members. We are an incorporated non-profit, co-operative organization. We value active parent participation in all aspects of our centre. Our core values are Play, Programming, Professionalism, and Partnership. We believe in the four foundations of the How Does Learning Happen? Pedagogy: Belonging, Well-being, Engagement, and Expression. Our program statement will reflect how we will embrace the four foundations for learning as well as our own core values to support children and families in our childcare and outreach programs.
The mission of Seaforth Co-operative Children’s Centre is to serve parents through quality childcare in the belief that a good start in the formative years of childhood provides children with a lasting foundation for success throughout their lives.
Our mandate is to use the standards set by the Ministry of Education, the Child Care and Early Years Act, and the Huron County Health Unit for providing optimal childcare for the families of our community.
The mission of the Board of Directors: As the governing body, our purpose is to ensure financial viability of the organization while securing the highest quality professional childcare for the children in our community.
