Daycare Program at Halfmoon Bay Childcare Centre

The Daily Program at Halfmoon Bay Daycare

This program helps prepare the children for the upcoming Kindergarten environment. Circle time, small group activities, free play, creative art experiences and baking are all included in this program.

At Halfmoon Bay Childcare Centre we provide a play-based program for 3 -5 year old children (30 month old children can attend when space is available). A teacher-child ratio of 1 to 8 or less is maintained. Class sizes are limited to 16 in order to provide high quality care.

Our daily program follows a basic routine that offers both structured and unstructured activities throughout the day. The program is kept flexible enough to meet the needs of the individual as well as the group. We offer a wide variety of creative learning experiences in both inside and outside classroom settings based on the interests of the group in our centre. Some of the areas of exploration include nature, music, story telling and writing, movement, construction, science, puzzles and logic, cooking, construction and dramatic play.

We are outside exploring and participating in free and organized physical activity for at least 2 hours a day. Please make sure that your child has weather appropriate shoes/boots and clothing. In addition to what your child needs to bring daily, during the warmer months please also send a sunhat, bathing suit, towel, sunscreen, and life jacket if they have one.
