Crystalridge Learning Centre offers child care in Okotoks for children aged 2 months to 12 years. One of the philosophies we strongly believe in is learning through play and stimulating children’s imaginations through an emergent curriculum. To facilitate this process, we observe and incorporate children’s interests and experiences into their education, and prioritize creativity in each activity.
Our programs differ for children based on developmentally-appropriate practices. Our child care programs are designed to meet the needs of the “whole child,” incorporating art, social engagement, physical activity, intellectual conversations, nutrition and social/emotional support. Through programming based on observations, we are able to provide the children with experiences that cater to their interests, needs and abilities. Every child learns in an environment that is geared specifically to their development and will challenge them in a way that is appropriate to their learning. As every child is an individual and learns differently, we use different methods of educating so that we are inclusive to all children in our care.
