Early Childhood Education consists of activities and / or experiences that are designed to effect developmental changes in children prior to their entry into elementary school. Most children benefit from a well-organized and responsive early years program. Rocket Academy & Early Learning Centre offers a learning environment that is in line with the Ministry of Education policies, pedagogy and curriculum. The following are a list of Ministry documents we reference in our programs:
Rocket Academy ELC also uses the Emergent Curriculum as a way of planning activities that are based on the children’s interest and passion at a certain point in time. Children thrive and learn best when their interests are captured. Children make their own choices about materials and activities during program time. As they pursue these choices they explore, ask questions, develop problem solving skills, interact with peers, educators, students on placements and other adults.
Children are competent, capable, curious and Rich in potential.
At Rocket Academy ELC we recognize that each child is unique and they bring their own set of skills and strategies to our program. We ensure each child is encouraged and given the opportunities to explore their surroundings while feeling safe and secure. We want your child to be comfortable in their surroundings; where they feel at home.
We understand that every child learns differently and develops at their own pace. We also recognize the vital role families play in ensuring the health and well-being of children and family members of all ages. As professionals we acknowledge emotional, social, and developmental supports are integral components of a child’s growth and development. We respect each child and their family’s innate strengths and view the child care experience as an opportunity to build on these strengths while supporting families with their care giving and decision-making process.
Our goals for children are consistent with the Ministry of Education pedagogy and include the following:
When the children leave our program at the end of the day, they feel proud of what they have accomplished and learned.
