We use a pedagogical approach to learning. We believe the children to be capable and competent and therefore respect them as individuals and plan the curriculum around their interest. By actively observing children at play, teachers learn about the developmental progress of individual children and what skills and knowledge they are working on. They listen to children's ideas and interests, and connect their curriculum goals with those of the children in responsive and creative ways. Planning emerges from the children's interests and daily life in the program. We use How Does Learning Happen? as a platform for guiding our emergent curriculum.
All CBCC educators are registered members of Ontario's College of Early Childhood Educators (or equivalent) and are committed to providing your child with the tools to discover their world through play, building on their curiosity as the foundation to becoming lifelong learners.

Creative Beginnings Childcare Centre is a licensed by the Ministry of Education as a non-profit charitable organization. We are committed to providing exceptional childcare to the community and the diverse families we serve. The centre operates under a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of parents and other interested community members. Upon registering your child, you become an important member of the centre, not only as an expert in your child’s development, but as a valued participant in volunteer activities, fundraising initiatives, or simply as an advocate in the community for the centre and childcare as a whole.
We provide a vibrant play-based program for children which fosters individualism, creativity, and socialization, and focuses on the Ministry of Education's pedagogical foundation document entitled "How Does Learning Happen?". Our knowledgeable, professional team of teachers support children in a fun, nurturing and safe environment.
One of our key features is the use of documentation. Educators and children create stories together which are posted for parents, including photos, on a regular basis. Documentations helps parents to feel connected to their child's day. It's the next best thing to actually being there! Teachers also create individual child portfolios that are added to on a regular basis. Children can explore their portfolios at any time as they are kept in the classroom. Be sure to check out your child's portfolio today!
