How does learning happen?

Program Statement

Welcome to The Apple Tree Preschool & Learning Centre; licensed child care program. Our program statement describes how our programs support and foster early learning.
In the early years, programs are most effective when the content of learning is focused on supporting the development of strategies, dispositions, and skills for lifelong learning through play and inquiry.

Following the framework outlined in “How Does Learning Happen?” Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years (2014) “; and incorporating Early Learning for Every Child Today (ELECT) principles to strengthen our program, The Apple Tree Preschool strives to support children in achieving the following goals and meeting the expectations for programs building on the four foundations for healthy growth and development:

Foundations Goals for Children Expectations for Programs

Every child has a sense of belonging when he/she is connected to others and contributes to his/her world. Cultivate respectful relationships and connections to create a sense of belonging among and between children, adults and the world around them.

Every child is developing a sense of self and health and well-being. Nurture children’s healthy development and support their growing sense of self.

Every child is an active and engaged learner who explores the world with her/his senses, bodies and minds. Provide environments and experiences to engage children in active, creative, and meaningful exploration and learning.

Every child is a capable communicator who is able to express himself/herself in many ways. Foster communication and expression in all forms.

The Apple Tree Preschool has an educational approach that nurtures learning and development in the early years.
