Welcome to Riverview Ashland
Our philosophy here at Riverview Ashland Child Care Centre Inc. , is that children are active, experiential learners. We strive to create an environment where children can explore and discover independently, fostered by the guidance of trained Early Childhood Educators and Child Care Assistants. We want our children to feel like this is their home away from home and have designed our Centre to reflect that comfort.
Our programs and activities are planned to promote growth of the whole child, physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually. Each child is a unique individual with the right to be loved and respected in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. This Centre encourages respect for self and others, independence, problem solving, creativity, positive self esteem and cooperation.
Parents/Guardians are the primary caregivers and play the most important role in the child's life. It is therefore essential for a positive partnership to develop between our Early Childhood Educators and the families at our Centre. Daily communication from both sides is essential. We strive to develop a mutual respect and trust between the families and our Early Childhood Educators and Child Care Assistants.
Riverview is a close knit community with much to offer. We know the importance of community partnerships and maintain our positive relationships with the local schools, community club, local businesses, Riverview Health Centre and our neighbors. We incorporate our communities resources into our programming to benefit the children at our Centre. The children learn to respect their community for all it has to offer and in return we learn what we can provide to our community.
