Little Treasures’ has been operating for over 9 years in the Calgary area. Our Airdrie location cares for children aged 6 weeks to 12 years old. We believe that our services have a tremendous impact on the lives of the families we serve. Our educators have a great responsibility to provide a service that offers the most caring, nurturing, educational, and fun atmosphere possible while maintaining a safe, respectful, and disciplined environment.
We believe that the centre is an extension of the family and therefore we wish to work closely with the parents/guardians by means of discussions, meetings, and other communicative ways to promote positive relationships and development for both the child and parent/guardian.
Our goal is to stimulate the children with play and social interactions that contribute to their emotional, physical, social, and intellectual development. As well as encourage the creativity within each child. Our educators accomplish this by maintaining a 50% structured and 50% unstructured program that takes into account the different development, multiculturalism, abilities and needs of each child which enables us to encourage, enhance, guide, and address them positively and consistently. Little Treasures’ overall objective is to promote optimal development by allowing for equal opportunity for open child choice and educator directed activities where children are able to try new activities that they wouldn’t otherwise try on their own.
