"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
Daycare development goals are:


a)            To provide quality care for the children attending the Centre & to try and meet their development needs.


b)            To assist families in making informed choices concerning parenting and related issues.


        The specific objectives focusing on providing care for children are as follows:


1)            To help each child develop positive self-esteem, that will help them throughout life.


2)            To encourage each child’s use of language so that talking and listening are viewed as positive.


3)            To promote the development of gross and fine motor skills.


4)            To lay the foundation of appropriate social interactions and relationships.


5)            To encourage the development of a healthy lifestyle, this includes positive eating habits.

Toddlers (12-35 months)


Development: To promote and foster skills (i.e. sharing, toilet-training, toddler manners). Encourage both fine and gross motor skills, encourage vocabulary.

Pre-Schoolers and Kindergartners


Encourage positive interaction with peers, communication and listening skills with children to help with problem solving, further development of fine and gross motor skills, appropriate response to anger and frustration (i.e. verbal responses rather than physical outbursts), and demonstrate the importance of personal hygiene.
