Language and Early Literacy Experiences
Language and Literacy is a strong component to our Programs. Along with daily reading, storytelling, letter and word recognition. Every child has an opportunity to engage in age appropriate and fun learning opportunities that provide the building blocks for children to become passionate learners
Our programs provide children with the opportunity to explore numbers, patterns, shape and space by working with appropriate materials and tools.
Science and Nature
Nature and science are an integral part of Kids@ CP classrooms and offer hands-on learning. The centres in each classroom offer a variety of science tools, materials and collections for children to explore and investigate. The materials chosen support science concepts based upon children’s interests.
Kids@ CP encourages children to understand and be involved in the broader community. Our program includes various ethnic and cultural activities. Pictures, manipulative toys, books, dolls, dress up clothes and music are incorporated to develop an awareness of the variety of cultures.
Social Emotional Development
Promoting the social-emotional literacy of the children – teaching them skills to become more interceptive and mindful of their emotions and how to mediate them.
Music and Movement
music is an important and fun addition to children’s day. As children move and sing, more oxygen is delivered to the brain through deeper breathing. Our educators incorporate various activities in their programming that includes singing and moving along to the music. Music enhances mood, memory and attention.
dramatic play contributes to children’s emotional, cognitive, social and physical development. It fosters language and literacy skills by incorporating rich vocabulary and opportunities to make authentic the use of new words through enacted play.
Junior Leadership Program
Kids@ CP educators take pride in providing children with the opportunity to explore their interests and build their leadership among their peers. The most effective way to do this is by allowing them to participate in leadership opportunities within their own programs.
Our programs encourage children to explore and express their thoughts and feelings through visual arts, music, drama and movement.
To ensure children’s physical growth and health, we strive to include a multitude of physical activity in our programs. Music and fitness (dance and yoga) programs are provided at the centres. These are inclusive programs facilitated through your regular parent fees. The programs are taught by professional instructors that have been trained in the various disciplines.
Kids@ Churchill Park is a non-profit Calgary child care and family support agency providing quality child care and early learning opportunities to children of Calgary families. We have been both pioneers and leaders in this field for 50 years.
