At the core of our philosophy is the image of the child. Everything, from the environment we create to the way we teach and nurture children, is directly influenced by our view of every child as capable, curious, imaginative and full of infinite potential.
We view our learning environment as the third teacher. It is bright, clutter free and rich with engaging learning materials and natural spaces that ignites the curiosity, and inspires the imagination and supports children at every developmental stage.
We implement a curriculum that is child centered and responsive to each child’s individual needs and interest. This allows us to create meaningful learning experiences for every child we care for, which in turn, fosters a life long love of learning.
I have very high standards for daycare, and had expected that I would need to compromise in some way since no daycare would be perfect. However, I was delighted to discover that One Childhood was everything I was hoping for. Monique and Howie are loving and attentive, and they treat the children with affection and respect. They follow the children's interests to develop engaging, interactive, constructive learning activities. The children help tend and harvest an organic garden. I couldn't recommend this daycare more!
Our daughter learned so much with Monique's approach to education, from incredible art projects that taught about light, color, nature, texture, shapes and hand crafting, to seasonal gardening and cooking, to yoga and of course the love of books, the abc's and more. All at the pace the children needed and respecting their differences.
We cannot thank you enough for all you've done. From her first teary day years ago until today, she continues to grow and delight us. Your teaching, guidance, support, creativity, kindness and love have helped our daughter become her very best 4 year old self. You and your family are fantastic role models and it's meant the world to us.
