My World of Learning Child Care Association's philosophy is to offer a safe, nurturing learning environment in which each child can prepare for the years ahead. We believe children learn through play. Play-based learning in such areas as active play, language development, socialization is facilitated through teacher-planned and child-initiated age-appropriate activities. Our programs are developed to support emotional, cognitive, social and physical growth.
Through play, we encourage:
- emotional development – self-expression, exploration
- cognitive development – language skills, problem solving abilities
- social development – positive social interaction
- physical development – gross and fine motor activities

The day care accepts children who have portable subsidy seats. We encourage parents to apply to the Department of Community Services for a portable subsidy seat. If families meet the eligibility criteria, the government will assist families with child care expenses. More Information on the subsidy program can be obtained by calling the Subsidy Caseworker at 893-6167.

My World of Learning is licensed to care for 40 children between the ages of 18 months to 5 years. The day care has three classrooms with two teachers in each classroom. There is a Supported Child Care Teacher to provide extra support to the classrooms so all children can participate fully in the daily program.

The caring, knowledgeable staff plans fun activities in the areas of math, art, circle, science, sensory, fine motor and gross motor that promote learning opportunities for the children. The programming promotes the children's growth and development through play and theme-based activities.
Children have an opportunity to play in the spacious classrooms in areas like sand and water play, blocks, housekeeping, library and science. An average of two hours per day of outdoor time is spent in the large playground which features a bike track, large sandbox and playhouse. Field trips are planned based on themes and offer hands-on learning and exposure.
The day care provides a lunch and two snacks per day.
