Learning Should Always Be Fun

Our Classrooms

Como Childcare

Nursery: 3 Months to 2 Years

Our nursery room is designed for babies to move, explore and discover.  Natural lighting, thoughtfully displayed materials, and interesting manipulatives invite curiosity while promoting a calm ambiance.  We are sensitive to your baby’s individual needs and do everything possible to re-create their daily routines for a happy, healthy baby.

We cater to the changing nutritional needs of your child, with fresh home-cooked meals prepared daily by our on-site cook. Our meals are prepared in a commercial kitchen, with stringent hygiene standards and a variety of healthy foods that give your child the nutrients they need to learn and grow.

Our caring educators become a familiar face who help your child start on their inquiry-based learning journey, even from this young age.  We have created natural, sensory rich play spaces with natural materials, hammocks, water play and garden for this young age.  Activities are designed to develop their physical strength, hand eye co-ordination, cognitive and social skills.

As your child continues growing and learning they can start visiting the Pre-Kinder space throughout their day. Lots of little visits helps to foster their sense of being and belonging.

Toddler: 2 to 3 Years

We strive to create an environment filled with natural light, order and beauty to inspire our children.  Educators facilitate an atmosphere where toddlers are treated as capable individuals, whose opinions, actions, and thoughts are respected and valued.

The Reggio Emilia-Inspired project work facilitates curiosity, investigation, and discovery for each child. Educators take physical and verbal cues from toddlers to develop “real world” projects, allowing children to explore their surroundings in a meaningful way. Keen observation of the toddler’s responses is important so that educators can flexibly reorganize the curriculum to promote the interests of the children.  Children are exposed to emergent literacy, music, art, dramatic play, sensory, motor-development, science, nature, and pre-math experiences on a regular basis through project work. Educational experiences are designed to be age-appropriate and personally challenging, and the learning process is more valued than the finished product.

Pre-kinder & Kinder: 3 to 5 Years

We employ a Reggio-inspired, project-based approach to early childhood education. With supportive educators close at hand, there are lots of opportunities for children to work together to build their own and each other’s knowledge and skills.

Educators deliver an “emergent curriculum,” predicated on the emerging interests, ideas, and questions of the children. Project work provides ample opportunity for discussion, decision-making, choices, cooperation, and evaluation during an investigation. Projects can last days, weeks, or even months based on the interests and enthusiasm of the children. Through these projects, educators routinely plan and deliver a wide variety of educational experiences, which incorporate emergent literacy, music, art, dramatic play, motor development, math, nature, and science.
