Early Foundations provides an evidence-based model of both Developmental and Kindergarten Program Statement-based curriculum for daycare children while providing opportunities for an Emergent approach to learning as indicated in Child Care Accreditation Standards in Alberta.
- Developmental learning in daycare includes providing access to learning experiences that develop a child’s physical, emotional, cognitive, social and creative dimensions.
- The Emergent approach to developmental learning means a daycare child is able to self-direct his or her interests, which the teacher can capture and build-upon so that the child becomes a co-creator of knowledge, and natural moments of learning can occur.
- Kindergarten Program Statement contains elements of knowledge that are the building blocks for success in Kindergarten and grade 1, serving as a strong foundation for a head start for daycare Calgary kids.
