Frog Hollow’s Kindercare Program follows a child oriented, play based philosophy inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.  Our program includes an enriched component with the image of the child in focus. Emergent curriculums allow for teachers to follow the lead of children as they emerge into learning through play, exploration and discovery.  Teachers assist in facilitating children with three key components of emergent curriculum learning, which consist of the adult teacher, the child teacher and the child’s environment. For more information please contact Mika at  604-251-1225 Ext 231 or email mika@froghollow.bc.ca

My son was in Kidsworld for 5 years and one daughter did Kindercare and afterschool care at Nootka and my youngest child is in Kindercare now. They have all had very positive experiences. I feel that they are in good hands and being well looked after and nurtured.
