The Nootka Children’s Centre offers an encouraging and healthy place to begin and end each school day.

A positive start to each day is an important aspect to success at school. After school children are welcome to build, create and play in a warm, fun environment inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. Our educators explore learning opportunities with the children and guide them to achieve their highest potentials through play and natural discoveries. Located at Nootka Elementary School our spaces offer natural and open-ended material to explore through creative play.

Project ideas and invitations based on observations and discussions are offered to children while further observation and documentations continue.  This interactive and reflective process provides children with open-ended projects that will allow them to experience learning that is unique and individualized.

Children at our program are offered:

  • a nutritious snack in the afternoon
  • variety of natural and open-ended materials to explore
  • equal opportunities to speak their thoughts & test their ideas
  • project-based learning opportunities based on their own interests and theories
  • community opportunities for encouraging exploration and compassion
  •  local field-trips such as visits to the public library and swimming pool
  • outdoor play and exploration opportunities at the ravine, local parks and the playground

 Our Nootka Children’s program is an inclusive, bias-free environment in which children’s thoughts are respected equally and incorporated highly in the foundations of the program.
