Meet Our Director Laurie Newman
Laurie is a Registered Early Childhood Educator who graduated from the Early Childhood Education program at Sheridan College, Oakville Campus, in 2010. Since graduating, she spent most of her teaching years working with children in a toddler classroom until beginning her Supervisory role in 2014. Her goal is to provide the best quality care for the children which involves a child focused program to set them up for success in their future. She believes the greatest reward is watching the children in her centre grow from infants through to preschool when they graduate and move on to Kindergarten. Laurie enjoys spending time in the classrooms building relationships with the children, supporting her teaching team and setting a positive example. Laurie’s door is always open as she is a firm believer of communication. She welcomes staff, parents, and children to come in for a chat, share concerns or provide feedback. Laurie is looking forward to working with your family.
Pre school Room
Infancy is a wondrous period of growth and exploration. Our infant programs focus on building meaningful relationships with our families, built on trust, care and attention. By recognizing and acknowledging the needs of each individual child, infants feel secure and safe in their environment and thus creates a strong foundation to support the rapidly developing social, emotional and physical needs of infants while they explore the world around them.
While the focus is still largely on their primary care, toddlers begin to take their first steps towards greater independence. We promote their development through play and natural exploration of their surroundings. We begin to lay the basis for positive social interaction and support their positive relationships with peers. We focus on using our words, being gentle with our friends, sharing, and turn taking.
Pre-school rooms are equipped with age and developmentally appropriate learning materials and activities reflect the interests of the group and are often child directed. We encourage and promote positive social interaction and develop the many tools necessary to ensure a positive transition to “big” school and a lifelong love of learning.
