Little Steps Daycare & Preschool

 

Victoria West Community Association offers Licensed Daycare and Preschool Programs to meet your family’s needs. The Little Steps program is child-directed and play-based. This emphasizes the value of unstructured learning that allows children to make choices, experiment, and use hands-on exploration with materials in the preschool and daycare environment. The toys and activities are developmentally appropriate to support your child’s emotional, physical, social and cognitive needs. It is our philosophy that children learn best when the information provided to them is easily relatable to their lives, so most of the programming revolves around topics that they can find within their community.

 

Our outdoor Nature Preschool, which runs 9:00AM to 12:00PM Monday to Friday, gives little ones a chance to learn and explore in beautiful Banfield Park. Children learn about native and edible plants, science, and wildlife. They also participate in growing food outdoors in our community gardens.

 

Little Steps strives to provide a safe, welcoming environment for children to learn about their world as well as how
to navigate in it. Emphasis on cooperation, using words to solve conflicts and build self-confidence is a large part of the program. We strive to allow children to make their own choices and explore in an environment that is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing.

For ages 3-5, children must be toilet trained.

Out of School Care

 

The Victoria West Community Association offers a Licensed Out of School Care Program for those enrolled at Vic West Elementary.  Our program aims at a balanced combination of structured and unstructured program time. Activities are developmentally appropriate to support your child’s emotional, physical, social and cognitive needs. It is our philosophy that children learn best when the information provided to them is easily relatable to their lives, so most of the programming revolves around topics that they can find within their community.

Important Information Registration commences in March for Fall intake. Children must be between the ages of 5 & 12 years old and enrolled at Vic West Elementary School. Priority is given first to internal families, then external families wanting both before and after school care, and then all other families.
