Toddlers and preschoolers attend programming at the TayCare Junior Children’s Centre, which provides high-quality early childhood education in a licensed setting. The Centre is a purpose-built facility attached to St. John’s High School in Perth.
All qualified staff are members of the College of Early Childhood Educators. The staff to child ratios vary depending on the program; toddlers (18 months to 2.5 years) have a ratio of one caregiver for five children and the preschoolers (2.5 to 3.5 years) have a ratio of one caregiver for eight children.
Children have a wide variety of materials to keep them active. There are various areas with toys, books, puzzles, and craft supplies. Children are encouraged to engage in cooperative play; toddlers and preschoolers participate in daily theme and music circles that consist of discussions about the calendar, the weekly theme and the weather followed by an art activity and song about the theme.
TayCare Junior Children’s Centre has two large fenced playgrounds. The play structures are inspected yearly by a certified playground inspector to ensure that all CSA standards are met. In addition, the program staff do daily, monthly, and seasonal inspections.
We provide a full hot, nutritious lunch that meets with Canada Food Guide
recommendations. In addition, morning and afternoon snacks are provided. We also have a breakfast program for children who arrive before 8:00 am; breakfast consists of toast or cereal with juice or milk for the low cost of 25 cents per day. Because some of the children in our care have severe allergies, we ask that no outside food be brought into the Centre. If your child has specific dietary requirements, please discuss this with the Centre supervisor at the time of registration.
The TayCare Junior Children’s Centre is open from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Friday, with the exception of statutory holidays.
