A place where amazing things Get Done!
We are a licensed child care provider, as we strive to not only meet but exceed all guidelines for the childcare industry. We are not the closest proximity provider to many of our families but have been the provider of choice for most families in the area. We offer the highest level of care by the most qualified and experienced staff at the most affordable price in the community. We are driven by pride in our program and not profit which has created the loyalty and trust we are so grateful to have within the communities we have programs.
1st Class offers a wide variety of developmentally appropriate programs for children with a blended approach combining a learn through play philosophy, lots of physical activity and an introduction to new experiences and curriculum supporting materials and activities.
It is a time for story and language development, music and movement activities, and other varied learning experiences.
Our programs all have a pretend and learn area devoted to developing a child’s sense of “make believe”.
Before & After Grade 1-6
Our before and after-care programs go well beyond homework help. We support children in becoming the kindest, most capable, and most resilient version of themselves.
Daycare - Ages 3 & Up
We offer the highest quality care with exceptional long-term staff and management. The single most important ingredient in our program is how our experienced educators relate to the children in our care. At 1st Class it is our mission to make every child feel happy, safe and free to explore and learn, which we achieve through a programming designed specifically to meet the needs of each child, we provide tons of opportunities to engage in STEM, play, physical activities, literacy, clubs, and more.
With regular outdoor time and planned indoor activities, our children experience a world of movement, dance and recreation.
Books allow children to enter a world of “make believe” and learn about new and exciting things.
Our programs use a curriculum that is individualized to every age, with planned activities that combine learning and fun to create happy, curious kids. Our Kindergarten program offers programming that is designed to complement what they are learning in their classroom while still Playing, Growing, Learning & Having fun with weekly themes based on their interests.
At 1st Class, we use emergent curriculum to explore fresh approaches to find a good fit for each child. We implement a developmentally appropriate curriculum that is designed to stimulate the children through creating unique learning experiences, promoting physical literacy, enhancing creative expression while supporting emotional and social needs through positive role modelling and supportive and sensitive interactions. The curriculum is a flexible and dynamic program that begins with discovering each child’s interests. It invites children to discover more, dig deeper and construct further knowledge
