C.A.C.H.É. Child Care

C.A.C.H.É. Child Care Service is an inclusive program serving children with special needs and typically developing children ages 18 months to 10 years of age.

Our programming is guided by the Ministry of Education’s Policy Statement on Programming and Pedagogy made under the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014.  This policy statement names “How Does Learning Happen? (HDLH) Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years (2014)”as the document to be used for the purpose of guiding all licensed child care programs in Ontario.  HDLH encompasses a broad range of program philosophies and approaches and may look quite different when put into practice in a variety of settings.

At C.A.C.H.É. we provide a safe welcoming childcare experience, where children are free to explore and engage in meaningful learning opportunities. Our learning environment allows children to interact with children of all abilities and examine their world in a relaxed, yet organized and predictable manner. These learning opportunities are presented at the child’s level with the intention of building on their present skills and abilities.
