PLAY BASED LEARNING
Play-based learning helps a child develop holistically through social-emotional learning, developing confidence and motivation, and practicing cognitive skills.
Play-based programs are also sometimes called 'child-centered' because the children guide their own learning with their curiosity and interests.
Children who eat healthy foods in their everyday lives can be more alert and interested in activities, which can improve their concentration and learning. The Educators at Little Joey’s are in a unique position to help your child’s development and growth, by promoting good eating habits. Our menu is the best in the region and we believe children who eat well are healthy children.
Beginning early in life, social and emotional learning (SEL) is highly important for helping your child to understand and manage their emotions, feel and show empathy for others, establish healthy relationships, set positive goals, and make responsible decisions. At little Joey’s Early Learning Centre this is an integral part of your child’s education.
