Tiny Bubbles practices the New Emergent Curriculum Framework (http://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/biling/eecd-edpe.html) set out by the province of New Brunswick. The learning environment is play based and child initiated yet guided by an educator by manipulating the learning environment by providing ample choice for children. We also adopt a positive learning environment where children are praised and encouraged to the utmost extent of their ability.
Tiny Bubbles is committed to providing children with a foundation of learning and developmental skills to assist them in becoming confident life-long learners. Our programs support the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of children.
Our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual child. The programs are developed through observations on a child's social, physical, intellectual, creative, emotional and self-concepts. By building on each child's strengths and abilities, we ensure that they succeed and therefore develop a healthy attitude to learning. We currently offer a wide range of developmentally appropriate programs for children. We aim to provide a total learning environment (http://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/biling/eecd-edpe.html)where children are free to observe, question, experiment and explore. Our programs incorporate play-based learning, structured learning and free-form learning. These activities allow opportunities for children to work in a one-on-one situation with centre personnel or in small or large groups with peers, to achieve step-by-step growth in all areas of their development.
At Tiny Bubbles, we promote non-bias and cultural understanding within our classrooms to enhance children's awareness of, and respect for, cultural differences that exist within our society.
Our programs are constantly reviewed and revised in accordance with the latest research in child development. We encourage parents' feedback on our programs and promote open and regular communication between parents and our committed staff. By working together, parents and centre staff can help each child develop to their full potential.
Our environment is set up to allow a child to explore their world by using all of his/her senses, experiencing how things work, and providing an opportunity to express his/her ideas and solve problems independently. This also encourages a child to develop new concepts and acquire critical thinking and reasoning skills.
Along with the cognitive development, we provide opportunities for a child to achieve an awareness of his/her own feelings and teach a child to express them appropriately in many different ways. Group activities and supervised interaction with other children will encourage a child to learn respect for the space and property of others and develop skills in peaceful effective conflict resolution.
Infants need to feel secure and be able to explore their environment through all of their senses. Toddlers are learning that they are individuals and practice their independence often. We encourage toddlers to explore their environment by making it safe and nurturing. Toddlers are learning through routine and practice of a set routine of life skills practice.
Preschool programs make learning fun for children who are preparing to enter a formal education system. Our educators focus on social interaction, basic reading skills and learning through play. Our curriculum prepares young children for that all-important leap into kindergarten -- and beyond.
