Quality Staff

The success of any child-centred program relies on the strength and innovation of its staff and ours are exceptional! All of our teaching staff are registered Early Childhood Educators who may also hold university degrees and/or additional diplomas. These energetic and knowledgeable educators are well trained and attend numerous professional development workshops and seminars throughout the year. They are dedicated and committed to providing your child with the best care and education while supporting each family in their role.

Quality Program

Heritage Green Child Care Inc is dedicated to supporting children’s learning, development, health and well-being through caring and responsive Early Childhood Educators, who focus on active learning, exploration, play and inquiry, and who see children and their families as competent and able, and as active participants in all aspects of the program.

A key feature of the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014, is the focus on strengthening child care programs and ensuring high quality experiences for children. The CCEYA authorizes the Minister of Education to issue policy statements regarding programming and pedagogy for the purpose of guiding operators of child care and early year’s programs. How does learning happen? Ontario’s pedagogy for the Early Years (2014) is the document used by Heritage Green Child Care Inc.

Quality Programs Have Quality Goals

In order to have a quality program, it is important to have well-defined goals that are understood and valued by all members of the team. At Heritage Green, we have worked hard to not only articulate our goals, but also put in a plan of action on how we will ensure that we are meeting and exceeding our goals to provide a safe, welcoming and healthy environment for all our participants and their families.

Heritage Green Child Care wants to ensure that your children have a safe and positive experience that promotes their growth as a leaner. To this end, the Director or designate will observe staff interactions with children ensuring that they align with our program statement and beliefs in adult-child interactions. The following practices are not supported by our facility:

  • Locking the exits of our facility from the inside
  • Using a lock or lockable room or structure to confine a child that has been withdrawn from the group
  • Abusing a child physically, verbally or emotionally
  • Depriving a child of basic needs including food, shelter, clothing or bedding
  • Using corporal punishment
  • Using deliberate harsh or degrading measures that would humiliate the child or undermine his or her self-respect

In the event that the Director or Supervisor observes or is made aware of any practice that is not supported, they will address the issue with the staff member according to the strategies outlined in the Disciplinary Policy that is outlined in the Operations Manual.

Additionally, all Early Childhood Educators have made a commitment to abide by the standards of their profession as set out in the College of Early Childhood Educators Code of Ethics and Standards of practice. All Early Childhood Educators hold themselves accountable, and will use the Code of Ethics, the Standards of practice and the CCEYA to guide their decisions and practice.

We keep records pertaining to monitoring of our Program Statement for 3 years.

Fun in the Summer Sun!

Heritage Green Child Care has been providing summer camp for over 15 years, and every year the camp has grown a little bigger. Due to the increase in our enrolment for camp, we are changing our registration process for 2019.

We will be offering 3 registration nights. Registration forms will only be accepted on these three nights:
  • Thursday, March 14 from 3 - 5:30 pm at Mt. Albion (in the hallway by March Break camp)
  • Monday, March 17 from 6 - 8 pm at Heritage Green Child Care
  • Tuesday, March 26 from 6 - 8 pm at Heritage Green Child Care

Those parents requesting full weeks will be processed first. Parents who request part time spots can drop off their forms on one of these nights, but they will not be processed until Wednesday, March 27. Forms will be numbered, and processed in the order they were received. You will receive an email confirmation by the end of the day on March 27.

After March 27, any available spots will be allowed up to and including April 30, based on availability. There will be a $35 administrative charge for all changes. After May 1, there will be no refunds or cancellations.

Due to the high demand, limited enrolment and the need to secure program resources, families' full commitment upon registration. Credits or refunds are not given for illness, absences or program/facility closures due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
