Children and Families
The Learning Enrichment Foundation believes in the involvement of children, families, Educators, and community in the operation of our Child Care Centres. Our Child Care Programs support and supplement the family unit.
Our professional Educators provide exceptional and high-quality early childhood education and care. We consider play as the essence of learning and that through active learning children will discover their world.
Through play, a child can set free their imagination and acquire skills, which will foster success in all facets of their development. The Educator’s role is to structure the child’s environment to promote discovery and learning through play. We continually strive to offer a stimulating, enriching and inclusive program which fosters optimal growth in the child’s social, emotional, intellectual, physical and language development.
LEF strives to meet the varying needs of all the children in our care. We do our utmost to ensure children and families have access to an environment that meets the child’s developmental needs, and, where possible, adaptations are made to accommodate individual needs.
To ensure a high standard of care, all staff members are expected to read and adhere to LEF policies and procedures, and to be well acquainted with the licensing standards set out in the CCEYA and O.Reg. 137/15 and the City of Toronto Children’s Services’ Assessment for Quality Improvement and working knowledge of “How Does Learning Happening? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years.”
