Learn Why We Started Our Daycare
Our STEAM Focused Pre-School
As the only STEAM education daycare in Calgary, we believe in providing your children with every chance to excel. By incorporating an early yet fun introduction into science, technology, engineering, arts, and math, we’ll give your children the tools they need for continued success as they grow.
TRAINED TO GIVE YOUR CHILD EVERY ADVANTAGE
Our staff members are highly trained and follow the five principles of healthy child development. Research has shown these principles are essential for quality programs. The five principles are:
- A Caring Adult,
- The opportunity to make Friends,
- An opportunity to Play,
- The opportunity to Master Skills and
- An opportunity to Participate.
Our teachers will also attend the annual SAPTA (Southern Alberta Preschool Teachers Association) conference held for early childhood educators. By attending this conference, we will ensure our programs are kept up-to-date on the latest industry regulations and standards.
Science Matters will be operated in partnership with the I’m For Kids Team. The government-funded organization provides one-on-one care by certified educators to children with developmental delays and children with ESL (English as a second language) needs.
The daycare program materials we will use include Kumon, Scholastics, DK, Brain Quest, and Carson-Dellosa workbooks for phonics and early printing.
When you send your children to daycare, you want to know they are receiving the benefits you signed them up for. At Science Matters, we believe in having open lines of communication with our parents. Once a week, we will update parents to let them know what their child is currently working on. The update will include what stories we are reading and the STEAM activities of the week.
In addition to the weekly updates, we also have a WhatsApp group for parent communication. Once connected, parents will be able to view pictures, receive important information, and communicate absences with the teachers.
