School-Age Program
The Child Care Centre located at 56 Kennevale Drive and is open Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. We operate in compliance with:
1.  The Day Nurseries Act (of the Ministry of Education (MEDU))
2.  All applicable Health and Fire Regulations. We are licensed to accommodate children
Children are natural born learners, with a desire and drive to learn as very young babies. In our program (aged fifteen months to two and a half years) we see from one month to the next, great leaps forward in each child’s physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and language development.
While all children develop in similar ways, each child is unique and developmental
milestones are reached at different rates. All aspects of development are stimulated throughout the day, interspersed with a generous helping of love, consistency, security, and trust. Music is a very important aspect of our program. Toddlers love to sing, especially when a song has lots of actions and repetition. Art and sensory activities are incorporated daily into our toddler program. The children thoroughly enjoy these activities. There are fifteen children in our program. The ratio is one teacher to five children. Teachers and parents seek a common goal to nurture and guide children in a loving, safe, and secure environment.




15 months through 10 years of age.
The Junior Preschool program has sixteen children aged 2.5 years through 3.5 years. The child to teacher ratio is 8:1. Our program activities help to develop the “whole” child. We program for the physical, cognitive, emotional and social development of the children. Our schedule includes
indoor / outdoor play; quiet/active play and child directed/teacher directed learning. By observations we pick an activity the children are very interested in and have them elaborate on this activity. We ask question at circle time or large group circle about the topic. Our present science project, butterfly larva is of great interest. We talk about the evolving butterflies.
There are twenty-four children in our program. They are three and four years of age. The child teacher ratio is 8:1. The emphasis in our program is to provide a warm and nurturing environment, where the children can feel safe and secure. Our goal is to plan and implement a stimulating and
enriching program, keeping in mind their areas of development physical, social, emotional, cognitive and language. We have many different learning centres for the children to learn at and to enjoy. Our small and large group times consist of reading stories, singing songs, music and movement, as well as games and activities, all enhancing their social, cognitive, and language skills. Outdoor play is an important part of our daily routine. In the Senior Preschool program we use the “project approach” to learning. This concept is self-motivated learning initiated by the children and implemented by the teachers. We invite you to come and visit our program during our fall parent information evening.
Program
Welcome to the Senior Kindergarten Program. We have an enrollment of twelve children. Our program compliments what the children are learning in their respective primary classes at school with emphasis on early literacy and pre-math skills. Our curriculum is theme related as well as
utilizing the project approach / emergent curriculum. This type of curriculum helps to develop small projects that are created by the children’s interests
Our program provides before and after school care for forty-five children between the ages 6-10. This program offers a variety of activities and includes outdoor play. The children are given the opportunity to chose from a variety of activities. This allows them personal choice with many advantages for their development. We have group discussions with the children, which allows us to have their input on activities and program ideas. The children help set the rules and therefore, logical consequences when these rules are not followed. The school age program provides a fun filled learning experience for everyone

Extended Day Program
Barrhaven Child Care Centre offers the Extended Day Program for families whose children attend Mary Honeywell ES. We are Third Party Operators, which offers this program on behalf of the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. The Extended Day Program provides your children with the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities before and after their school day. Some of the activities will include outdoor time, gym time, planned group activities as well as free choice activities. Our program provides children with a seamless transition from their school day to the Extended Day Program. It is also convenient for families as it limits the number of transitions children will have within their day.

In addition to various activities, The Extended Day Program offers all of the children a nutritious afternoon snack on a daily basis.
Extended Day Program
Reading/Quiet Area

Young children love to have books and stories read to them. We know that reading to children benefits them emotionally and contributes to their language development.

Cognitive Area

The Cognitive Area provides a wide range of games, puzzles and other cognitive toys.

Dramatic Play

The Dramatic Play Area is the social area of our room. It allows children to re-create the social roles they see in their everyday lives. The set-up of this area is designed to encourage children to try out role-playing as well as use their imagination.

Block Area

This is an area that provides children with interesting construction materials for designing and building.

Discovery/Science

The discovery/science area sharpens the children’s observations of the world around them. This is done through science experiments, games, books and hands on science equipment

Sensory Area

This is an area that provides many learning opportunities for children. The sensory area consists of sand and water tables. This area is utilized to promote the children’s development by “learning through their senses.”

Art Area

This is an area established in the room to allow for individual expression and creativity.

Music and Movement

Music is an important component of the programs. Music is everywhere and anywhere in the program environment.
