copyrightFull Day Daycare • 3 to 5 years old
Group and preschool daycare Port Coquitlam, Tri-citiesThe full day daycare program has a well planned daily schedule that includes early learning, free play and outdoor activities. Early childhood educators work with our director of curriculum to develop activities that have achievable goals relevant to your child's overall development.

This daily schedule is not "cast-in-stone"; it serves as a framework to provide a sense of consistency and security for children. It can be changed from time to time to suit the needs of a particular group of children and it also provides flexibility for special events, weather, and time of year or general interest level of the children.

NOTE: Our Riverwood Gate and Bainbridge Campus have one 3-5 yr full day classroom. Westwood Plateau has two classrooms for this age group; with the younger children in a smaller more intimate classroom and the older children in a traditionally sized room.
