A Bright Beginning Child Care strives to provide a learning through play environment
which makes provision for the development of the whole child -social, emotional,
physical and intellectual. We recognize that each child requires nurturing adults who will
encourage exploration of the environment, interaction with peers and self-expression.
Our goals are to provide an environment which values individual children and families,
respects their uniqueness and nurtures their growth and development.
We allow children to be individuals by allowing them to play in developed learning
centre are which interest them. We also encourage them to express their unique feelings
and ideas by providing positive reinforcement. We are aware that children test limits set
for them, but by being consistent we endeavor to teach them co-operative living and the
need to respect the rights of others.
The Centre strives to create conditions in our environment which reflects the goals and
values of our multicultural society and teaches children the uniqueness and the
importance of each other’s background and lifestyle.
We encourage safe ways to express feelings without hurting others or damaging

We believe that good listening habits practiced by both adult and child enhance
communication and produce a good learning environment.
Parents are partners with staff in guiding their child through these key developmental
years. An “Open Door” Communication Policy encourages parental involvement and
communication between parents and staff.
Staff are viewed as role models and professionals who take part in the education process
of children. Professional development is a commitment. Each individual is encouraged to
further develop their skills and expertise within their profession. To do this we support
the Grande Prairie Regional College - Early Child Development diploma program.
Our goal is to implement an educational program that incorporates the needs and
development of the child through the art of play and to assess the program regularly to
ensure that the child’s needs are being met.
