Elmwood Child Care Centre Ltd has been serving the communities of East Hants and the surrounding area since 1996. As an Early Childhood Educator, starting my career in 1984, my philosophy has always been 'learning through play. The programs offered at ECCC reflect my philosophy.
Elmwood Child Care Centre (ECCC) began as a small centre on Elmwood Drive for (10) children in 1996. Today, there are three locations with programs that offer child care for families with children age 3 months -5 years.
Each location is a government approved licensed child care centre under the Department of Education Early Years Branch, following the guidelines and regulations of the Nova Scotia Daycare Act and Regulations.
Elmwood Child Care Centre Ltd is committed to providing a high-quality, play- based early childhood education program implementing the Nova Scotia Early Learning Curriculum Framework. The quality of our programs is the result of many years of experience and a strong commitment to meet the needs of the children and their families.
Elmwood Child Care Centre Ltd believes that children learn through play, risk taking and exploration of their environment. We feel children are entitled to opportunities that support all of their development. Elmwood Child Care Centre believes in fostering active learning, cultural diversity, inclusion, creativity, independence and parent involvement by providing positive interactions between children, educators, parents, the centre and our community.
