Daycare for Infant & Toddler - Under 36 Months
Learn n' Play provides a unique Infant Toddler program split into two levels: Junior Kindergarten Level 1 for infants and Junior Kindergarten 2 for toddlers. We offer a safe and nurturing environment at multiple locations across the Lower Mainland. Our licensed daycare centers are staffed with experienced and professional educators who are dedicated to providing your child with the best care and support, while promoting their physical and cognitive development.
We understand that transitioning your child to daycare can be challenging, which is why we work closely with families to ensure a smooth and happy experience. With an exceptional child-to-staff ratio, our team ensures that each child receives individualized attention and care.
At Learn n' Play, we believe that every child is unique and special, and we strive to provide the highest quality care for all children under our care.
We understand that starting daycare can be a big transition for both you and your child, which is why we have developed a gradual entry procedure to ensure a smooth and happy experience for everyone involved.
Our gradual entry program is designed to introduce your child to our daycare environment in a slow and comfortable way. Here's how it works:
- Pre-Entry Documents: Before your child's first day, you will be required to provide all documents given to you by our Manager including the getting to know your child form. This form helps our teachers learn about your child and provide them and overview of child's routine, preferences, and any special requirements.
- Short Visits: During the first day, your child will have a short visit to our center. These visits will gradually increase in duration, allowing your child to become familiar with our staff and environment.
- Parent Involvement: Parents are encouraged to participate in the gradual entry program by joining their child during visits and gradually stepping back as their child becomes more comfortable.
- Full Days: After the gradual entry week is complete, your child will be ready to attend full days at our daycare center.
We believe that our gradual entry program is an important part of the daycare experience, and we are committed to working closely with parents to ensure a smooth and happy transition for everyone involved. If you have any questions or concerns about our gradual entry procedure, please don't hesitate to speak with your campus manager.
Here's an example of a daily schedule for infants and toddlers attending daycare:

|9:30-10:30am||Outdoor play (weather permitting) or indoor gross motor activities|
|10:30-11:00am||Circle time with songs, stories, and finger plays- Music and movement|

The above schedule serves as a broad framework of the services we provide at our centers, but it's crucial to recognize that the specific schedule may differ depending on the particular requirements of the children in each class. To ensure parents stay informed, we distribute a newsletter and meal program at the start of each month, and we also maintain daily contact through Brightwheel's photo and messaging features.
