A brief description of the child care program, policy, or practice:

For over 30 years, the Red River College Early Childhood Centre Inc. has offered early childhood care and education to children of students and staff at Red River College as well as the surrounding community.

Our Centre

The Centre houses 51 children between the ages of 18 months and five years of age. Our Toddler Program has an intake of four children (18 months to two years) and the Preschool Program caters to 47 children (two years to five years).

The Centre strives to offer exceptional childcare and education in an enriched learning environment. The children are actively encouraged to explore, interact, and experiment with their environment in order to develop social and life skills.

Our Focus – Our Children

Every child is a unique individual with rights for love, respect and quality care. We offer a play-based program where children choose from experiences that support physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth. Children are active learners, so every attempt is made to have them learn through decision-making and problem solving.

Our Program Offers

Daily outdoor play to promote adventure and nature education
Daily child-initiated and teacher-directed experiences in the Centre’s emergent curriculum
Newly renovated space and child-centred equipment
An integrated program for all children
A central location on a vibrant college campus
Access to gym facilities and other College services (e.g., Library, Health Centre)
Early Childhood Education students applied learning
Shared expertise with RRC Early Childhood Education instructors
