Lakewood Childcare Centre & Lakewood Out of School Care strives to welcome and include all children, regardless of abilities and needs. Our main role is to promote growth in all aspects of child development (physical, social, intellectual, creative, and emotional). Each child is valued for their unique qualities and are encouraged to express their thoughts, needs, and feelings. Our centre will assist each child to discover himself/herself as an individual, and as a member of a group. As professional caregivers, we help children develop key life skills to be able to function effectively as members of society. As role models, we encourage children to show respect for themselves, for others, and for their environment.
