Franklin Children’s Centre provides a healthy and supportive environment with a philosophy of child-centered care at the core. Led by certified childcare professionals who are compassionate and caring in their approach, the Centre is designed to stimulate social, emotional, physical and intellectual development in each child. Centre has been up and running since 2000.
Our program philosophy is child centered care. Franklin’s Children’s Centre (hereafter called “The Centre”) will provide the children with a stimulating and supportive environment. This environment is designed to motivate the child to develop and widen their individual mental and physical capabilities. This is done through a number of initiatives including:
For infants (ages 12-19 months) and toddlers (ages 20 months to 3 years), our Staff patiently redirect their attention to help guide them toward controlling their own impulses and behavior.
Caring for preschool-aged children (ages 3-6 years) requires that Staff have an in-depth understanding of the different development levels of the children in this age group. Staff facilitate the development of self control in children by using positive guidance techniques, children are provided many opportunities to develop social skills, such as cooperating, helping and talking with the person involved to solve interpersonal problems. Staff facilitate the development of these positive social skills at all times.
Franklin Children’s Centre promotes a family centered practice with collaboration between all
partners; families, staff and support services.
