About Us

Welcome!

Here at Agape, our intent with our program is to provide the necessary education, developmental activities and opportunities for each child to reach their full potential in life, physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.

We accept and value the uniqueness of every individual human being. 

Our Philosophy

Agape Learning Centre believes that an early educational program will nurture and enhance each child’s social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional and spiritual needs. Each child, regardless of ability, will have opportunities to learn, create and explore in a loving and safe environment.
We further believe that these goals are best met in a centre that:
  • Sees each child as a unique individual with abilities which are different from other children

  • At any given time, each child is developing physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially and creatively. All of these are related to and dependent upon one another and are of equal importance in the child’s development

  • The dignity and worth of each child must be respected and enhanced

  • A child whose needs have been adequately met is more likely to develop into a healthy, responsible and secure person

  • Parents and society should provide opportunities for children to develop their abilities to their fullest potential

  • A child has a natural curiosity that, in an appropriate environment, results in an eagerness to learn. Providing opportunities that stimulate this curiosity is important

  • Family, Early Childhood Educators and community are all important in the planning and implementation of the child’s Early Childhood program

  • Values staff that have training in Early Childhood with ongoing professional training

  • Requires parents or guardians participation in their child’s program

  • Provides opportunities to hear bible stories, Sunday School songs and sing a prayer before lunch

What Our Families are Saying

This daycare is wonderful. Our toddler is learning so much. The teachers are very caring and extremely patient. I love that there is a designed curriculum for even the youngest children.

We’ve been with Agape for 6 years now and I feel like they are our extended family. These are people that truly care.
