The Discovery Room
Welcome to the Discovery Room. Each side is staffed by 2 Teachers, along with an inclusive Teacher at select times.
Our caregivers focus on building a relationship of trust in those first weeks of transition to ensure that adjustments are comfortably made as separations can be difficult sometimes.
We want you to feel connected to your children while they are in our care, as well as helping them feel comfortable as well.
To help children with new environments, we have family photos posted in our rooms on designated family doors. We also have photo albums of the children doing their activities in our book centre that they like looking at. Each child has a Communication Book located in their lockers for daily communications by staff, as time permits. Parents are welcome to comment and taking this book home is optional if required. We ask that they are returned the next day to continue with daily comments and/or observations.
You may request a phone conference at any time with our Teachers.
Please provide for your child:
- stuffy or blanket for nap time
- a clean set of extra clothes labeled with child’s name
- sippy cups for water
- diapers or pull-ups
We go outside daily, so please dress your children with the weather in mind.
If you have any questions, comments, concerns or requrests please feel free to speak directly to staff, leave a note or comment in your child’s Communication Book.
We look forward to growing with your child and family!

The staff look forward to getting to know you and your child.
All child-centered activities are designed to learn in a play-based environment.
To facilitate a smooth transition we encourage parents to bring in a family picture for posting. Any pictures from another room move with the child or parents can provide updated photos.
Daycare staff welcome any communication, via email, phone or in person from parents concerning their child.
Blankets are washed every Tuesday. If the preference is to have a personal blanket washed at home, please ensure that a blanket is returned the next day.
Please take note of the whiteboard located outside our room where messages are posted about our day or any notices about upcoming events.
Parents are encouraged to drop in and observe the daily routines of Explorer Room children. Also, feel free to ask questions you may have about your child or the centre.

As in other rooms, family pictures air transitions for children. Updated photos can be provided by parents desired.
Communication between parents and Daycare staff is valued, so communication is encouraged about anything concerning your child.
Parents are requested to empty their child’s locker on Fridays to accommodate the use of our space by Church groups and prevent items being misplaced or lost.
Personal blankets provided by parents are washed weekly on Fridays. Please advise us if the preference is to wash the blanket at home.
A whiteboard located outside the Inventor Room informs you of the daily activities, messaged and upcoming events.
Parents are invited to drop in and observe their child and daily routines. Also, please feel free to ask questions with the staff.
