At N’sheemaehn, we believe that child care must provide experiences which invite children’s interest, stimulate creativity, satisfy the desire to explore and discover, and help children develop at their individual stage and pace.

We believe that each child is not only developmentally unique, but engages in learning experiences that happen at individually optimum times. The staff of N’sheemaehn attempt to challenge and support each child’s unique patterns of interest, talent and ability. In addition, an environment is provided which fosters each child’s self-esteem, independence and self-discipline.

We believe that children develop best as individuals in a social setting. We encourage children to demonstrate their feelings and needs through interaction and cooperation with peers and with adults. Children are taught to recognize that their actions have consequences. Furthermore, they are taught skills that help them to solve interpersonal conflicts with minimal adult intervention. We also encourage children to understand and have respect for themselves, their peers, their teachers, and their environment.

Within our Preschool Program we have an in-house Kindergarten component for four and five year olds that follows the Toronto Board of Education’s Curriculum using our play-based philosophy.
