Allenby Daycare offers programs for children ages 18 months to 12 years. Our programs focus on age-appropriate play and learning opportunities.  All children are involved in our play based and educational activities including music, art, storytelling and recreation. Activities for all age groups are based on “ELECT” (Early Learning for Every Child Today).

Each child is given opportunities to learn and play in self chosen activities, using materials and experiences that encourage exploring, questioning and problem solving. Through structured play, indoors and outdoors, each child is encouraged to pursue physical skills appropriate to his or her stage of development. The children are also exposed to creative experiences in art, music and sensory awareness.
