Once children are 2.5 years old, they then graduate to our preschool based full day Child Care Program. Each of our programs offers children a wide variety of hands-on learning experiences, while striking a balance between relatively structured and unstructured activities. The children have the opportunity to participate in a diverse range of educational activities that will encourage their SPICE. Our programs offer activities and materials that focus on a bi-weekly or monthly theme.
Within the Child Care Program, we provide many opportunities for the children to join together as a group.
Each child is unique individual, Our aim is that each child that graduates from the Child Care Program and moves on to next level – kindergarten, will be prepared both socially , emotionally and intellectually.
We have preschool / full time & part time spaces available in our facility.

Advanced Beginnings Curriculum (ABC) continues the Delta Daycare’s mission statement of “focusing on developing physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills through well organized, structured curriculum designed to stimulate the children’s own creativity, imagination and independence.” The learning experiences the children will participate in are made to keep the ideals of child development and education. ABC contains age-appropriate experiences that encourage creativity, the use of social skills, increase language development, and supports use of personal care skills. Each theme expands on the knowledge the children already have while creating new experiences for them to explore. The curriculum will include newsletters to help keep the parents and teachers communicating to increase learning experiences outside of the classroom.
