Providng early learning and child care in Calgary for ages 10 months to 12 years old.
“Providing a well recognized and supportive child care service with structure that surpasses parent and children expectations is what is most important to our business. Our goal is to provide a creative, community focused, innovative program in which children can be involved in. Children are provided the opportunity to express their individuality, develop social skills, and learn though play. Children are encouraged to participate in group games, help in the community, and form healthy self esteem. From song and dance, to art and play, children are in the ultimate care; building early leadership skills, learning with others and ... expanding imaginations.”
Children’s play is central to this child care and day care curriculum framework as an active, exploratory, creative, expressive process, deeply embedded in children’s everyday experiences and through which children participate in, learn about, and actively make sense of the world.
The purpose of this curriculum framework is to:
Every parent wants their child to explore their world, experience meaningful participation, and hold a valued role in their community. More than anything, every parent wants their child to live an ordinary life.
That’s what GRIT wants, too. GRIT is a non-profit organization in Calgary that works alongside families and community partners to strengthen the skills and confidence needed to support every child’s learning and development.
As a trusted leader, we use research to guide our professional knowledge and practices to give the resources and information needed to achieve the best outcomes for all children. We offer support through our programs, Early Childhood Services, Specialized Services, and ASaP.
