Caledon East Children's Place offers programs for Toddler, Preschool and School Age children.

Caledon East Children's Place follows the “Ontario Pedagogy for the Early Years, How Does Learning Happen?” and aligns it with elements of the “HighScope Educational Approach to Learning. The goals set for children are consistent with the Four Foundations of Learning. These include:

  1. BELONGING: Cultivating authentic relationships and connections

  2. WELL BEING: Nurturing healthy development and well being

  3. ENGAGEMENT: Creating contexts for learning through exploration, play and inquiry

  4. EXPRESSION: Fostering communication and expression in all forms

HighScope has goals and objectives and uses Key Development Indicators (KDIs) as the basis of their curriculum. KDIs are learning objectives which cover all domains of child development. (
