JEAN HAMLYN DAY CARE
Jean Hamlyn Day Care Centre is a municipal Child Care Centre, owned and operated by the County of Dufferin. It is licensed by the Ministry of Education for a capacity of 65 children. Program staff are registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators (RECE).
Jean Hamlyn Day Care Centre offers a play based, emergent program. Research shows that there is a strong link between play and learning. All programs focus on viewing children as competent, capable, curious and rich in potential and provide them with learning opportunities based on their interests. They explore and practice these attributes through play. When children are playing, they are learning! Emergent Curriculum or child directed program planning is implemented by qualified RECE staff.
