Our Daily Program

Our Daily Program

At SHBASC, our daily routines are designed to meet the needs of individual children.  We actively implement an open-ended program based on children’s continuing interests. This allows opportunities for children to play, explore and develop new skills and theories and is appropriate to the developmental and leisure needs of the children. Children are encouraged to participate in this process by completing surveys and speaking with staff. The current week’s program can be viewed on the notice board at the Centre as well as on the Centre’s website. Below is a typical day at the Centre.
