Available Programs
Meals & Snacks

Meal times are a relaxed and social time for the child and educators. Children are given ample time to eat and conversation is encouraged--no matter the age! We encourage the child to try a variety of foods. Children who do not wish to eat particular foods will be given more of the foods s/he does enjoy. All of our meals are balanced and nutritious and guided by Canada's Food Guide. We provide three snacks throughout the day (one in the morning, one in the afternoon and a small one at 5:30). Our hot lunch is catered for infants transitioning from milk to solid foods and all toddlers and preschoolers. NYAD works with families to ensure that individual children's dietary needs are upheld.

Preschool

2.5 years to 3.8 years

Preschool children are becoming more independent, verbal and are making more relationships with others, their environment and ideas.

At NYAD, educators interact, observe, probe and reflect what they are seeing and hearing from the preschool child. Multiple thoughtful activities will be extended to the children to widen the children's experiences and concepts. This strategy continues throughout the whole day always taking into account the individual needs of the children.

An important connection for your child's success is community. It is with this foundation in mind that NYAD offers early learning in school settings, which allows for a seamless transition for your child moving from early learning to the beginning of their formative school journey. Our programming allows your child to realize their full potential by indulging their capabilities and curiosities. We give them a safe space to try new things, explore new ideas and take thought out risks, all while learning and developing at their own pace. A full day program is offered on PA Days, March Break, Winter Break and Summer.

NYAD understands the important period your school-age child is entering. We endeavour to help your child develop new skills become more resilient and independent. This is done through providing a high quality program that strives at meeting the needs of the children and their families. Our educators understand that school age children have varied interests and have different learning styles; accordingly, children are able to explore their interests such as art, language, technology, engineering, music and sports, to name a few.
