Our Philosophy

Brant Children’s Centre aims to provide a high quality, supportive and caring environment for all children enrolled. Our goals include:

  • promoting the health, safety, nutrition and well-being of all children
  • providing well-balanced programming that fosters children’s exploration and inquiry
  • supporting positive interactions among children, parents and staff
  • assisting children to respect each other and to learn and share
  • encouraging children to have fun, to enjoy learning and to use their imaginations
  • preparing young children with the skills, behaviours and confidence necessary for success in later years

Dr. Knoepfli, Brant’s Director, summarizes our philosophy:

"Although we recognize the importance of play, Brant is perceived as a school for young children. We are classroom-based with a focus on language, literacy and basic math skill. Our objective is to have children enter Grade One reading or at least having a strong phonetic background. We want children to have confidence and a ‘joie de vivre’ for wanting to learn when they enter primary school."
