At Jan Reimer we are a two room kindergarten and out of school care program that takes inspiration from Loris Malaguzzi and the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy. Currently we provide quality care for children and their families attending both Jan Reimer and Shauna May Seneca. In January 2018, Shauna May Seneca will be moving to their brand new school and we will be opening up another kindergarten and out of school care program there. We proudly have a diverse team of educators from different teachings and learning experiences that makes up our daycare family! Our programming is based off the interests of our children and is enhanced by the Alberta Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care.
“Children...need most of the same things adults need-- consideration, respect for their work, the knowledge that they and the things they do are taken seriously.”
– Caroline Pratt
“We must credit the child with enormous potential and the children must feel that trust. The teacher must give up all preconceived notions and accept the child as a co-constructor” – Loris Malaguzzi
