Faith Day Nursery began as a heart-felt outreach to meet the needs of parents in the community. On October 2, 1978, Faith Day Nursery officially opened its doors. Six children were enrolled by Christmas, and we have kept growing ever since. We are now licensed for 49 children and still offering quality child-care after 45 years.
We are a non-profit Christian Child Care Centre in London, Ontario. Providing warm, personalized care and developmentally-appropriate programs, we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for young children.
We believe it is important to demonstrate God's love for children by providing an environment enriched with Christian values. We recognize that children learn through their play, and provide opportunities for them to play in, and explore the world around them.
Our mission is to provide an Emergent Early Learning Program that meets all of the developmental needs of the children. Through daily observation, our teachers plan activities based on the children's interests. We have a Christian focus that is based on the Bible, teaching God's love and Biblical values.
The Emergent Philosophy focuses on the capabilities of each child, and what their interests are. This approach promotes the development of their self-esteem, sense of belonging, and self-worth. Educators learn best about children by observing them in action, and taking note of the learning that they are experiencing. Observation and documentation are therefore one of the most important roles of an Early Childhood Educator.
Faith Day Nursery uses the HiMama Childcare app to document and share information with parents. Teachers document meals, toileting, sleep, medications and activities which are compiled into a report for each child at the end of the day. There is a weekly planner as well as the menu posted in the app for parents to view. Parents are also able to communicate directly to staff through email. Over time, the App creates a portfolio that represents your child’s growth and development.
