Our Values Include:
Safe and Secure Children: When parents are looking for early learning and childcare programs, they need to find someone they can trust. We will continue in our efforts to ensure continuously improve our services to meet the needs of the children and families we service in an "home away from home" environment.
Experience the child's world: At DVMLC, we believe that we all share a responsibility to support and nurture the children's and our own natural curiosity and discovery. Our curriculum follows the flexible framework of Alberta's Early Learning and Care Curriculum which views children as mighty learners and capable citizens. Children are viewed as the Einstein's of their own discoveries, the captain of their own explorations, the master of their own creativity through learning by playing and expressive processes and embedded in children's everyday experiences. Children and Early Childhood Educators are co-constructors of early learning curriculum by making connections with the children's interests and their sense of the world . Educators are guided to broad holistic goals rather than specific outcomes. We employ certified Early Childhood Educators who are encouraged and supported for professional growth and development within the company and other relevant training sources. We learn alongside children and their families and embrace the opportunity to learn and grow each day.
Partnership: We believe in the adage; "It takes a village to raise a child". With that in mind, we strive to build a respectful relationship in the community that we service. For the common goal of delivering quality care, early childhood educators, families and the community should work together. We recognize that families, the organization, and the community are partners that bring something special to the children's social and emotional development.
Fiscal Responsibility: We are committed to maximizing the potential of the organization by committing to its purpose; providing high quality, affordable and accessible early learning, and care. Financial management promotes transparency, integrity and reliability of the organization's reports and accountability.
