This unique, licensed daycare, located on a beautiful 9 acre hobby farm of orchard, forest, pond and pasture, at Mill Bay, is dedicated to providing the best possible environment for supporting and fostering the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual development of children.
Due to popular demand, by parents on a waiting list, we are expanding to an additional 2 acre location at 1689 Malta Rd. Shawnigan Lake.
Our nature-based focus, combined with the cognitive Montessori approach to learning, coupled with the creative, intuitive, project-centered Waldorf method, enables us to provide an integrated learning synthesis for children of all ethnic back-grounds and learning styles. Inclusion and cultural sensitivity are fostered.
A reverence for nature is instilled through tree planting, nature walks, organic gardening, and other activities associated with the land. Each child has his/her own garden plot. Children love story telling time and puppetry in the two tipis.
A love of animals is developed through connecting with the horse, two miniature donkeys, alpaca, goat, two calves and feeding the ducks and chickens.
Starchild Centre is staffed by experienced, qualified, Infant/toddler Early Childhood Educators. Limited space is available. Please see website: www.starchildcentre.ca, for more information or call Petra or David at: 250-929-3240 250-733-2535.
