Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding our Centre:

 

What is a mixed age group setting?

A mixed age group setting is an environment where we do not separate the child based on their age.  For example, we don't place all the two year olds in one room, the three year olds in another, and so on.  This means that not only can siblings be in the same group together, but children have the ability to build relationships and learn from other children of varying ages.

What are the benefits of mixed-age groupingsfor the older child?
Older children help younger children and take on the role of mentor thereby developing leadership skills and in turn enhancing theirself-esteem and confidence.  Cognitive skills are improved through theopportunity to enhance, reinforce and consolidate knowledge through sharing with younger children.

What are the benefits of mixed-age groupings forthe younger child?
Security, trust and independence developmuch more quickly as there is immediate support and assistance from their older “buddies” in the Centre. They are exposed to models of positive social, emotional, physical and intellectual behaviours.  They benefit from the stimulation of a widerrange of interests, personalities and abilities.

Will children in a mixed-age grouping function academically at a level comparable to children ina same-age classroom setting? Available research to date shows that children in a mixed-age group will be functioning academically at least at a level comparable to those in a regular class. Moreover, research consistently indicates that there aresignificant gains in positive self-concept, positive attitudes towards school and learning and in co-operation in the Centre.

 

When Can I, as a Prospective Parent, Visit the Centre?

We recommend all parents and guardians to come visit the Centre with their child(ren).  As we have an open door policy at the Centre (parents can come and go at any time without calling first), any time is a good time to visit.  That being said, we recommend if parents are looking for a tour and an opportunity to answer some questions, to not come between the hours of 11 am and 1 pm as it is lunch time and nap time for some.

 

Are Their Government Subsides Available?

The PEI Government does off a Child Care Subsidy Program.  Subsidies are used to pay tuition costs for early childhood programs licensed by the Child Care Facilities Board. Any Island family needing child care may apply. Reasons for placement include: parents working or in training programs; special needs of the child; children at risk; emergency medical needs of parents; school readiness and parents waiting for English as a second language program.  The amount of subsidy, however, depends on the net monthly family income, age of dependants and size of family unit.  The current Child Care Subsidy Program worker is Jerome Michelin.

Ads on our Website?

So, why exactly do we have ads on our site.  We have Ads in the hope that the revenue from people clicking on the Ads will help us build a new playground at Dreams Unlimited.  Some of these links are part of a pay per click advertising program.  If you hover with your mouse over these dotted links, you will see a small dialog box containing advertisement related to the text marked. You can choose to, either move the mouse away and go on with your browsing, or to press on the box and go to the ad which is relevant to our text.  There are also banner and text links as well.  All revenue from clicks and / or sales goes directly toward a new playground at the Centre.
