New Brunswick Curriculum Framework
for Early Learning and Care
At WCA Childcare Inc. we follow the New Brunswick Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Care (English). Learning through play is viewed as the cornerstone of the curriculum. Our curriculum follows a play-based, child focused model. Activities and materials are chosen by the children and teachers to reflect the children’s interests and developmental goals. The children, the ECE staff, and the parents are all co-contributors to our curriculum. This curriculum is based on the vision that all children will grow to their fullest potential with dignity, a sense of self-worth, and a zest for living and learning.
There are four goals for Early Learning and Care:
- Well-Being : For this goal we focus on emotion health, physical health, positive identities, and a sense of belonging.
- Play and Playfulness : For this goal we focus on using our imagination and creativity. We also encourage playful exploration, problem solving, as well as dizzy play.
- Communication and Literacies : For this goal we focus on communicative practices, multimodal literacies, and literate identities with/in communities.
- Diversity and Social Responsibility : For this goal we focus on inclusiveness and equity, democratic practices, and sustainable futures.
