Our Lady of Fatima Learning Stories

We love sharing all the learning that is taking place in our programs. Every program at our centre shares a new story each month, so be sure to check back often! You can also email and print each story to share with friends and family. 

Sensory play is vital to a child’s development in many ways: it promotes brain development and allows them to explore the world around them; however with new health and safety protocols we’ve had to get creative with how we implement them into our program. The educators in the toddler room at Our Lady of Fatima put their heads together (socially distanced that is) and came up with various ways in which we could still provide these important activities to our children while continuing to follow our new policies and procedures to keep each child safe and healthy.

Our Lady of Fatima Projects

Projects evolve based on the children's interests, where our educators act as co-learners. Projects are documented in three phases; generating ideas by making a plan, implementing the plan and reflecting on the learning.

Completed: Fall 2017 RECEs: Cassandra, Shannon, Chloe, Susan, Ashley Objectives: To further explore the children's interest in growing seeds in flowerpots in the classroom. The children were interested to learn more about gardening and how to build their own garden with different veggetables and herbs.               Our project emerged in the Preschool Room when the children created grass pets out of nylons and grass seeds and began growing seeds in flowerpots in our classroom. The children watered the soil daily and watched the green emerge from the pets and the soil. The interest in gardening grew when the educators the teachers brought in items such as gardening gloves, spades, soil, buckets and seed packages. A lot of planning went into designing, building and planting for our garden box. Using a variety of materials such as pebbles, tiles, gems and beads the children created steppingstones out of concrete that were later added to the garden. We grew many veggetables in our garden including carrots, beets and cucumbers. We also grew mint! Click here to read the complete documentation on our project
