Come explore with us, at Small World Learning Centre.
Award-winning Small World Learning Centre is the only childcare organization in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, housed in its own facility designed especially for children, an attractive and modern building constructed in 2007 and a 2,000 square foot addition that opened January 2016. We are a just a short walk through the woods away from the new Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre, which houses a skating arena, the public library, sledding hill and swimming pools.
Our indoor and outdoor spaces, designed to feel both homey and like a natural extension of our woodland environment, are arranged to enhance the wonder and magic of childhood in every way possible. Our children, their families, and visiting childcare experts all comment on the beauty of our centre, particularly when it comes to our outdoor play area.
We are also pleased to be the only childcare organization in Lunenburg County that offers Reggio Emilia inspired childcare programs. Our first aim is to provide a comfortable, supportive, and stimulating atmosphere for the children in our care. Our well-trained staff members base their teaching on close observation of the children at play — the true work of childhood. We observe the children’s interests and then offer them opportunities to explore them more fully. In this way, the children and the teachers develop our curriculum together. We emphasize discovery in the natural environment and with natural materials as much as possible.
