Dare to Dream: Discovery Children's Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Blatz, Ron
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n197 p90-91 Jan-Feb 2011
This article features Discovery Children's Centre, one of the highest quality centres in the province of Manitoba, Canada. Discovery Children's Centre believes that children, who may have little or no voice in a democratic society, can be heard if some adult will speak on their behalf. Even as it has grown from 35 to 230 children, quality has always remained a focus. Discovery features three core programs: Infant (0-24 months); Preschool (2-5 years); and School-Age (6-12 years). Discovery is passionate about inclusion and works hard to provide all children the same great experiences under the guidance of a team of caring educators. No single staff is given the duties of caring for or educating the child with special needs. Discovery's goal is to "raise up a group of peers who will be willing to help their friends with whatever needs they have, long after they are retired and out of the picture."
