UNBC Childcare philosophy believes that children learn best through play and this serves as the foundation of our daily programs. Children choose activities that interest them from our staff's carefully selected subjects.

The room is set up each day to stimulate curiosity, encourage problem solving and social interaction. Most importantly the children must have fun!
