With the framework as a base, Block 8 Academy strives to include a holistic approach to education and childcare that recognizes all areas of learning: physical, emotional, social, linguistic, visual, auditory, and intellectual while encouraging the development of critical thinking and encouraging the natural curiosity of children.
Choosing Early Childcare with Block 8 Academy means choosing a licensed, established childcare centre that follows the Early Learning Framework and also allows for multiple subsidies including The Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative and the Affordable Child Care Benefit. This applies to all families. Additional subsidies are available for families with total annual income less than $120,000.
Matching SD43’s school hours, our school-time classes are 5.5 hours per day and include a preschool curriculum, plenty of outdoor time in our community, free play time and nap time for those who wish. We work with families to provide the amount of care needed; families can choose from 2- 5 days per week.
