About Us

SCS Little Lights Early Learning Centre’s purpose is that children will experience learning in a happy, exciting, and gentle atmosphere.Our goals are to help your child grasp concepts of letters, numbers, and the world around him through play and experiment; and to aid in building meaningful relationships. Our centre takes the stand of Biblical views, integrating stories from the Bible and Biblical songs into the learning experience.

Our activities will include play, reading, art, experiments, dramatic play, math, letters, and science, as well as outside play on a daily basis. The program is focused on learning and exploring through play, allowing flexibility in the routine to adapt to the children’s needs. SCS Little Lights follows the New Brunswick curriculum framework
The New Brunswick Curriculum Framework includes four main learning outcomes which include the following:

  • Well-Being – Children experience safe and caring environments where their emotional and physical health, positive identities, and sense of belonging are nurtured and protected.
  • Play and Playfulness – Children experience open and flexible environments where playful exploration, problem solving, and creativity are encouraged and purposefully planned.
  • Communication and Literacies – Children experience intellectually, socially, and culturally engaging environments where their communicative practices, languages, literacies, and literate identities are valued and supported.
  • Diversity and Social Responsibility – Children experience socially inclusive and culturally sensitive environments in which consideration for others, inclusive, equitable, democratic, and sustainable practices are enacted, and social responsibility is nurtured.

Under these main outcomes there are a number of daily practices. We provide an opportunity for our preschoolers to experience these practices through invitations and open-ended play. Our goal is to provide our preschoolers a safe and nurturing environment which prepares them forthe next step of their journey.
