Care for Newcomer Children
Some Family Programs are for both parents and children together, and some are for parents with childcare provided on site.
When childcare is provided, children in the program will:
- Learn songs and rhymes in English and other languages
- Play and have fun
- Learn routines
Children are encouraged to speak English and make friends. They will learn the structure and expectations of a preschool classroom setting to help them adjust when they reach school age.
All Mosaic childcare staff are qualified to work with children, have up-to-date first-aid training, and have had criminal record and child abuse registry checks to ensure they are legally allowed to work with children.
You can read more details in our Childcare Workers’ Manual for Newcomer Children and their Families (pdf file).
