Are you looking for the nearest daycare or preschool in Mississauga? Choosing a child daycare or preschool daycare in Mississauga is a big decision and one that comes at a very emotional time to find the best pre-school / Montessori / daycare in Mississauga.
Here at Playdays Childcare Centre, we understand that whatever your situation, whether you are looking to return to work, moving area, or whether you want your child to enjoy the opportunities available at their childcare provider!
Our childcare aims to provide a safe and harmonious learning environment for the spontaneous development of early year children between the ages of 18 months and 5 years.
Children respond best when they are in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment where they feel supported and are encouraged to explore the world around them at their own pace!
It is our privilege to watch your children learn new skills, grow in confidence and express their individuality during their time with us, and we are always proud to see them excel in their
educational journey once they graduate from our care.
Our caregivers are committed to providing our young explorers with a firm foundation on which to build a future of academic, social and emotional success. Our team will observe, assess and plan developmentally appropriate activities for your child, enabling us to provide a variety of learning experiences informed by the Montessori approach.
During your child’s time with us, our team will observe and assess their progress in order to understand where each child is in their developmental journey and plan the appropriate next step using this information.
Outdoor Space is also available as part of the curriculum.
We also offer the following program highlights, activities and holiday clubs:

During your child’s first week
Our team will do all that they can to make the transition from home to school as positive and as smooth as possible, for all involved.
During the first week of school, we stagger the children’s arrival times so that there is time for each child to settle in. When you arrive at the school, we ask you to say a quick, sweet goodbye and leave your child at the door with a teacher.
Children may cry upon seeing their parents leave, however, be assured that this crying will stop shortly once the child becomes involved in other activities. It is our experience that the more prolonged the goodbye, the more prolonged the crying. In the first few days of school, your child will rely on you for reassurance. Your child’s teacher will notify you of your child’s drop off time for the first week.
Settling in after the first week
We understand that most toddlers may have not attended school before and that it may take them some time before they feel comfortably settled into their new environment and routine.
In order to allow the class to adjust as quickly as possible and to provide the happiest environment for all of the children in the classroom, we ask you to observe the following points:
● At the beginning of the school year, it is common for children to cry when being dropped off. The crying almost always stops as soon as the child’s parents are out of sight. While we understand any reluctance to leave your child when they appear distressed, your child will settle into the class more quickly and easily if you say a quick, sweet goodbye at the door and leave quietly.
● Please remain outside of the school and away from the playground until it is time for your child to be picked up. Although it may be comforting to you, it may be confusing and/or disturbing for the children to see parents during class time.
Children are very perceptive, and their impressions are influenced by their parents. Therefore, you must always display a positive and encouraging attitude towards school!
We know how hard it can be choosing the perfect place for your little ones to learn and grow. So we have made it simple for you to find out exactly what to look for when exploring your childcare option
