10 Reasons to Choose Quality Early Learning and Child Care

Expert knowledge Early childhood educators are experts in child development and are trained to create inspiring learning environments!
Intentionality Early childhood educators provide your child the gift of time and attention. They will stop and explore the new flowers or jump in the mud puddles with your child.
Young at heart Early childhood educators know how to have fun! They’re not afraid to be silly and laugh with your child; all while nurturing your child’s creativity and helping to build their self-confidence.
Setting limits Every child needs reasonable boundaries, such as no playing ball inside. Early childhood educators set limits and support families in doing the same.
Love of literacy Early childhood educators read and tell stories, sing songs, and do puppet shows to inspire a love of language and to build early literacy skills.

Confidence boost Early childhood educators provide safe opportunities for your child to be independent and to become confident in their personality and decision making skills.
Inspired learning Early childhood educators ask open-ended questions to inspire creative thought and curiosity, to encourage children to explore, and to make learning fun.
Life skills Early childhood educators use their expertise to develop programs that use play as a tool for teaching math, literacy, science and essential life skills that last for life!
Making friends Early childhood educators are educated to appropriately support children to gain social skills, which are so important in making friends and developing positive relationships!
Helping hand Everyone gets stumped by parenting from time to time - juggling schedules, demands, and behaviours. When it gets tough and you need someone to talk to, reach out to your child’s early childhood educator!

Concert & Winter Festival for Idalia Livingstone

November 21st, 2019

Idalia Livingstone is an Early Childhood Educator, a valued ECDA member and the recent recipient of the "Educating with Excellence" award at the 2019 ECDA Fall Conference. She is also a dear, 12-year employee of Island Montessori Academy. Her talents and kindness have touched hundreds of children's lives. She is a loving wife, mother to two beautiful girls and a tireless advocate for Island children. This past June, Idalia was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer that has metastasized in the liver. 

As Idalia's work family, Island Montessori Academy is kindly asking for your help! They are hosting a benefit to provide financial support for Idalia and her family during this most stressful time. IMA is asking for donations to their silent auction or a direct monetary donation to the family. Donations will support a kind, caring, dedicated educator who has given SO much of her time to others.

Here are the ways to make a donation:

  • Directly to the family via e-transfer - tlivingstone@mac.com

  • Drop off donations to any of the 3 IMA locations - 41 Glen Stewart Drive, Stratford, 81 Highland Avenue, Charlottetown or 169 Meadowbank Road, Cornwall.

Item donations will then be auctioned off at a Benefit Concert, Silent Auction and Children's Fun Zone on Sunday, December 1st from 1-4 pm. This will take place at Park Royal United Church, 11 Christie Drive, Charlottetown. Music will be provided by Rachel Beck, Treble with Girls and more.
