The Chartwell House Early Learning Centre - Preschoo in Oakville

Contest: The Chartwell House Early Learning Centre
Country setting. Flexible schedule. Nutritious food. Enriching experiences.
A true home away from home.

Contest 2: ENTER TO WIN ONE month full time preschool from The Chartwell House Early Learning Centre

It’s the perfect description for a weekend retreat, but what if it also described your child’s day care centre?
It can. The Chartwell House Early Learning Centre lives peacefully in a heritage home in southeast Oakville on Chartwell Road. The grand character and cozy comfort of the past remain, along with beautiful updates that have created amazing spaces to please little hearts and hands.

The one-acre property includes a shady backyard where the children ride and slide, do yoga, and plant and maintain vegetable gardens. Inside, teachers work with small groups of children as they direct their own play, discussion, and real-life learning. An on-site chef stirs up something tasty for lunch – always homemade and never processed.

Owner Alexandra Fell says she created The Chartwell House because she wanted parents and children to feel like they could “have it all.”

It’s all here for families to take advantage of,” she says. “Maybe you need care Monday and Friday only. Maybe you don’t have time to take your little one to music and dance and soccer but want them to have a chance to do those things. We are here to make life a little easier for parents while we care for, develop, and educate their children.

The Chartwell House is eco-friendly in so many ways that it’s earned a designation for being a “green school.” These values, along with a commitment to community involvement, are passed along to the tiny good citizens of the future who spend their days soaking up Chartwell experiences.

And those experiences certainly are unique and diverse. “I’m sure we’re the only centre that takes the kids on field trips to the recycling and waste management site!” Alex says.
If you’re searching for the right place and type of care for your young one, Alex has these tips to share to help you with the transition:

Listen to your gut. Feedback from others and references are important, but you know best what preschool matches your family’s needs.

Be ready for all the emotions – yours and your child’s. I’m here to tell you honestly – there will be some tears! (Mostly yours, in my experience.) Unfamiliar routines, teachers, and children will naturally cause some anxiety. The more comfortable you are with your choice of centre, the more familiar you become with its environment, people, and offerings, the easier the transition will be. Visit the classroom a few times before the first day so your child can interact with teachers and children.

Get ready at home. Talk to your child about the activities and routines they will be part of at preschool. Do some of the activities you have observed happening at the centre. Talk about the children and caregivers they’ve met.
Be calm and confident. Children are resilient! Too much emphasis on the change could bring out more anxiety in all of you. When parents feel guilty or worried, the child senses it. The more assured you are about your choice to send your child to a particular preschool, the more successful your child will be.
