Capital child Care Centre Inc. o/a Riverbend Child's Pavilion Daycare, After School Care and Mother's Pride Montessori Play School believe that as a team, parents/guardians and daycare staff can help promote the child's development. It is strongly believed that it takes a whole community to raise a child. We believe children develop self worth and become active learners through play in specially designed environment offering opportunity for problem solving, challenges and successes. We believe children learn through positive interactions with peers and adults, giving them the ability to appreciate differences and respect others property and feelings. Riverbend Child's Pavilion will provide a safe and caring environment that ensures the well being of every child and a positive, pro-active atmosphere to encourage the unique development of each child. Based on this philosophy we have set the following aims;

  • To provide a safe, warm and loving environment
  • To encourage children to maximize their potential and to develop at their own pace. To offer your child exciting and educational experiences, a valuable supplement to the primary parental home education
  • To make sure that the child's every need is being meet; therefore we believe that childcare should be an extension of what the child is already learning at home.
  • To provide a learning experience that focuses on all areas of a child's development; social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative.
  • To encourage children to grow in self-respect, self-control, responsibility and independence.

Montessori Play School Philosophy

We believe in Learning by doing - a child needs to 'touch', 'explore', 'learn' and 'enjoy' to understand the world around him. In order to stimulate a child's imagination, we provide opportunities for the child to grow and develop while reading, listening and playing.

The colourful and cheerful environment, child-friendly equipment, enticing toys and games at MOTHER'S PRIDE help a child to listen and discover, imagine and create. At MOTHER'S PRIDE a child also experiences the love and warmth of teachers who believe that each child is special and takes interest in each child's mental, physical and emotional growth.

It is a known fact that maximum learning happens during the early years of a child's life where his mind is open to new ideas. So, it is essential to hone the intellectual, physical, emotional, linguistic, social and moral skills that will stand a kid in good stead for the rest of his life. At MOTHER'S PRIDE we understand this and therefore make sure that we make no compromise when it comes to imparting quality education.

We'd like to share and understand your child's excitements, accomplishments and even disappointments.
