Our Philosophy

Children are competent curious and rich with potential.

90% OF A CHILDS BRAIN IS DEVELOPED BY AGE 5.

Beacons of Light Daycare (BOLD) offers services to families in the Sarnia-Lambton area, with the intention of children successfully entering the educational system with confidence, curiosity and potential. We at BOLD view children as competent and capable individuals, with the ability and knowledge to successfully learn and achieve. Children are supported on this journey by offering direct and hands-on experiences, using materials that are open-ended and provide opportunity for creativity and expression of self. Children are encouraged to initiate activities, or materials, creating their own experience, ideas and concepts with positive support and encouragement from the adult, using an approach that guides the child, rather than directs. The environment is based on the developmental needs of the child providing materials, experiences, and interactions to foster strengths, developmental needs, reflect on interests and support the child regardless of abilities. Children will use these abilities to interact and communicate with others in a positive manner and will support the growth of their ability to self-regulate.
