SSCY – Child Care CentreCategory: Child Care Centre
SSCY – Specialized Services for Children and Youth (pronounced “sky”) is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to Manitoba families of children with special needs. The child care program housed out of SSCY, Robertson Early Enrichment Program, is a premiere child care facility in Winnipeg, and boasts over 6,000 square feet of light-filled space. It is home to almost 50 children, and has its roots in the Reggio Emilia approach, where environment is considered the child’s “third teacher.” Environment has a tremendous impact on children’s motivation, engagement, learning and development. In creating a beautiful space for children, our goal was to pique curiosity, encourage exploration, foster creativity and to promote independence in learning and play. The space was styled and curated with the child at the center, and reflects a view of the child as investigator, researcher, explorer, artist and theorist.
