Eramosa Learning Academy (ELA) is committed to providing a high quality program that
provides a safe, reliable and nurturing experience for every child.
ELA will focus on providing a respectful environment that fully supports the Four Foundations
of Learning as identified in “How Does Learning Happen?” Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early
Years. Our programs are consistent with Ministry of Education policies, pedagogy and
curriculum and the legislative and regulatory requirements for licensed child care centres as
set out under Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA) and Ontario Regulation 137/15.
In line with the Minister of Education's Policy Statement on Programming and Pedagogy.
(June 8th 2015), our program statement is a living document and will be reviewed and revised
annually to reflect the best possible practice.
The Child Care and Early Years Act (2014) includes a number of goals for every licensed
Child Care program in Ontario and ensures that each program outlines their approaches on
how they will meet those goals. Our values, goals and approaches are divided into sections in
order to ensure that they are clear and easy to understand.
ELA Educators will promote the growth and development of each child in a safe, positive and
rich learning environment. We view each child as a unique, competent and capable individual
and our goal is to help them reach their fullest potential through building play experiences
based on their interests.
