Providing care for young children, Seneca has two early childhood education teaching schools that are fully functioning child care facilities and demonstration/observation centres for the School of Early Childhood Education.
The Newnham Campus Early Childhood Education Observation Laboratory Teaching School provides a child-oriented, developmentally appropriate curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers. We provide an atmosphere where children are comfortable and able to learn through play and the exploration of their environment.
The King Observation Teaching School’s objective is to demonstrate, for Early Childhood Education students, a high quality program that benefits each child, each parent and the community. In addition to the children of Seneca College employees and students, the school accept children from the surrounding community. Children ages eight months to twelve years participate year-round in full day, half day, or before and after school programs on a full or part-week basis.
