Each childcare centre in Ontario recently went through the process of creating a Program Statement, as part of new legislated requirements. It was an opportunity for the staff, management and the board to review and discuss why we do what we do. The Program Statement that we developed captures the philosophy and goals that guide our program for our children. It describes the strategies we use to realize these goals, the plans of action to execute the strategies and the practices to implement, monitor and evaluate those action plans to continually improve our performance.
