Shale Room

Shale Room is the youngest of our four daycare classrooms at Primrose Place Family Centre. Shale Room is for children 12 months to 2 years old. There are 16 spaces available in Shale Room with an educator ratio of 1:4. When the majority of the children are 19 months the ratio changes to 1:6 allowing for 18 spaces available.

In Shale our children are beginning to discover their connection to the earth, and earthly materials such as mud and water. The children are often found being introduced to a variety of sensory materials, and sensory play. This is something that young children are known for as they are in the sensorimotor development stage, as Piaget states. Some things that we notice about the children in the classroom is that they are curious, explorers and are excited for everyday! The last thing that distinguishes our environment and classrooms is the relationships that are created between the children, educators, and community. The relationship allows them to fully reach their potential and creates comfort and trust amongst everyone. We welcome you to a fun, nurturing, and exciting, Shale Room!
