Compass ELC, formerly known as Kawartha Child Care, is a child care centre located next door to St. Martin School and also offers an after school program at St. Martin School. Compass ELC offers programs for toddlers to school aged children(aged 18 months-12 years of age). Each program is a designed to meet the social, emotional, developmental and intellectual needs of each child in a stimulating and nurturing environment. Each child's uniqueness is recognized and the Centre strives to meet his/her developmental needs. Compass ELC emphasizes the fostering of children's self-esteem, confidence, independence and social skills. Central to our curriculum, we believe that relationships are the foundation of our work. Through journals, photos, projects and learning stories we engage families in the life of the school. On the outskirts of Peterborough, our rural location offers us nature at our fingertips and we see the outdoors as a classroom extension. We understand the complexities of families today, especially within a rural community. Our program offers full and part time day care as well as a Nursery School Program.
