SimplySmart-Elmira provides hot meals cooked on site and has amazing qualified teachers that emphasize the SimplySmart values of honesty, respect, determination, responsibility, gratitude & generosity and compassion with children. The curriculum is based on How Does Learning Happen and allows children to grow in areas of language, math, science, gross motor and social and self-help skills. The centre goes above and beyond all the Ministry of Education requirements and offers a holistic learning program including daily activities maximizing the learning potential of each child.
