Wise Owl programs incorporate ECD (Early Childhood Development) and Montessori International Curriculum, in full compliance with Prescribed Learning Outcomes as defined by the BC Ministry of Education and/or Montessori International, respectively.
What is ECD?
As defined by the BC Ministry of Education: “early childhood development refers to the growth that takes place from pre–conception until age six. The early years are the most critical for neurological development, as the most significant brain growth occurs in the first six years of life. The experiences of early childhood have a profound impact on the overall health and well being of individuals throughout their lifetime”.
