About Us

Playcation is a child care and recreation facility for children nestled in the upper beaches neighbourhood of Toronto. At Playcation, we emphasize the importance of play as an essential element for a child’s healthy development and learning.  We provide enriched programming using play focused ideologies that reflect Toronto’s ever growing multicultural and diverse population.

Philosophy

Learning Through Play stimulates and develops imagination and critical thinking. It strengthens problem solving skills and nurtures important values such as team building, respecting alternative opinions, and appreciating different cultures and traditions.
At Playcation we believe that young children need the support of teachers and staff who understand the value of play.

Values

At Playcation we believe that children who engage in complex forms of socio-dramatic play have greater language skills, better social skills, more empathy, more imagination and develop a higher level of emotional intelligence. Play also results in children being less aggressive and showing more self control and higher levels of thinking. Acquire more in-depth thinking skills and patterns.

Mission

By facilitating Play. As children Play together, they learn to share the materials, to accept other’s ways of doing things, and to enjoy being a part of the group. Children learn to feel good about themselves and each other as they learn that they possess the power to do things. We encourage children to create and find new ways to do things. It gives children a zest for imagining and learning that will last a lifetime.
