2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten Calgary, the top local daycare in Calgary, is currently enrolling new students. The daycare states that they follow a, “curriculum that is built on tried and true methods from all over the world. Not bogged down by one teaching method of philosophy,” and they believe that now is the perfect time for new students to get started.
2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten Calgary uses a teacher led, child-centric approach that is meant to encourage children to develop a love for learning new things and exploring the world around them. “By using children’s interests, we plan their week and guide them to learning and fun,” says the daycare, statement that is echoed on their website. “A special Plan-Do-Review part of the day (usually an hour) gets children thinking and in charge of their day. 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten has many extracurricular activities like yoga, dance, sports. Even our daycare teachers get 6-9 months of extra training on observation and our teaching methods.”
The daycare’s teaching style is similar to a 100 year old method of teaching called the Montessori program, developed by Maria Montessori. The program puts great emphasis on the child, and aims to give them as much freedom of choice as possible alongside the widest variety of options. Montessori incorporates a discovery approach to learning, where children are guided but allowed to make their own choices and follow their own path as opposed to being told what to do by an instructor. 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten’s methods are very similar to those prescribed by the Montessori program, with a few minor differences.
The daycare’s program tries to incorporate more learning while playing. Each 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten teacher is trained to find opportunities to teach children throughout the day. The daycare also strives to keep the number of teachers higher and the number of students lower, giving the former more time to teach and care for each child. As a family run daycare, 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten understands the importance of each individual child to their family, which is why they prioritize the welfare of each child in their care. While their philosophy is very similar to the Montessori Method, the daycare can make changes to their interpretation of it to cater to the needs of the families they work with—and it is this flexibility that makes 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten Calgary's best daycare.
A number of parents who have sent their children to the daycare have left positive reviews of the place, detailing how 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten has changed their children’s lives for the better. “It is, above anything else, the quality of the staff working at 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten that differentiates it from other daycares that I knew in Ontario and visited here in Calgary before meeting Marlene,” says a testimonial written by a parent named Frederica. “They work with children because they love children. In addition, the facility is always pleasantly clean and tidy. This daycare also has a kitchen with a chef who prepares fresh, healthy meals for the kids following a posted menu which has always impressed me for the well balanced diet and the great variety of dishes served. I would strongly recommend this daycare. If you are looking for a place, come for a visit, you won’t regret it!”
Another parent was pleased with the experience the daycare created for her daughter. She says, “I am so happy I found 2000 Days. My daughter has been attending PK1 for four months and she is very happy, she is excited from the moment we walk in the door. I go to work knowing that she is not only being taken care of, but that she is learning: words, songs, routines, patience. When I pick her, she is still smiling. The daily updates are very helpful and seeing the weekly plan, with the songs and activities, makes me feel like I know what’s going on in her day, even if I am working.”

2000days is an environment that was more than just a typical daycare. We wanted our son to truly learn, socialize AND have fun. More a school then a daycare…much more! So we used our experience in child care to open our own Calgary daycare school.
