Early Learning programs and services are a vital part of our community. With many new, young families in our area, access to services and learning opportunities for children aged 0-12 are critical.
The following are the programs currently available for our early learners and their families:
Coronach Early Learning Literacy Centre strives to provide a positive loving environment for the children of our facility with a home away from home program that is developmentally appropriate for each of our age groups. We will work to make each day a successful learning experience through assisted activities and creative learning techniques involving crafts, cooking, stories, songs, physical activity and socialization. Our organization commits to ensuring a safe educational and social environment that promotes self-confidence, curiosity, and well-rounded growth in our child participants based on their unique levels of development. We aim to recognize each child’s individual talents and encourage their progress. This will be achieved through consistent staff guidance and daily communication with their parents.
From the Centre policy manual:
The Coronach Early Learning Literacy Centre (CELLC) strives to provide a safe, happy and enriching environment that embraces the uniqueness of each child and family, while providing age and developmentally appropriate activities, and simulating a “home away from home” atmosphere where parents can feel comfortable leaving their children.
Our staff meet our mission objectives by their desire and ability to create positive learning experiences through structured crafts, outdoor play, indoor free-play, cooking and baking, science, circle time, music, literature and socialization.
Children are encouraged to become self-confident, independent thinkers and the staff promotes curiosity, peer interaction and independent learning. Every child in our centre is recognized as an individual with distinct talents and needs. The staff encourages parent participation in developing specialized programming to meet the needs of their children.
Our centre believes that the parent is an integral part of our environment.

Our centre was created based on the need for quality, affordable childcare in our area. During the summer of 2007 our centre was developed through the commitment of community volunteers and the funding contributions of Saskatchewan early learning and Childcare. We opened for full time service in September of 2007 and have become a respectable and reliable childcare service provider for the members of our community and the surrounding area.
Our fully integrated facility located in the Coronach School is constantly growing and expanding to meet the needs of our patrons. Our independently functioning centre provides all the necessities of the day for children ages 6 weeks to twelve years as well as additional services available to the staff and students of Coronach School.
