Extended Learning

“The research clearly demonstrates high-quality early childhood opportunities help children succeed.”

Tim Kaine

Here at Sage Infant Care, catering to older ages and interests is not an issue. Through our holistically driven program, we provide opportunities for children to engage with technological tools, in order to further investigate avenues of interest. This enables the children to more fully explore concepts and further solidify their understanding.


We also engage in cooking experiences that allow the children to meaningfully connect with the concept of positive food choices, encouraging lifelong engagement with the beneficial process of wellness, thus increasing their ability to experience wellbeing.

Peer Scaffolding and Co-operative Play

“Early childhood education is an urgent educational, economic and moral imperative. Without it, we face a long-term national economic security crisis.”

J. B. Pritzker

Peer Scaffolding is the informal process of demonstration, brought to us by early educational theorist Lev Vygotsky. Focussing on promoting opportunities for more competent peers to demonstrate skills to less competent peers, the learner is able to casually observe and subsequently attempt in their own time and way. Rather than singling out the learner, it is a process far more compatible with the secure development of a positive sense of self.


Co-operative play enables children to meaningfully engage the social landscape, where they come to truly appreciate the benefits derived from meaningfully viewing themselves in the social context, paving the way to becoming effective global citizens.
