Mary and Talia first met while paired as teaching partners at a Toronto daycare in 2013 and immediately fell in love professionally! They share the same approach towards early years education-engaging caregivers as partners, providing exciting learning opportunities in a context-rich environment, and developing children's emotional and social well-being as a precursor for academic success. And voila! The Smart Cookie Club was created. Mary and Talia wanted to use their educational experience to create a program where children not only have fun but where caregivers also feel fully involved in the learning process and are able to take away practical tips to set their children up for future success.
At the Smart Cookie Club, we understand that children thrive when they are encouraged to develop their curiosity for the world around them. By providing children with a supportive and stimulating environment, we aim to instill increased confidence and independent thinking that will help them in their pursuit of future academic and social success. As part of this process, we also provide caregivers with the knowledge and practical tools necessary to nurture their child’s development and maintain a love of learning.
To provide quality child development and parenting information as well as children’s play-based learning activities directly to families; to strengthen our children, families and communities through education and developmental awareness.
