Who are we?
We are a private bilingual early childhood care facility recognized by the Ministere de la Famille. We are your child’s home away from home. We are here to offer your child a complete nurturing and educational environment. We have a permit of 30 children exclusively and within this space each and every child is recognized and celebrated daily.
Our goal is to provide your child a complete educational program approved by the MFA to help your child reach their full potential and setting them up for a successful journey to school. Our educational program is inspired by Acceuillir le petit enfance and integrated with HighScope learning which focuses on your whole child (mind, body, and soul).
