About the Daycare

The main objective of our qualified team of educators is to guide the children through educational experiences conductive to the social, emotional and physical growth of each child. Our daycare offers a caring, safe learning environment that promotes respect.

The daycare's philosophy, purpose and goals are:

  1. To ensure the safety and general well being of the children.
  2. To offer homework support after school to the students with an appropriate place in which to work.
  3. To encourage the development of social skills such as respect and co-operation to others.
  4. To set up activities and recreational projects that contribute to the children’s overall development.

Our daycare is in compliance with the Quebec Education Act and the bugetary rules of the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS).


Upon completion of homework period the daycare also offers a variety of enriching extra-curricular activities in keeping with the needs and interests of the children. Daily activities are free of charge and supervised by qualified staff.

Children can participate in activities such as:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Reading Club
  • Storybook Creation
  • Team Sports (hockey, basketball, soccer, etc.)
  • Hip Hop

  • Play it Fair! program

Snack Program

In order to improve motivation, learning performance and concentration, the daycare provides students with a healthy nut-free snack. Students will develop healthy eating habits that will lead to living a healthier lifestyle.

Homework Period

Students are allotted specific time every day to begin their homework in a quiet and studious environment. Daycare educators are at hand to assist students with their assignments. Parents should still verify their child's homework at home.
