Learn more about our preschool program and child development services.



ADE is a private preschool, daycare and child development centre.

Our preschool and child development centre follows an inclusive and child-centered approach based on current research in early childhood development and education. Our centre offers full-day preschool programming, extended daycare, clinical therapy services, and children’s programs.



ADE meets and exceeds Quebec's early childhood education triple mission: ensuring the well-being, health and safety of the children entrusted to them, providing them with an environment that stimulates their development, and to prevent the emergence of learning, behavioral or social integration difficulties.

Our mission is to provide an enriching educational experience that supports the positive social, emotional, cognitive, physical and language development of each child. Our program follows an inclusive education model that promotes the inclusion of all children, including those with special needs. We support children with special needs by offering in-house therapies and services to help with their preschool integration and inclusion in the program.






Inclusive & Child-centred approach

Our private preschool centre offers a full-day academic preschool program for children 1 ½ to 5 years of age. Our preschool centre offers two distinct programs: Early learning for children 1 ½ to 3 years, and pre-kindergarten for children 3 to 5 years. Our programs follow a child-centred approach that is designed to prioritize each child’s success. We offer an innovative educational model, based on research-based practices using technology to track children’s children’s milestones, progress and design curriculum according to developmental needs.


Clinical therapy services

Our child development clinic follows a multidisciplinary approach, whereas collaborating professionals center all therapies around the child by offering services on-site during a child’s day at preschool. Our clinic offers therapy services to external clients (non-preschool members), scheduled by appointment. 

  • Speech therapy

  • Occupational therapy

  • Behavioural intervention (ABA) therapy

  • Recreational / Play therapy



Workshops, activities and academic programs

Our children’s programs are tailored to promoting the children’s development in early childhood. Programs range in interests, offering art, music, sensory, sports, tutoring and academic readiness. Our qualified instructors are CPR certified and trained to work with young children in educational settings.



A few words from our ADE families!


ADE has a very special place in our hearts. Our son, Leonardo, was among the firsts and he has blossomed incredibly since starting here. As parents of a micro preemie, we had never thought about daycares. The risks of illness were just too high. We also still didn’t know if he would need additional therapies or have learning difficulties. So when I discovered ADE, and after my first meeting with Joanna, I was confident that this Center would be a perfect fit. Not only is cleanliness their top priority, they have a strict protocol for sickness. Their teaching approach is like nothing I had ever seen or heard about. When you walk through the doors you’re transported into a world of imagination! Everything from the decor to the play areas create such a positive atmosphere for the children. The educators have become our family. They all share the same attitude and vision to provide a great education in these early years. I am proud to send my son to a place that will help mold him into the best version of himself! Since starting here my son’s medical team as seen such an improvement in his learning capabilities. If need be in the future we will be working together with ADE’ s in house therapies. The fact that Leo can remain in his environment and receive that special care means everything to us. I cannot say enough good things about ADE. They have brought so much joy into our lives ❤️ The Gattola Family
