"To be at the forefront of inclusive education and to improve the lives of all children & families across the lifespan"
In Québec, educational childcare services have a 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, behavioural 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.
We follow an inclusive education model that promotes the inclusion of children with special needs in the classroom. Our centre offers children with special needs the support of specialists in the classroom, along with access to a network of child development professionals.
