OUR MISSION

"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.

 
 

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION IN EARLY CHILDHOOD

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” -Aristotle

ADE follows an inclusive education model which ensures that all children receive accommodation and are provided with equal opportunities for enriching experiences in early childhood. The curriculum is designed so that all children can participate in activities that promote social, physical, cognitive and language development. These early experiences are critical for the positive development & outcomes of each child. Inclusive education benefits everyone involved by teaching empathy and diversity, friendships amongst all children, offering positive behaviour, and setting higher expectations for all children, with or without disabilities.


ADE welcomes and supports all children, at all levels of development. It is important for our team to work in collaboration with families to spot risks and signs of developmental delays in early childhood so that early intervention methods can be applied. ADE collaborates with professionals in child development, who provide in-house therapy services at the centre, during a child's day at preschool.

PROMOTING LEADERSHIP IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

ADE understands the value of early childhood education and it's professionals. We prioritize training and professional development for all of our team members, including administration, teaching and support staff. Our teaching staff follow weekly development sessions with administration, monthly classroom quality control assessments, and quarterly performance reviews.

TECHNOLOGY IN EARLY EDUCATION

ADE offers parents exclusive access to a unique and highly innovative child care software. This application, available on tablets and smartphones, allows parents to access daily individualized updates of their child. Each day teachers update children's profiles with details of their daily lessons, meal-times, potty-training progress and messages to parents. Administration uses the software to process paperless billing, attendance, and other areas of centre management.
