"To be at the forefront of inclusive education and to improve the lives of all children & families across the lifespan"
ADE’s mission is to provide an enriching educational experience that supports the positive social, emotional, cognitive, physical and language development of each child. The design of the centre encourages a calm and positive learning environment. The children act as active participants in their own learning experience, while our highly qualified educators are there to encourage and support learning.
ADE provides a research-based curriculum that follows Quebec's early childhood education act and incorporates a variety of innovative strategies & approaches in the field of ECE. ADE’s pre-kindergarten program prepares children for elementary school by giving them the skills and tools required for future academic success.
ADE follows an inclusive education model that promotes the inclusion of children with special needs in the classroom. ADE offers the support of special needs technicians in the classroom, along with a network of child development professionals who work in collaboration with the centre and it’s families to ensure a smooth integration.
Special Needs Integration
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”
ADE welcomes and supports all children, at all levels of development. It is important for us 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.
We follow an inclusive education model which ensures that all children receive accommodation and are provided with equal opportunities for enriching experiences in early childhood. All children are given equal opportunity to 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 encouraging friendships amongst all children, modeling positive behaviors, and setting higher expectations for children with or without disabilities. ADE collaborates with professionals in child development & health, who can provide services to children at our centre, during their day at preschool.
