A place to inspire, explore & learn in early childhood.
ADE offers a private preschool centre that implements early childhood curriculum based on the latest research practices in early childhood. The preschool offers a full-day program, with two distinct curriculums: Early Learning programs (for children 1 ½ to 3 ½ years) and Pre-kindergarten program (for children 3 ½ to 5 years).
A place to inspire, explore and learn in early childhood.
ADE’s early learning program introduces academic concepts & life-skills for children 18 months to 3 years. Our early learning program encourages children to explore their environment through play and learning based experiences. Doing so helps children gain confidence, teaches them emotional awareness and intelligence, and allows them to acquire language and communication skills which are critical for their development. Our pre-kindergarten program prepares children for elementary school by giving them the skills and tools required for future academic success.
EARLY LEARNING PROGRAM
Preschool program for children 1 ½ to 3 years
ADE’s early learning program introduces dynamic concepts for children 18 months to 3 ½ years. Our early learning program encourages children to explore their environment through play and learning based experiences. Doing so will help them gain confidence, teach them how to control their emotions, and allow them to acquire language and communication skills which are crucial during this age period.
JUNIOR PRE-K & PRE-KINDERGARTEN
Preschool program for children 3 to 5 years
Our full-day pre-kindergarten program prepares children for Quebec's elementary school curriculum by supporting them in developing the necessary skills for a successful transition into kindergarten. The program provides the children with meaningful educational experiences that promote emotional, social, language, cognitive, and motor development.
We understand child development as multiple domains that contribute to a comprehensive whole.
Our holistic approach to early childhood education focuses on promoting each domain of child development, slowly building on specific and global skills to promote each child’s overall development.
Young children achieve mastery of their bodies through self-initiated movement. Children have various opportunities to practice emerging skills in coordination, movement and balance, and perceptual–motor integration.
Children have varied opportunities to develop a sense of competence and positive attitudes toward learning, such as persistence, engagement, curiosity, and mastery.
All children have varied opportunities to engage throughout the day with teaching staff who are attentive and responsive to them and who facilitate their social competence and their ability to learn through interacting with others.
Children need a variety of opportunities to develop competence in verbal and nonverbal communication by responding to questions; communicating needs, thoughts, and experiences; and describing things and events.
Curriculum for cognitive development includes key areas: literacy, mathematics, science, technology, social studies, health and safety, and creative expression and the arts.
