Philosophy

Centre de la petite enfance Vanier offers a child oriented environment. We follow the educational program developed by the Ministère de la Famille. This program is based on the principle that children learn through play. We believe that every child is unique and that every child develops at their own rhythm. We strive to instil in each child a sense of curiosity and genuine interest in his/her environment, which will serve as a solid foundation for future learning.

We believe that quality group care for children is a positive and beneficial experience not only for children, but for their families as well. The Center offers its programs as a complement to the child rearing role of the parents, serving as a support system like an extended family. Parents are encouraged to visit their children at the Centre and to get to know all of the staff members. In addition, participation in decisions affecting operations and procedures are encouraged through attendance at our Annual General Assembly or by becoming a member of the Board of Directors.
