Your little one learns through laughter!

Our early childhood centres are much more than a care centre: they are learning environments. Through play, your toddlers acquire skills that already prepare them to succeed in school… and in French! Our staff implements a holistic approach to early childhood development. With us, early childhood education is very important!

Our teaching approach

Every child deserves personalized attention, and to have their personality respected. We therefore adapt our activities to the kids, rather than adapt the kids to the activities. Childhood’s enthusiasm and joie de vivre are energies that need to be channelled. But we let the children guide us: they’re very good at letting us know if we’ve managed to reach them where they are, to begin, and then brought to explore further afterwards.

Play is how a child acquires new concepts and develops confidence in his or her abilities. Because our aim is overall development, we keep in mind that distinctions between physical, intellectual and emotional development can be artificial. In reality, each one of these aspects influences all the others.

In accordance with the policy statement of the Ministry of Education, Carrefour francophone uses the Ontario’s pedagogy for the early years “How does learning happen?“. This tool guides Carrefour francophone and the educators in the development of our programs and services for early childhood.
