*** COVID-19 update ***

The Government of Ontario has given the green light to hold summer camps starting in July, only if the positive trends reported by the main public health indicators are maintained.

In order to give our teams enough time to make the necessary preventive adjustments, the first two weeks of our summer program, from June 29 to July 10, 2020, are canceled. At this time, our summer camps are scheduled to start on July 13, 2020. A full refund will be given to those concerned. They will be reimbursed by July 13, 2020.

If the number of cases increases in the coming weeks, be advised that we may receive instructions to delay the opening of our summer program. But for now, we are setting the first day of camps on July 13, 2020!

In addition, the Ontario government has just released its ratio guidelines (number of children per responsible adult). Le Carrefour will have to respect the directive of 8 children per group as well as two staff members, for a total of 10 people maximum per group. Read more here.

Our philosophy

If a child has been placed in our care, it’s because their parents want to offer them the personal growth provided by a rich, authentic cultural environment.

Our staff will gently but constantly encourage the children to use their abilities to interact with their playmates and adults in French.

Our activities are in harmony with the various learning styles of children. They allow children to live their personal development experience in their own way and at their own speed.

Our programming reflects the interests of children and the curiosity they exhibit in the present moment.

Our programming takes the importance of moving into account. We make sure to offer a variety of activities and games that encourage physical activity.

We foster the development of a sense of autonomy in children through lunch and transition routines, as well as activities that solicit their problem-solving abilities.

Our staff promote positive interaction among the children and play a mediation role in case of conflict. Children learn to live together and develop their resilience.
