Our program is adaptable to all individual needs, talent and capacities

Our program will provide children to progress at their personal level within activities that are presented in a structured and semi-structured environment. Such activities are planned with a specific objective always remaining educational and fun.

Favouring and promoting independence:

All teachers are involved and included in the elaboration of the programming, keeping in mind that the primary goal is to give children a variety of experiences that will allow children to assert themselves positively, to promote their independence and to consume their energy in a relaxed and friendly ambiance. All teachers are able to uniformly and consistently guide children in a flexible, safe and warm environment.


Teachers use positive interactions and interventions at all times, therefore remaining fair and consistent in their approach. Children learn how to solve conflicting problems or situations, how to express emotions and needs in a positive, non-physical (non-threatening, non-aggressive) constructive manner. Adult’s interventions’ enables children to respect themselves and others. In addition to developing children’s skills and individual talent, our program plan allows children a better understanding of their abilities, therefore showing pride, independence, and discipline in participating in successful activities, which enhances their self-esteem.

The behaviour Management:

The behaviour management policy aims primarily at helping a child to be responsible while protecting the rights of others. Teachers set the tone and limits in playrooms giving the children freedom within the context responsibility. By letting the child be free to find own way in his peer group, he will learn what is acceptable and what is not, and deal with the logical consequences of his actions. When the situation is too difficult to handle, the child will show us through his behaviour that he needs help. The staff of the Centre will not use punitive methods, neither physical nor emotional, when dealing with the child.

Social setting:

The program is also based on the belief that children develop better as individuals in social setting. Therefore, children are encouraged to interact and cooperate with peers and adults. Furthermore, children are taught skills that will help them solve conflicts with minimal adult intervention.
