Information for Parents

Champlain is committed to delivering a high quality of life for all its residents including its youngest citizens and welcomes your child and family to a warm, caring, enthusiastic and respectful atmosphere. Our educators provide a warm, loving, caring, active and safe environment for your child to grow, play and learn. Our dynamic team also provides bilingual services, secure environment, balanced, healthy and nutritious meals and snacks are prepared under the guidance of the Canada Food Guide, subsidized spaces for parents who meet the required criteria, integration for special needs children and programs based on "How does learning happen?" from the Ministry of Education.

Philosophy

Champlain Daycare Services is a place where children are able to take in many of life’s experiences. All educational material is available to children whom, with a little help from teachers, choose those activities which will further their social, cognitive, physical and emotional development. We offer a plethora of activities which will appeal to children in this age range and based on the Ministry of Education’s guide *How does Learning happen?*. 

Our programming steers the child into learning, waiting his turn, putting things away, sharing objects, listening to instructions and respecting friends during the time spent among us. This service aims to promote a positive environment and to stimulate the child’s curiosity, develop autonomy, respect for peers and adults, language, physical condition as well as intellect. All this development is done through various activities, namely: crafts, painting, and books, outside play, puzzles and board games, music, psychomotricity as well as other means.
