CPE McGill has adopted the education program “Acceuillir la petite enfance”, developed by the Ministère de la Famille (MF) in 1997 and updated in 2007.

CPE McGill Program Goals and Objectives

Program objectives of Early Childhood Education focus on enhancing each child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. It is important that each child develop a positive self image that will be a foundation for his/ her life. Through the use of age-appropriate materials and equipment, qualified early childhood educators guide and support the children as they participate in activities developed by the educators with the interests, abilities and needs of the children in mind.

The team of qualified early childhood educators chooses aspects from the various educational theories and applies them according to their own beliefs about how children best learn and develop and according to their own teaching style.

Annual program goals that vary according to the age and developmental level and interests of the group and are consistent with the philosophy of the Centre are developed by the educators for their group. As well, in partnership with families, short term individual goals are developed for each child based on the developmental stage and individual needs, interests and abilities of the child.

Monthly program memos are sent home as a means of involving the entire family in the life of the daycare. Parent awareness of and involvement in their child’s daycare experience helps the child develop a sense of pride and security in themselves.
