The Globe-Trotteurs daycare promotes the
overall development of children by allowing them to develop all their
dimensions, whether emotional, social, moral, cognitive, verbal, physical or
The child builds and develops through
experiences, whether in the daycare space or the social environment. The
daycare is there to facilitate learning.
Childhood development is influenced by
biological characteristics, immediate environment and the physical,
socio-economic and cultural context in which the child lives. Children learn
by watching others. The daycare team has worked for many years with groups
of various ages and we realize the potential of multi-age groups. Small
children learn from older ones and the older ones become more independent
and responsible. Children of different nationalities have the opportunity to
share their knowledge of geography and culture. The daycare holds group
activities to allow different age groups to mingle and share beautiful
moments. Our vision is of a warm and friendly place where core values such
as sharing, respect and love prevail.
We believe that the overall development
of the child is a gradual and continuous process, that every moment, every
experience and every action is an opportunity for fresh learning. The
teacher takes the time to learn each child’s particularities and give
positive support in the child’s activities.
A child’s first attachment figures are
naturally the parents. But an emotional connection also results from the
interaction between a child and people around him. It is therefore essential
to forge a deep bond with the child to reassure him. The Globe-Trotteurs
daycare ensures this integration gradually by meeting the particular needs
of each child. We establish a trust relationship with parents so that they
have peace of mind.
Children are all unique and develop at
their own pace, according to needs and areas of interest. (comprends pas
cette phrase: it is the first agent of his development, learns from his
actions, his interactions, playing and watching.) The adult pays particular
attention to the child’s motivation and guides him towards his own choices
and preferred activities.
Playing and exploring are essential tools
in the application of our educational program. Whether solitary games or
parallel, associative and cooperative exercises assembly, with simple or
complex rules, games are encouraged since they lead to different stages of
learning and allow children to grow in vartious ways.
We focus on language development and make
sure learning is progressive and fun. We encourage reading moments (stories
to improve vocabulary and comprehension) and teach songs and rhymes.
The educational program offers choices
and services aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles starting at a young age,
including eating habits and behaviour that result in positive personal and
We provide children with music lessons
and yoga so they can develop their concentration and enhance their self-esteem.
The overall mission of the Globe-Trotteurs is to
provide daycare of high quality. Our goal is to help each child develop at
his own pace, to support him and encourage him throughout his stay with us.
