Mission

Our ambition is to provide an exceptional learning environment for children by delivering a loving and supportive setting for children and educators. We hold your child’s safety, happiness and well-being to our highest standards. Together, it is our responsibility as educators and parents to prepare children to succeed later in life. This highlights the importance of rich early childhood learning experiences that encourage children’s self-esteem and love for learning.

Philosophy

The safety and well-being of your children is our number one priority. We provide a safe, clean environment with high quality materials and resources. Our goal is to support children’s cognitive, physical, and social-emotional development through a program built on an understanding of children’s natural developmental curve. Recognizing individual differences in their development helps us to ensure age-appropriate activities and set individual learning objectives for each child. This allows us to promote children’s independence with the aim of instilling a strong sense of self in every child. In our fast-paced everyday life we are continually pushing ourselves and our children. The importance of high academic achievement has become the primary goal of early childhood education. However, pushing children too early can sometimes foster feelings of failure or decrease children’s motivation for learning. At Bonne Aventure, our goal is to put the emphasis back on the “pre” in preschool. It is essential to allow children to explore their interests, express themselves, play, make mistakes and adjust their understanding of the world through these instrumental experiences. Essentially, our role as educators in your children’s lives is to provide love, respect for who they are, support their curiosity, guide their learning, and encourage them to be actively involved in their learning process.
