Our mission is to offer children quality childcare in a stimulating, warm and safe environment. We offer childcare in the workplace. As such, the schedule and services offered must meet the needs of the users.
At the Centre de la petite enfance des employés de Bombardier, we value:
respect for oneself, others and the environment;
sharing and collaboration
These values are of great importance to our organization as they guide our interventions and exchanges with children, their parents and colleagues.
The Bombardier Aerospace Employee Childcare Center (Montreal) opened in 1997.
The Bombardier Aerospace Employee Day Care Centre (Montreal) is a workplace center. As such, it must meet the needs of the parents who use it. Its schedule and the services it offers correspond to the environment in which it is integrated. The CPE has a permit for 200 places, including forty (40) infants and one hundred and sixty (160) children. It accepts children from the age of three (3) months to school age. It may accept children with special needs as long as they are able to integrate harmoniously into the functioning of the groups.
At the Centre, we believe that the child should feel at home. The environment offered by the Centre must be warm and the child must feel safe. They must be able to develop their autonomy, their tenacity and their socialization, in a context of mutual respect. The supervision to which he is subjected must be flexible, respectful of his self-esteem and must encourage him in the pursuit of his learning
The services are offered from 5:45 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. in three facilities, two of which are located in St. Laurent, namely Vol-au-Vent I and Vol-au-Vent II. Another facility, Courants d'air, is located in Dorval
Since its foundation, our daycare center has been bilingual. We are always committed to meeting the different needs of our families.
On January 23, 1997, the Centre de la petite enfance des employés de Bombardier opens its first installation in Dorval, Courants d’air. At its inception, the permit is for 60 places. A second installation, Vol-au-Vent, also holds a permit for 60 places.
The Bombardier Aerospace Employees' Childcare Centre (Montreal) is a non-profit organization. It is therefore managed by a board of directors whom are parents at our center and representative of Bombardier Aerospace.
