ABOUT US

WELCOME TO MARLA'S MINIS

 

Marla's Minis is a first-class childcare and education centre for children

18 months to 5 years old. We are located inside the Church of Saint John the Baptist and are steps away from Kinsmen Park, Lakeshore Pool and 

Pointe-Claire village.

OUR SERVICES

OUR OBJECTIVE

To create a positive experience for children by teaching, playing and caring for them so that they can learn, feel safe and enjoy school.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Teaching and learning are tools that allow students to construct and develop their world-views, discover their identities and become self-empowered. A teacher should encourage students to be curious about their distinctions, in order for them to recognize their unique contribution to the world.

  The classroom should open students to a reality they would not necessarily experience in their immediate environment. It should be a place to awaken learners' senses, stimulate their imagination and encourage critical judgment in an interesting, attractive and non-threatening way. 

 Learning occurs when students are attentive and active. This only happens when teachers accept that they do not know everything, take an interest in their students and respond to their interests, show openness, elicit different points-of-view, and most importantly, show their passion and desire to be part of the competencies and energies of the school team, educational community and social milieu.
