Les p'tits cerfs-volants

Presentation

The Centre de la petite enfance et famille Les p'tits cerfs volants is an educational daycare service offered mainly to Francophone parents and families in Newfoundland and Labrador. The creation of the centre in 2003 was the result of the efforts of the Francophone community in St. John's and the province, more specifically the Fédération des parents francophones de Terre-Neuve et du Labrador.

The children are between 24 and 69 months old.

Today, the centre is managed by the parents of the children who attend it. An annual general meeting, to which all interested parents and members of the Francophone community are invited, is held each fall. At this meeting, a board of directors, composed of five parents of children admitted to the centre for the current year, is elected by the parents whose children have been admitted to the centre for the current year. The Board of Directors is fully responsible for the management of the centre. Minutes of Board meetings are available from the Chair of the Board of Directors.

To share your ideas and/or questions with us, or if you would like to get more involved, contact the board members at the following address: conseil-administration@ptitscerfsvolants.ca
