About Us


“Our Goal, with the assistance of a team of dedicated people, is to provide the highest quality childcare in a warm atmosphere combining security, love, protection and nurturing.”

Our History

With over 45 years of experience, we have worked hard at maintaining our great reputation and are always committed to providing outstanding child care services to our clients.

The CPE Lachine first began in 1972, and our present location was purchased and renovated in time for our grand opening on September 6, 1985.

With an increasing demand for quality child care within our community, our second Center was completed in October 1999. It is situated adjacent to our first building and is connected with an indoor walkway.

Our Staff

CPE Lachine is privileged to have a bilingual, qualified, dedicated and nurturing staff that is committed to the educational and social well-being of all the children, in a loving environment.
The children benefit from an accumulated total of over 500 years of experience here at CPE Lachine. This skilled environment leads to strong stability, educational growth, and social stimulation.

Our Board of Directors

Since we are a licensed CPE we have a Board of directors. Six parent volunteers, the Executive Director of the center and a community member volunteer make up the Board of Directors of the non-profit corporation, CPE Lachine. Their role includes vision planning of short and long term goals, policy making and fiscal overseeing of the center’s finances.
Board members hold their seat for a period of two years and elections take place at the annual General Assembly.

Our Hours of Operation

Monday to Friday from 7:00am to 6:00pm. Ten hours of service is provided under the parent contract (Ministère de la Famille). Any time exceeding the ten hours is subject to a charge of $5.00.
Late fees, after 6:00pm are $1.00 per minute.

Our Facilities

CPE Lachine has two distinct facilities. The daycare building accommodates 68 children ages 3 to 5 years and the Infant/ Toddler Center accommodates 45 children: 24 babies from 0 to 18 months of age, and 21 children ages 19 months to 3 years. Some special features are: indoor & outdoor security cameras and monitors, monitored card-entry system in both buildings and the outdoor playground, an indoor gym, two fenced in outdoor playgrounds, air conditioning throughout, and much more.
