About Mademoiselle Anne
The First Note
This organization was born out of a necessity to find an alternative solution to my children's preschool shutdown. While I was looking at different options, I realized that I needed a place where my daughter could meet other friends and learn in a playful setting rather than a typical daycare or preschool.
While I was reluctant to give up control over my kids' upbringing to a full-time preschool or daycare, I still wanted a place where she could benefit from learning with her peers and through qualified instructors. The programs offered are exactly that. It brings the best of both worlds together.
Our innovative programs aim at providing children with an exclusive experience through qualified instructors. These programs are really filling a need in the area for quality short-term programs in immersion.
Our qualified instructors possess extensive experience in children care, in addition to great academic backgrounds.
You can truly trust them to care for your most precious treasure: your kids.
Where does it come from?
The company is named after my daughter, Anne, who is the reason why I started this organization. Both my children have attended the JEU D'ENFANT program.
Colors are bright green and bright blue, green being my favorite color, and blue my son's favorite color.
This company is registered as an LLC, not a non-profit, solely because it was the best way to keep control over the business decisions; non-profit organizations require a board composed of several people.
While I strive to be profitable, this organization's main objective is to provide a service to the community, not maximize profits.
