Tips & Advice

Before you come to our centre, we suggest that you read the following tips and advice to help you be better prepared :


All personal belongings must be properly labelled.  La ribambelle is not responsible for lost or stolen property.  It is forbidden to bring jewellery, candies, gum, money, or toys deemed violent, from home. It is recommended to not bring any toys from home. This will help avoid many conflicts.

Outdoor play is part of the regular activities of the Centre and children go out twice a day. Children must be dressed appropriately and safely. (Please make sure that all items are properly identified with the child’s name)

Please bring the following items for your child:


  • Small blanket;
  • Small toothbrush (not battery-operated or electric) with cover that will protect the tip of the brush;
  • Toothpaste without fluoride (optional);
  • Change of clothes (underpants, socks, pants and shirt);
  • Diapers and wipes if required;
  • Sunscreen;
  • Hat for outdoor play;
  • Indoor and outdoor covered toe shoes (no flip-flops);
  • Snow suit and snow boots (for winter);
  • Rain coat and rubber boots (for rainy days);
  • Waterproof mittens which securely attach to his/her coat;

For girls, we accept hair brushes, elastics and barrettes in a well-identified Ziploc bag.
