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:


  • 2 weeks worth of diapers, replenished upon the educators’ request;
  • One container of wipes;
  • Zinc ointment;
  • Transitional item i.e.: soother, stuffed animal or blanket (if necessary);
  • Small toothbrush (not battery-operated or electric) with a cover that will protect the tip of the brush;
  • Toothpaste without fluoride (optional);
  • Change of clothes (socks, pants and shirt);
  • Hat for outdoor play;
  • Indoor and outdoor covered toe shoes (no flip-flops);
  • Sunscreen;
  • Small blanket for nap time;
  • Rain coat and rubber boots (in the event that it rains);
  • Snow boots and snow suit (in winter);
