Mission Statement

Together, we will provide a safe and engaging learning environment for all.

Ensemble, nous créérons un milieu d’apprentissage stimulant et sécuritaire pour tous.

Les Chats sauvages

On behalf of our students and staff, welcome to École Élémentaire Collettville. Every effort is made to provide a child-oriented school where students will have the opportunity to work and play in a modern, safe, clean and happy environment.

Children have many teachers: their parents, their community, their peers and their teachers at school. Individually they also possess many varied abilities: artistic and manipulative. We believe children have the right to the opportunity to learn.

With your continued support, we accept the responsibility for offering the opportunity and we will do our best to fulfill that obligation to each and every child.

Play is the Way – We are a Play is the Way School!

PLAY IS THE WAY is a practical methodology for teaching social & emotional skills using:

  • A unique program of physically interactive games (that both require and develop personal and social competencies).
  • 5 guiding concepts (that are embedded through classroom activities and serve as a moral compass to help children do what they believe is right as opposed to doing what they are told).
  • A specific and empowering self-reflective language (that helps children to master their behavior in preparation for a responsible life in free society).
