Gore Daycare

Rural Daycare

Gore, Québec

The growth of young families living year-round in the Municipality of Gore prompted the need for a new daycare (CPE). Owned by the town but operated by “Le Rêve de Caillette”, the daycare building was designed in 2 phases. The first phase saw the construction of a municipal skating rink and changing room, with the daycare building added on the following year.

The town managers asked that the building blend with the rural character of its surroundings, and  project a warm and inviting character for its young clients. Set in the woods, the centre features a screened porch to protect its occupants during black fly season. Despite its homey appearance, the new daycare respects all of the technical requirements of the Québec government’s Ministère de la Famille.

With cathedral ceilings and tall windows, the daycare’s various classrooms are bright and airy. Hidden from sight are insulated formwork walls and radiant heated slabs. The children and their parents appreciate the comfortable environment, while local tax payers appreciate the centre’s energy efficiency and low utility bills.
