The Académie des Sacrés-Coeurs is a private elementary preschool located at the foot of Mont-Saint-Bruno in Quebec.

The essence of the project to redevelop the kindergarten classes and its adjacent corridor is designed around three major challenges: responding to a problem of lack of space, improving the sections allocated to learning activities, and improving the feeling of well-being and belonging.

Beneficing of an exceptional environmental framework, it was agreed to bring nature as much as possible inside the school to create new possibilities for games and amusement in the classrooms, making them flexible to the needs of teaching and entertainment. 

Inspired by the concept of treehouses, each room has been completely redesigned to add, amongst other things, a wooden house elevated on two floors. This new exploration module is the starting point for the creation of unique and stimulating playful universes and allows the group to be divided into several simultaneous activities. Quieter and more set back, the upper floor is now a privileged space for reading and contemplation purposes. Freed from fixed central furniture, the rooms are ventilated and facilitate different teaching configurations.
