Location Support

Get In Touch

As dynamic, skilled consultants, we will take care of every start up need: from finding the right location, to giving you the keys ready to operate. We transform ordinary spaces into stylish, functional preschools and daycares within the greater Montreal and Laval areas. Working with an established network of qualified contractors, designers, suppliers, lawyers and accountants, our team will re-envision a space, negotiate a great lease, develop a custom business plan, and create a functional and educational learning program with a unique formula to prepare children for their future.


We pay meticulous attention to detail because we love what we do and you will too. Our collaboration is intense, our promises are kept, and our reputation is impeccable.  We look forward to working and meeting with you!


Check out a quick summary of our five-step process in starting your own daycare!

Step One: Choose a location

If you're looking for the ideal leasing space for a daycare, let us represent your interests and negotiate your leasing terms! The StartADaycare team will help you in determining the best potential space based on permit size, varying factors like competition and socioeconomic analysis, as well as the requirements set forth by the Ministere de la Famille.


The StartADaycare team will oversee the initial phases of demolition and start-up construction of your daycare, and an assigned broker and consultant will help you contact the city for appropriate zoning approvals and submit the applications for necessary permits and certificates.


Or perhaps, you'd like to buy your very own commercial daycare building in Montreal? Our Real Estate division can help schedule your visits and negotiate on your behalf. Making such an important investment should be left to industry professionals on the StartADaycare team.

More Information

Our side-by-side guidance includes visiting a variety of locations around the city, meeting with architects, contractors, HVAC engineers, and specialists to maximize the use of the space, and the implementation of an architectural plan.

Step Two: The Application Process

After working with you to submit the necessary applications to Quebec's Ministère de la Famille, the StartADaycare team will maintain direct contact with an assigned agent to prepare for the initial inspection of your chosen location.

Some of the permit applications forms include:


  • Playground Certificates
  • Actionnaires & Directors Form
  • Admission / Cancellation Procedure
  • Education Program & Internal Management
  • Medical Procedure Form
  • Curriculum & Daily Schedule
  • Registration Form
  • Administration Forms
