The French immersion preschool is located in 3 locations for children aged from 21 months to 5 years old:
A Blend of Various Pedagogical Methods to Learning
We offer fully immersive, joyful, and explorative classes to the young learner and individual exploration. The main objective for students is language mastery, and building their early academic foundation by fostering their natural learning desire and their social emotional development.
We have created a fully immersive program in French to facilitate French language mastery early on, while also introducing students to important skills for school preparation.
Curriculum based on the French National Curriculum
Becoming a Student
Socialization is a big part of the preschool experience. Students will learn skills around communal life like rules of conduct, hygiene, and how to show respect for others. They will discover how school life is organized and what role the student plays in school. Finally, becoming a student also means learning to become independent, to show initiative, and take responsibility for actions and tasks.
The entirety of our school day is taught in French and our curriculum materials are designed to facilitate French language mastery. A key focus of our program is to enable students to express themselves and interact in an intelligible way, to enrich their vocabulary, and learn to structure their sentences.
Reading and Writing
To lay the groundwork for reading and writing teachings, students will work on words sounds, the alphabet, and graphics.
Discovering the World
We lay the foundation for mathematical and science exploration through the introduction of basic observation, questioning and reasoning skills. During preschool, students are introduced to space and time concepts, as well as numbers and compare/contrast groupings.
Preschool offers a significant opportunity for artistic introduction, exploration, and expression. Students are asked to listen, observe, and participate in a range of art forms, including painting, dance, music and theater. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore language around opinion and emotions.
Expression Through Movement and Gross Motor Skills
Through obstacle courses, theatrical activities, group games and the exploration of movement, discover their capabilities and develop motor, sensory and emotional capacities.
