Preschool through Kindergarten curriculum adapts the French Ministry of Education’s official program to the bicultural and bilingual context. The overall goal is to allow children to grow in a happy environment where they will acquire a healthy desire for knowledge. The principal anchors of our program are:
Developing communication skills through language (speech and comprehension) and through behavior in a social context
Developing body and mind through physical education and artistic activities (dancing, singing, drawing, etc.)
Enhancing interest and natural curiosity through field trips, hands-on projects, and group work
Please note that all incoming students must be potty-trained before starting school.
The French early learning system uses a three center approach for learning:
The teacher demonstrates how to complete an activity or task to a small group of students and instructs them on the steps as they attempt to replicate the task.
The students work on an activity or task and receive assistance from the teacher's aid when needed.
The students work on an activity or task autonomously demonstrating their mastery of the skills
