Preschool

Welcome to the Preschool

Immersive Learning. An incredibly rich program. 

Research shows that an immersive early-language program enables young minds to develop the superior critical thinking and problem-solving skills that give them a competitive edge in today’s global economy.

Our preschool program is incredibly rich and diverse: inspired from pedagogic methods in France, children are immersed in the French Language, they develop their personal and social skills and through play skills, improve on their problem-solving or fine motor skills. Art projects encourage their creativity and promote their imagination.

Passionate and Inspiring teachers … and uniquely qualified to teach French.

After all, it’s their first language! Led by French and American faculty, small classes and student-centered learning plans empower teachers to inspire and challenge each student to the best of their abilities.

Pre-elementary classes are taught by French teachers using an approach that provides a truly immersive experience at an age when the human brain is most open to linguistic development.

Teachers establish a relationship with their students promoting trust and care. They give each student the opportunity to express their potential and talent.

A day in our preschool

Immersion in fun learning activities.

The day starts with ”circle time” which will allow your child to develop listening skills and vocabulary along with the ability to communicate in French on topics that motivate them. It’s also a time for songs and story-telling. Imagine your child coming home with songs and poems in French! At that age, learning a new language is a piece of cake and their pronunciation is as good as a native speaker.

Art

Drawing, painting, and sharing work with fellow students provides a great opportunity for self-expression and helps to reinforce language skills.

Our class library is filled with classic cultural tales in both French and English.

Writing and Penmanship

Our students learn the skill of creating letterforms and are encouraged to practice their penmanship with fun activities.

An increasingly complex global society requires a more competitive early education. With over 30 nationalities and more than 10 languages spoken on the campus by our students and faculty, no wonder our preschoolers will be world ready! Our community of parents is multicultural, inclusive, and shares common values about education: respect, tolerance, seeing the world as a place of challenge and opportunities for the children of today.
