Our full-day French Kindergarten Program allows your child to develop learning fundamentals and prepares them for elementary school.
Our Kindergarten Program prepares students for elementary school. Through song, games, painting, sculpture and classroom work, students develop learning fundamentals. Children will develop the essential habits such as the ability to listen, memorize and express themselves in a class setting.
Kindergarten allows your child to:
- learn French
- learn English
- interact with others
- acquire the basics of reading, writing, and numeracy
Each Kindergarten class is taught by a certified teacher and an assistant. Teachers are accredited by the French Ministry of Education and have specialized in early childhood development.
The Program is taught in French however, students also receive five hours of education in English per week.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
The Kindergarten Program runs from September to June, Monday to Friday from 8:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., with a half day on Wednesday from 8:45 to 11:45 a.m. (complimentary childcare service is offered from 11:45 am to 3:45 pm on Wednesdays).
The Before and After School Program, the Hot Lunch Program and break week camps are available to students enrolled in the Kindergarten Program. More information about these programs is available in Programs & Services.
Your child’s progress will be followed thanks to a Progress Booklet in which teachers will track skills such as “I can say my name in front of a group” or “I recognize and say the first letter of my first name.”
The emphasis of the Progress Workbook is on validating successes and tracking progress.
The Progress Booklet:
- Facilitates learning since children are aware of what is expected of them
- Allows teachers to individualize learning activities to best suit the needs of a child
- Positions parents to help their child learn at home thanks to a clear understanding of learning objectives.
