Whether you are just starting with the introduction of the French language to your children or want to broaden the exposure they have already been given in a different setting, our little students
have a broad spectrum of exposure to French. Parents with little or no French are encouraged to help their children get started in a new language by bringing them to an environment where
they can have fun while they learn. We also cover other areas of age appropriate learning and activities and some French culture and traditions.
A typical day begins with a little time for the children to socialize in a centre of their choosing until all of the children arrive and have had some time to get settled. The centres are
ever changing but are based on fine motor activities, creative activities, co-operative and dramatic play. After clean-up, children gather for a short circle that will include greeting, daily
calendar, weather, counting, songs, often including instruments and rythym, and the children are then introduced to the activity for that day whether it be an individual or group art activity,
science experiment, or an activity of a different nature based on the current theme. A formal circle time with stories and song will come later while snack (provided) is being prepared and
following physical activity in the gym or at the playground; the day ending with socialization with classmates and caregivers - either structured or free social time, before parents
arrive to pick the children up. Fun activities may include walking barefoot in jello, playing in shaving cream, goops and flubber. (No child is forced to do any activity they do not feel
comfortable with.) Our budding scientists will learn through experiments. Building materials, playdough, kinetic sand, fine motor and sensory areas, books, games, puzzles, toys (inclusion
and interaction are encouraged) are all used during free play. Field trips are taken throughout the year, parents welcome to join us.
