Why Choose an Immersion Program?

The benefits of learning a second language at an early age are monumental. Below are just a few of the many reasons to learn a language:

- Sparks intellectual growth
- Enhances verbal and mathematical problem solving
- Stimulates creativity
- Augments understanding of one's language
- Facilitates learning additional languages
- Fosters international friendships
- Promotes cultural awareness and acceptance
- Expedites language requirements for school
- Increases career opportunities

Learning Languages at an Early Age:
Early childhood research has shown that the ability to learn languages is at its peak between birth and 6 years of age. Shortly after, the ability to learn a language quickly diminishes. This is largely due to neurological changes occurring during this critical period.

The brain of a young child has twice as many connections, called synapses, than an adult. If these synapses are not refined and strengthened, they disappear through a process called pruning and can never be reestablished. Therefore, a young child's mind figuratively "soaks up" information and can easily learn not only one, but several languages.

Teachers:

Our teachers are native French speakers participating in a teacher exchange program. Their academic preparation is very extensive as preschool/kindergarten teachers in France undergo rigorous schooling before obtaining the equivalent of a Bachelor's degree and finally attending graduate school for Early Childhood Education and specializing in teaching children from ages two through ten.

Our teachers nurture children into becoming life-long learners, instilling in them a love for reading and self-confidence while encouraging exploration and curiosity of their environment and our multi-cultural world. Additionally, they share their rich history, culture and language with them.

French Kindergarten / Pre-School Program: 

Our course consists of five general domains:
1. Socialization
2. Language (Spoken and Written)
3. Environment Discovery
4. Motor Skills
5. Creative Arts

These five domains are incorporated into thematic units, which explore a variety of stimulating topics consisting of age-appropriate, engaging activities.

Parent Involvement:


Cercle des Parents:
Through our parent association, Le Cercle des Parents (Circle of Parents), we invite all parents to come together and organize fun activities and events for the entire school. Parent are encouraged to participate and bring ideas.
