Preschool through Kindergarten curriculum adapts the French Ministry of Education’s official program to a bicultural and bilingual context. The preschool (Cycle 1) is a warm and caring place, a welcoming start to any child’s academic career. The pre-elementary curriculum centers on cultivating language skills and character development to prepare students to reach their fullest potential in elementary school and beyond. The overall goal is to allow children to grow in a nurturing 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 character development in a social context.

- Developing body and mind through physical education and artistic activities (dancing, singing, drawing, etc).

- Enhancing interest and natural curiosity through learning one-on-one, in small groups, and in large-group activities.
