General School Mission

The main objective of the Preschool is helping each child to become independant and acquire knowledge and skills. Each child must acquire a rich oral language, organized and understandable by others. The goal is to give the child all the foundation for success in Kindergarden through the full French language immersion. Children will work towards total fluency in French as well as as their overall early childhood development.
Our comprehensive curriculum is based on France’s internationally renowned école maternelle, developed by the French Ministry of Education. This system is recognized as one of the world’s best, giving children a solid academic foundation in a warm, nurturing environment.
