Philosophy: Using years of excellence in bilingual education, we have designed a unique program where children will learn French by doing. Research shows that an early start, teachers with native fluency, total immersion and practical experience are essential steps on the path to language proficiency. From experience we know that, if the enjoyment is there, the learning of the language will naturally take place.
Program: Our program revolves around fun, hands-on activities led by native French instructors that will stimulate the children’s conversation skills but also open them to the French and Francophone cultures. We welcome preschoolers as young as 3 years old, half day or full day, as long as they are potty-trained and ready for this wonderful adventure. In small groups, the children will hear and speak French all day through fun activities that will respect their rhythm. Quiet time is also scheduled. Our program for children in grades 1-5 will stimulate their conversation skills while exposing them to fun and unique activities such as French theater, Music in French with our artist-in-residence Julien Hucq, cooking, science and technology projects, dance and yoga, art, sports and more. One hour of French class per day for all campers.
