OUR SCHOOL

La Maternelle offers a warm, nurturing environment for ALL. Children don’t have to speak a word of French to join our program. Our French immersion setting helps motivate and guide young children in becoming confident, independent, caring, and reach their full potential.

La Maternelle

Our preschooler’s well-being, happiness, academic success, social & emotional learning, creativity, and language development are at the core of our learning model. Our home-based preschool creates an ideal atmosphere for self-growth and learning. Through play, exploration, art, music, and more kids will develop a solid foundation of learning. 

 

Did you know French is the fifth most spoken language with more than 274 million speakers? Children can learn a foreign language easier at a younger age. It has to do with the way their brain’s develop in the early stages of life. From the first day of school to the last, our classes are taught using French immersion. We use a combination of visual and verbal learning techniques when interacting with students, so they’ll begin understanding and speaking French right away.
