100% French Preschool and Primary School
L'école welcomes all children regardless of their French background.
I wanted to also share feedback with you that we could not have been happier with the after school program that we have done this past year with Alex. The program was exactly what we were looking for in that it allowed the children to continue to develop and grow in their French language and vocabulary while learning very interesting and engaging nature topics. Alex provided the perfect amount of engaging learning (the children were fascinated by all the interesting facts about the topic they learned each week), reading, writing, drawing, while still making the class fun and interesting. As I have mentioned to you in the past, my children will not be going back into a French curriculum in the future and for us, the standard 1st grade curriculum of grammar, reading, writing was not what we were looking for and not a good fit for us. We have absolutely loved this class because my children could still learn French but from a different angle. Each week was focused on a different nature topic and they learned so much and had so much fun. Alex overall has been nothing but kind and supportive of their growth within the French language and as children learning about the world around them. We would have continued in a program like this but as I said, now that the children are older they are more involved in other after school sports and activities and we just don’t have time for after school French.
I wanted to share my feedback with you on how wonderful the program has been and I truly hope it is something that can be offered in the future for other families who may be in similar circumstances as us regarding their goals and objectives for French learning.
'The teachers are excellent! They do a great job with the kids and the curriculum is very strong and age appropriate.'
Our family loves this school! My son started the year with tears and now he runs to the door to start his day! The teachers take great care to teach the children songs and other age appropriate skills! Yes, he comes home and shares what he learned in French! My husband is a native French speaker and he is impressed at the gains in such a short period of time.'
'We have attended L'ecole for a few years (Baby and Me, then the preschool). Our son's French has exploded and he is now speaking full sentences in French. The curriculum is very strong (letters, numbers, patterns, math, writing). We will continue with the preschool until our son goes to kindergarten and will enroll in after school or Saturday classes after that!'
'We love L'Ecole ! Our family is french speaking so it was very important for us to find a french immersion preschool. We also love that the culture is reinforced, something important to us. Love the hours ( not too early start which is great) and the fact that they eat lunch there together, meals being an important factor in the french culture. Affordable and great staff! Our son loves his teachers! He has grown so much since he started 4 months ago we definitely see the results at home from all the work they do with them at school. Only gave it 4 stars because the facilities are not great and we wish it was closer to the RTP. But right now the rest beats the facilities and the commute for us! Totally worth it !'
February is always festive at L’Ecole! We kicked of the month with the celebration of “La Chandeleur”, or Candlemas, a traditional holiday in France. The students very much enjoyed eating delicious crêpes! The festivities continued on Valentine’s Day with crafts galore and a special pizza lunch shared by all. And just this week, the children...
We ended the first semester on the joyous notes of our traditional “Holiday Show”. Children sang, proud parents cheered, and snacks and hot beverages were shared by all. This tradition is dear to our hearts as it showcases many of the skills our young students have been working hard on. It was also, for many of our...
