Programme préscolaire

Preschool Program


French Immersion Program

Starting in Pre-kindergarten until Grade 2, our students have all of their subjects in French with the exception of English Language Arts at the Grade 1 & Grade 2 (2022-23) level.  The program aims at developing the mastery of French literacy, numeracy and provides early exposure to the French language and culture.

From Grade 3 to Grade 6, students follow a bilingual program where they receive half of their instruction in French and the other half in English.

Media and Technology

This program provides our students with 21st Century Skills such as creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration as well as increasing Digital Literacy Skills. The program is designed to progress from a general overview of how to operate media devices to a specific examination of the different forms of media including computer programming (Coding), Robotics (offered at lunch time) as well as becoming familiar with the etiquette and ethics of Internet (Internet Safety & Cyber bullying).


The robotics program introduces students to basic programming and hands-on building skills. The robotics program helps students learn how to implement the latest technology and creativity to create robots that are related to their challenge. Students work together in small teams to create, build, program and present their findings. Learning about different subjects through the use of robotics, is proving to be a popular method of learning for students.

Science Technology Engineering Arts Math (STEAM)

STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

STEAM allows students to take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. In essence, STEAM allows our students to become learners of the 21st century!

Italian Program

Children shall be offered integrated Italian instruction to acquire interpersonal communication skills in a third language.  They will discover and foster appreciation for the Italian cultural heritage, as well as to develop language proficiency which in turn, will improve their performance in other subjects.


Through an integrated remedial program, the focus is on the students' strengths as well as their areas for improvement. Certain students might benefit from an Individualized Educational Plan, which is developed to identify students’ needs and outline their individual goals and objectives.

Physical Education and Health

Children shall be motivated and encouraged to become health-conscious individuals. They will become well informed on body awareness and taught the importance of physical fitness and good nutrition as key components of a healthy lifestyle.
