EDUCATION PROGRAM

We incorporate a thematic approach to our program by using rhymes, songs and stories as teaching tools to aid in the development of your children’s language, communication and socio-emotional skills that further contributes to their harmonious development. These themes are always complimented by a fine motor art and sensory activity to further strengthen the theme. Our program is taught in English and French and the school year is divided into two programs. The regular program begins in September and finishes at the end of June and our summer camp programs runs from July to August.

NURSERY 6-18MTS


Singing traditional lullabies and nursery rhymes to babies and infants before they learn to speak, is "an essential precursor to later educational success and emotional wellbeing….. Lullabies, songs and rhymes of every culture carry the 'signature' melodies and inflections of a mother tongue, preparing a child's ear, voice and brain for language." Sally Goddard Blythe The Genius of Natural Childhood
