Maternelle is aimed at children aged 4-5yrs old. This class is conducted entirely in French and is aimed at native speakers. However, fluency is neither required nor expected at this age. Most importantly your child should demonstrate a good understanding of the French language and have a native speaker at home to reinforce what is learned in class.
At this age children can often be reluctant to speak in a foreign language, especially if they spend most of their day speaking English in preschool and with friends. Therefore, we place a heavy emphasis on oral work and acquisition of vocabulary through songs, games, stories, written activities and crafts.
This class is from 9:30am to 12:00pm.
