NURSERY PROGRAM

Early childhood education is an essential step in your child’s journey to ensure ¬†¬†his / her academic success.

Our Nursery Program is designed to encourage a balance between child initiated and teacher facilitated activities stimulating each child’s natural curiosity and interest in learning. Both French and English languages are used. All of the activities provided are age appropriate and take into consideration the children‚Äôs attention span and need for variation in mediums. Their schedule is not rigid because young children are easily distracted or bored.

We have 3 programs based on your child’s age and maturity
