JEU D'ENFANT is a recreational program that offers children the opportunity to learn the French language while playing in a preschool-like environment. Qualified instructors reinforce thematic learning through play and activities. Its primary objective is for children to learn the French language while they are playfully engaged with the other children and the instructors. No prior French knowledge required.
The children attending the program will get to play with their peers and make new friends. They will learn how to follow rules, how to behave in groups and how to interact with each other. The setup is similar to a preschool, with tables and chairs, circle time, drop-off and pick-up schedules. No academic curriculum is followed but instead bi-weekly themes are explored. This is a hybrid program that brings the best of both worlds together. The creative atmosphere fosters the learning process through free play and other activities such as circle time, crafts, games, story-time, music, and other elements. A variety of activities will help to develop motor and social skills.
The highest instructor:children ratio ever allowed is 1:8. The maximum number of children attending the program is set to 24 per class with 4 instructors on site.
What to bring: A water bottle, a snack and a change of clothes.
Children should be toilet trained and comfortable participating without a parent.
Our qualified instructors possess experience in children care, in addition to great academic backgrounds. They are native French speakers. Each go through an extensive background check. Our instructors are also parents who understand a child's unique situation and needs. You can trust them to care for your most precious treasure.
