The Bilingual Program and School Readiness program offers children the opportunity to acquire French language comprehension and verbal skills. Both English and French will be spoken to the children.
Like the Pre-school Program, the Bilingual Program is held in four separate rooms each focusing on a different developmental area: gym room for gross motor skills, puzzle room for fine motor skills, art room for creative play and snack room. After circle time, the children are encouraged to spend time in each of the rooms exploring the activities that have been set out. According to the theme of the month, the décor and equipment in each room is refreshed.
