Becoming bilingual ...
a few facts !
Did you know that there are more bilingual people in the world than there are monolingual people ?
According to the Associated Press, 66 % of the children in the world are raised to speak two languages — but only 6.3 percent of the children in the U.S. are.
Start now ! Research indicates the earlier, the better. From birth, infants are primed to learn language, they have the ability to hear and produce the sounds of a second language without any accent, but this ability begins to drop off as children get older.
That's why preschool is the perfect age for your children to start another language effortlessly !
At Petit Paris, French language will be incorporated throughout the day, during circle time, snacks, and activities.
Petit Paris is a quality learning environment that puts the student's need first. In order to offer the best quality teaching, the class size won't exceed 6 students at one time. Small group teaching will allow me to individualize instruction, provide meaningful and prompt feedback, and better evaluate student's progress.
Theme based curriculum
This method of teaching links curriculum strands and capitalizes on children’s interests, creating a sense of purpose and community in the classroom. Thematic units greatly enhance learning because they integrate different intelligences and topics into a single lesson which mirrors how young children actually learn.
I will integrate literacy, science, social studies, math, music, and art all around the theme through directed activities and free play thanks to the various interest centers.
That means that one month the theme is space, next month will be China or how does my body work, etc.
It makes learning and teaching a lot of fun for the children...and myself !
From the moment your child steps into Petit Paris, she/he will hear and speak French. This is the immersion technique. Language immersion is a language acquisition technique where the learner is “immersed” in a second language. They develop language skills by socializing with other learners and speaking, writing, reading and listening to the second language in a classroom environment.
Your child will, in a stress-free environment, discover French language through songs, story telling, games; etc, but also learn new things IN French, like math, science or geography..
