The specificities of our teaching methods

Bilingualism in immersion: School curriculum delivered by English-speaking and French-speaking teachers. The children learn the language progressively, without using translations or pure language lessons.  Children are learning English or French by repeating daily activities with an English or French-speaking educator who only speaks his or her native language.

Initiation to new technologies: A external specialist comes in every Wednesdayduring the school year to carry out on-screen programming activities with the children that have been invented and selected purposefully to initiate your children to technology, coding, and language (mainly Scratch programming language) These activities also foster the development of many more skills: the ability to apprehend abstract concepts, to solve problems, to think logically, mathematics, and vocabulary.

Teaching workshops: The theoretical classroom learnings are systematically applied in the workshops  

Evaluation: Individual support and monitoring of each child. 3 annual reviews per year with each family

Teaching programme

The school allows each child to fulfil his or her own potential thanks to our individual approach. Since not all children have the same needs at the same time, we must listen to them, pay attention to their needs, and take their own rhythm and personality into account. They can be involved in their own development through experiences they select themselves in a suitable environment.

“Explore to Learn», the educational programme of the school, fosters 4 key learning factors: Attention, active involvement, feedback, and knowledge reinforcement. It is based on an active learning method: the Montessori approach with activities divided into 4 themes (practical life, sensory life, mathematics and language) and many activities in science, art, cooking as well as concrete projects carried out by the children.

PRACTICAL LIFE

  • Development of global motor skills
    (motor skills exercises and team games for modern coordination),
    work on fine motor skills
    (exercises on gripping, preparing the hand to handling pencils)
  • Development of concentration
  • Understanding the codes of his or her culture
  • Developing social skills

Help me to do things by myself: becoming autonomous

SENSORY LIFE

  • Differentiating and identifying concepts by using all sensory abilities (touch, smell, etc.)
  • Abstract concepts materialised by setting them apart (by naming the concept), ranking them (comparison, grading), and generalising them (in their environment)
  • Accumulation of mental images (concrete representations of shapes, sizes, colours, etc.)
  • Refinement of the artistic sensibility
  • Help with orienteering in the immediate environment

Indirect initiation to botanic, geography, arts, history, sciences, language, and mathematics.

Specificity

Cooking Lab

For the children, the labs are real sources of creativity and ideas, their goal is to pique the interest of children and take them to a world of experiments and creations. They are an excellent mean to teach the fundamentals and offer the children an opportunity to discover a real activity with professional equipment adapted to their ages and abilities. 

The cooking lab initiates children to the preparation of basic recipes, it teaches children in a playful manner to count, write, name, measure, and use their fine motor skills. This workshop is a great teaching opportunity, it fosters exchanges, sharing, and concentration, while being very gratifying for children. It enables an approach to mathematics (weight, size, time), to sciences (mixes, cooking, transformation), to language (recipes and culinary terms) and to culture (regional and international cuisine, the history of recipes, the origin and diversity of ingredients).
