Early Childhood Education
The French educational system is renowned for its program in early childhood education, the Maternelle. At the age of 2 or 3, in a warm and nurturing environment, children begin to learn and socialize while acquiring the building blocks needed for future academic success in French and in English. The approach is interdisciplinary and project oriented using an overall theme in which the various disciplines such as logical thinking, mathematics, communication, oral and written skills, relation of the body in space through physical education are brought together in a way that is both stimulating and fun. Children are encouraged to discover and explore in a structured, yet open atmosphere that facilitates and inspires learning at this young age. It all starts in the Maternelle!
