Programs

Age 2 1/2 – 3

Our Age 2 1/2 -3 Program focuses on learning through play. The program promotes social, emotional, cognitive and physical development through developmentally appropriate, play based activities.

French language development is tailored to the child’s level of understanding and to his or her ability to communicate in French. Children who already speak French are provided with plenty of opportunities to converse with teachers and peers during a wide variety of fun and educational activities. Children being introduced to the French language for the first time are immersed in an environment rich in French language, text, songs and games that promote learning. Children soon become comfortable hearing the French language and begin to recognize frequently used French words.

Our Age 3 Program also promotes socialization. Children quickly become comfortable separating from parents and interacting with peers and educators in an age-appropriate and child-centered setting. A typical class involves free play, circle time, snack, small group activities, crafts and stories.

Our Age 2 /1/2 – 3 Program runs 2 days per week, two and a half hours per class.

Tuesday and Thursday
Mornings (9:00 am – 11:30 am) This class may be a blended 2 1/2 – 3 year old program.
Afternoons (12:15 pm – 2:45 pm) 3 year old program

For more information about our program we invite you to contact the Chairperson of Les Petits Pieds Preschool.


Age 4

Our Age 4 Program also focuses on promoting social, emotional, cognitive and physical development through age-appropriate, play-based learning activities. Children are introduced to a routine that will prepare them for their upcoming Kindergarten year.

A typical day involves free play, circle time, snack, small group activities, crafts and story time. These activities are tailored to promote the development of numeracy, literacy and fine motor skills in an environment that is fun and developmentally appropriate.

Children are immersed in the French language and are provided with many opportunities to listen to and speak the language. Learning is tailored to the child’s individual level of French. Children are encouraged to communicate using French vocabulary acquired throughout the year. Children quickly build confidence in their ability to communicate in French through daily exposure to and use of the language and build a strong foundation for future learning in Kindergarten.

Our Age 4 Program runs 3 days a week, two and a half hours per class.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Mornings (9:00 am – 11:30 am)
Afternoons (12:15 pm – 2:45 pm)

Your child is welcome to register in our Age 4 Program, even if they did not attend our Age 3 Program the previous year. Please note that children who attended the previous year get the first available spaces for the upcoming year. Any remaining spaces will then be filled by children registering for the first time.
