Approach to Learning
Maternelle: Explore the world in a creative and caring environment.
The Maternelle curriculum is designed to prepare your children for the Lower School by encouraging them to exercise their gross- and fine-motor skills and develop their unique capacities.
The program teaches children to live together while developing their own personnalities. Children learn to become students and take an active role in their education.
The Maternelle curriculum incorporates the academic program of the French government, as well as the Massachusetts Common Core pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten standards.
