Building 4: Preschool to Grade 1
We are very proud of our latest project, our Cambridge campus expansion, which includes the addition of a new 16,702 square-foot building next to our main facility. This new expansion will be welcoming our Maternelle and Grade 1 students in September 2019.
Maternelle, the French name for Preschool and Kindergarten, is a French Immersion program with 80% of its curriculum in French. It is organized into three distinct sections: Pre-Kindergarten (Petite Section) for children who will be three years old by the end of December; Mid-Kindergarten (Moyenne Section) for children who will be four years old by the end of December; and Kindergarten (Grande Section) for children who will be five years old by the end of December.
The aim of the music program in the Maternelle is to let the children play with their voice, to learn nursery rhymes and songs, to explore music instruments, to use their body as a way to make music, and to strengthen the children’s ability to listen.
Weather permitting, Maternelle students spend their morning and afternoon recess time on the playground, enjoying many physical activities thanks to the safe play structure especially built for the physical needs and enjoyment of the youngsters.
