From preschool to grade 8, students take French language studies with teachers Bree Tibble and Elizabeth Champagne.  All programs feature the four language learning skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Second language learning is intended to broaden the student’s mind through exposure to another culture and to a different way of viewing our world as expressed through language. 

Preschool/Kindergarten programs use music and art to introduce children to the French language.  The grades 1 to 8 French programs are activity-based, student centred programs that are intended to foster a positive attitude towards learning French.  The programs consist of Image 1 & 2 for the grades 1 to 2, Visage 1, 2, 3 for grades 3 to 5 and Passage 1, 2, 3 for grades 6 to 8.  Each program provides a foundation of skills that continues to grow throughout the student’s Montessori education. 

The program objectives are:

We aim to nurture these objectives by providing a solid foundation on which students will build throughout life.
