Our Franco-Kids program specifically addresses the children of French expats who speak French at home as a second language of communication. It aims at promoting the use of the French language by children attending local schools as well as those who went to a French school in a recent past.
The objectives of our courses are to maintain the necessary scholastic knowledge and savoir-faire necessary to join the French education system and to support French language as a medium of cognitive growth and personal development for genuine cross-cultural children.
From preschool to elementary levels, children are taught by qualified French teachers who will help them to control gradually the main steps of oral and written language acquisition through observation, reflection, and the pleasure of learning.
