At Les Petits Crayons - Bilingual Preschool, French and English-speaking teachers team up with child-care specialists. Together, they are committed to guiding children based on their individual needs, in all areas of their development.
We are committed to teaching in small groups. Depending on the time of the day, one adult will supervise between 7 and 10 children:
1 adult for 1-7 children in the Bilingual Nursery Program,
1 adult for 8-10 children in the Preschool Program.
Other professionals will complement the educational team to offer specific bilingual enrichment activities: music, dance, drama, etc.
