French Immersion is designed for all students and all types of learners.
Kindergarten and Grade 1 are the two points of entry for French immersion. No knowledge of French is required for these entry points.
Formal English Language Arts instruction begins mid-Grade 2. In kindergarten and grade one, students receive all of their instruction apart from Religion in French. Students will gradually build their French vocabulary and proficiency through routine activities, play-based projects, songs, gestures and visual aids.
As students continue in the French Immersion program, they will achieve a high level of French proficiency, while continuing to develop English language skills.
Yes! French Immersion is geared towards non-French speaking families. Your child will be introduced to the French language through songs, games, repetition and play. All communications between the school and parents will be in English.
