French Language Immersion + Montessori Preschool
PEI is conducted entirely in French providing an immersion environment where young children are able to absorb a language very quickly. Immersion is required for developing fluency in a language, which does not occur simply through taking classes.
PEI follows the Montessori philosophy and curriculum, focusing on the development of the whole child. This approach allows each child to advance at their own pace, and fosters independence and a love of learning. Students are involved in a wide variety of activities, such as art, music, gardening, yoga and cultural celebrations from all over the world.
Learning another language at an early age has far-reaching benefits including higher test scores (both verbal and math) and stronger problem solving and linguistic skills. PEI’s approach respects each child's learning style, personal growth, tastes and culture, and maximizes each child's ability to work to their potential. We believe combining language immersion and Montessori provides a unique, enriching, high quality environment that will establish a strong foundation for students' lifelong learning.
