Pre-school: Learning through play!

A unique pre-school cultural development program for children aged 3 to 5.

Through arts and crafts, music, drama, dance and creative games, your child will develop his or her creativity, self-esteem, imagination and motor skills in a bilingual environment.

Preschool program – Learning through play


Monday to Thursday: 9:00 to 11:30 a.m.
Mid-September to mid-May

A fun and creative lunch program is also offered between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Space is limited.


Arts and crafts
Monday to Friday

The teacher suggests various projects to the children that involve safe and stimulating materials: finger paints, clay, plaster, paper mâché, felt, modelling clay, etc.

Arts and crafts are an opportunity for children to discover shapes and colours. Children also work on their fine motor skills while developing their creativity. This programming includes 3D projects, individual projects, large murals and group models.

Mondays and Tuesdays

The teacher sings songs with the children that get them moving. A large collection of percussion instruments are also used for children to learn musical rhythm and notes.

Music helps children express their emotions and develop their language and social skills through group musical games. They will also discover a variety of musical styles and learn to recognize sounds from different musical instruments.

Mondays and Tuesdays

The teacher leads the children in role-playing games, storytelling and making up stories. Children learn to mime situations and show emotions while having fun and showing respect.

Drama helps children express themselves with their bodies, facial expressions and words. They discover other facets of their personality and have fun pretending to be different characters. Several props are also used to stimulate their imagination and change their “look.”

Wednesdays and Thursdays

The teacher explores creative movement with the children as the ideal prelude to the different types of dance. Several musical styles, including classical, pop, traditional, world music and other styles, are used. Children are sometimes guided in their dancing, but sometimes are not so they can let the music guide them and let their imagination soar.

Dance helps children feel comfortable with their bodies. The variety of activities, role-playing games and other games help them develop overall motor skills. Materials are also used to help get them moving, like a tunnel, exercise balls, circuits to help them develop their balance, and hula-hoops.

Creative games
Wednesdays and Thursdays

The teacher shows the children how fun it is to play together, cooperate, compete and discover a wealth of practical information (numbers, letters, seasons, etc.).

Creative games prepare children for the grown-up world and expose them to the fun of learning about various subjects, such as reading, the library, geography, the environment, cooking, science and astronomy. The activities help them expand their horizons by exposing them to a second language, improving their vocabulary, peaking their interest in science experiments and getting them to cooperate and share. A short period of free play takes place after this workshop.

Violin and flute program

Suzuki Method

Founded by Japanese musician and teacher Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, the Suzuki method is based on the mother tongue approach: music is learned the way language is learned. Neither language nor musical abilities are inherited, and the potential of every child is unlimited. The Suzuki method aims to create a stimulating environment that will awaken a child’s desire to play an instrument. A parent’s participation is vital to the development of the child’s natural talent. Parents are asked to attend class and supervise home practice.

No musical background is necessary.

With Catherine Merklinger, Sallyee Amawat, Alexandre Desjeunes and Sylvia Niedzwiecka

September 2018 to May 2019 (31 sessions)
