Broaden your child’s mind. Learning a second language can positively affect many areas of your child’s life, such as enhance their cognitive skills in other schooling subjects, develop personal confidence and social skills mixing with other students, as well as giving them the opportunity to be introduced to another culture.

The opportunities that stem from speaking a second language are endless.

It’s important to exercise your mind and your body- while they’re young, their minds are like sponges!

Bring your child along to the fun, integrative French classes.

The classes are engaging using imagery, colour and games.
