Learning French will be explored with the use of the Paul et Suzanne's Curriculum. Saratoga French Cultural Preschool acquired the permits from the editors of this curriculum, which is designed especially for preschool children to develop and facilitate French Language acquisition. Paul et Suzanne will help your child develop social skills and learn how to interact in a group setting.
The Saratoga French Cultural Preschool teachers will use the well- recognized Francophone program, Brindami la souris.
The Brindami program focuses on the development of social skills and self-control in children 2 to 5 years. The children learn through workshops that aim to develop social skills and self-control through a little playful mouse named Brindami. The children will be able to practice the skills learned from Brindami throughout their day.
1. Talking With Friends
2. Asking From and Responding to Friends
3. Being Happy
4. Being Sad
5. Being Angry
6. Recognizing Emotions
7. Taking Turns
8. Listening to Others
9. Staying Calm
Parent involvement is also an important component of our program. The Brindami program explains how parents can help. Parents are provided with information about each workshop and how they can help their children at home with Brindami. The combination of learning at school and home reinforcement will give the children the optimal chance of developing the skills that are taught throughout the program.
Various Ethnic Cultures
The Five Senses
Learning happens in a variety of ways, and since each child is unique, we use a variety of techniques to ensure that every child is successful. Circle time, music, and arts and crafts are just a few ways this is accomplished. There will also be times when we incorporate special activities that go along with the selected themes, including field trips and "Montre Et Raconte" ("Show and tell").
