La Société de l’École des Petits Oursons Prématernelle is a non-profit society administered by a Board of Directors composed of parents of children attending the Preschool. Children are at the heart of all programs at Les Petits Oursons. We know they learn best through play, so we strive to provide many varied learning experiences through play and educational toys. Our goal is for children to develop their self-esteem and a positive attitude towards school and learning. A great preparation to Kindergarten!
Children exposed to French in preschool gives them a great introduction to learning a second language (or helps enhance their primary language of French) and also promotes Canada’s French culture. It’s never too early! Exposure to a second language at an early age not only aids in stronger fluency, but has been shown to benefit more on a cognitive level as well. Enhanced memory, critical thinking and problem solving skills are just a few benefits. Bilingual children also show higher standardized test scoring, including in Math and English!
Parents are encouraged to become Board Members or participate in board meetings. We also offer many other opportunities to volunteer!
