FAQ

How do I login to the Parents’ Section on this website?

You will be given login information after you register. Please contact one of the educators.

How can I register during the summertime if the school is closed?

We are available by phone and email during the summer months. If you cannot get your registration in before the school’s closure near the end of June, you can submit payment via e-Transfer or PayPal. Registration forms can be emailed. ([email protected])

What if my child doesn’t know any French at all?

Many of our students are new to speaking French. Not to worry, our teachers know when it is appropriate to use French or English. We find that children are very quick to learn at this age, especially with comprehension!

My spouse knows French but I don’t speak it at all. I’m not sure how I feel about my child learning a language that I don’t know.

Many of our students have only one French speaking parent. Our educators are able to speak English with you and we offer translations wherever necessary. Most of our Board of Directors positions are open to English speaking parents as well! It can be fun to learn along with your child by reading French books and listening to French radio and helping them with new words they have learned! Click Here for more information!

Can my child only do drop-ins, rather than register on a consistent basis?

No – children need to attend a minimum of 2 days per week in order for them to set into a proper routine, feel comfortable at school, and develop better relationships. But most of all, they won’t be able to retain the French that they learn as well.
