As the Principal of La p’tite école, I have the wonderful privilege of overseeing the education of our youngest learners. Our educators and I watch over and care for your children as they take big leaps toward learning, not just academically but in life.
Creating a warm and positive atmosphere, and a feeling of the school being their second home, is something I look forward to doing every single day.
As soon as you come to the school, you feel a positive energy – the children are enthusiastic, eager to learn and happy to be here. They come here with diverse backgrounds, and they all feel valued, known and appreciated. We provide care and guidance appropriate for very young children, who learn how to become students, and gain a solid foundation for a successful school experience.
My belief in an international education stems from my own experience as a student in Lebanon, France and finally in Canada. Since starting at TFS in 1995, I’ve watched the school deepen its connections with France and internationally, while teaching students who are truly diverse.
Our educators and early childhood educators, who are from Canada, France, Ukraine, Iran, Haiti, Benin and more, are dedicated to the well-being of our students. They are caring and passionate about educating such young students and instilling in them a love of learning.
Academically, your child is going to learn to ask questions and learn about everything from math, reading, writing, and social studies to physical education, music and visual arts. And beyond that, they have access to a wide range of technology – SMART Boards, iPads, and robotics – which are all used in an age-appropriate way and to enhance their learning.
What makes me so proud is the way our children learn to be leaders, and to work together to make the school their own and a better place for everybody. In their mentorship sessions, they learn about our values – respect, integrity, engagement, discernment – as well as responsibility, decision-making, and the many aspects of being an IB learner.
Students at La p’tite école also learn to take action, be positive leaders and give back. Every Grade 1 student has a leadership role. They run assemblies, MC many branch events, write a newspaper, fundraise to help others, and act as reporters for les nouvelles (the news) of La p’tite école.
At La p’tite école, we give your child a head start on learning and mastering French and English. They will become bilingual, they will have the foundations of an incredible education, and they will love their experience along the way. We will accompany them step by step in their journey.
