Our French Program
The Bilingual Montessori Schools of Boston and Sharon offer the aquisition of a foreign language to your children. Daily French classes are offered to children of all ages (Infants to Primary / Preschool). Proven studies demonstrate that children are better learners when they are engaged and are having fun. Children who are exposed to different languages early on in life develop profound linguistic awareness that they carry throughout their lifetime. Our French Directress provides them with a great wealth of confindence and vocabulary to speak French. Children who attend BMSB and BMSS from Infancy to Primary, master French as a second language.
Madame Catherine Pagnier, our French Directress has been teaching at our school for fifteen years. She holds an International Diploma in Early Childhood Education from France. Her expertise: teaching French to youngsters as a second language. Her teaching philosophy includes preparing the environment to make it fun and engaging for her students. Her curriculum is taught through practicing games, songs, books and visual movements. In addition, we have the right accessible and organized environment, the precise support structure allowing the children to learn French in a strong, logical order and gracious manner.
Subsequently, our classrooms (especially the Infant Program) includes French native speaking teachers who are able to solely speak French to your children, if you should desire so. Such daily routines and human interactions help support the children's development of the French language.
"The only language men ever speak is the one they learn in babyhood,
when no one can teach them anything" - (Dr. Maria Montessori)
