A rich learning environment with much to explore and discover is combined with a program to further the development of the TOTAL CHILD (cognitive, educational, social, emotional
Such a program and environment is based on the beliefs that:
The program at Royaume des Enfants provides periods of independent play, both indoors and out, as well as educational activity in art, music, drama, fine motor, gross motor, language development, science and mathematics.
We plan special field trips, and outings to give emphasis to particular interests and areas of study. Educators plan programs around specific weekly or bi-weekly central themes.
A copy of each educator’s weekly program schedule is available to parents on the educator’s bulletin board or upon request.
Our Immersion program is an excellent opportunity to introduce your child to a second language at an early age when the ability to assimilate new sounds and vocabulary are at a high level. The skills taught include: listening, following directions, pronunciation, memory, self-expression, pre-reading and the ability to link sounds to their source.
Royaume des enfants offers a warm and nurturing environment. The teachers have been part of the school for many years and it shows in the quality of their programs. My children have lively conversations about what they’ve learned and done at the Royaume. Amazingly, every new day is more exciting than the last. It has truly been a blessing to find such a wonderful place where my children can learn and grow. It’s no wonder the school has been around for 30 years!
My three and a half year old daughter is currently attending her 2nd year at the Royaume des Enfants Preschool. I was referred to this wonderful place by a fellow mom whose two children were lucky enough to have received their preschool education at Royaume and who literally raved about it. She spoke of a structured yet nurturing environment, with genuinely enthusiastic and dynamic teachers. I must say that everything she said was absolutely true and I now have even more to add to the list of attributes of this fine preschool. I must begin with the teachers, whose dedication to the well-being and development of each child is both impressive and heart-warming. They are creative, engaging and always inspired. Each teacher has clearly been meticulously chosen by Diane Kirschner (head of school for the last 25+ years, whose own enthusiasm for her work has clearly never waned), as the embodiment of the school’s child-centered philosophy of early education. Next I must speak of the school programs, which are detailed for the parents with a view to ensuring every aspect of your child’s development. The teachers are always available to discuss your child’s needs, progress and general well-being. I have complete confidence and peace of mind knowing that my daughter is growing and thriving in this exceptional environment. As if this weren’t enough, their extra-curricular activities include a ‘green thumbs’ class, a cooking class and yoga class, among others, all of which my daughter wants to sample. It’s no wonder she heads off to school every morning with a great big smile on her face, as do I.Lydia
So far, I’ve sent 3 of my children to the Royaume des Enfants, and I can’t wait to send my 4th child next year as well! I’ve had only great experiences with this fantastic bilingual nursery school! The teachers are very warm and experienced, which really introduces the school system in such a positive way! My children are all different, some are more reserved than the others, but by the time they reached kindergarten, they loved learning and going to school! I can thank the excellent program and staff of the Royaume for this! Moreover, their bilingual program made my children start kindergarten without any difficulty in French, even though we are more Anglophone at home! I love this school that is so warm for our little fragile sponges!
