While adhereing to the knowledge and skill requirements of French National Education, The Garden Academy has designed its own teaching program by mixing two complemetary curriculums: The American school program which favors group work and conversation practice, and French school curriculum. Within each grade level, children acquire skills in mathematics, enrich their vocabulary, develop their oral expression, foster their imagination and creativty, fine tune their motor skills as well grow their physical abilities. From the start of Kindergarten, children are introduced to phonological awareness, and work on building their early childhood literacy. This follows the American education system wheras the introduction of this learning starts later in the French education. In the Garden Academy school program, teaching methods never favor competition between students, but place emphasis on the individual learning of each child with the aim of developing their full potential gradually in a positive learning environment. The aim is always to prepare them for their educational future and beyond.
