Starting from 2 years old, The Garden prepares children for school thanks to a supportive learning environment and highly qualified native English-speaking teachers.
England, the United States, Ireland, Canada: thanks to the team of qualified teachers all from English speaking countries, children learn much more than language at The Garden Academy. Children learn about different cultures, identifying accents, as well as familiarizing themselves with country specific festivals helping them to receive a truly international education! The English speaking environment allows children to assimilate concepts while becoming perfectly bilingual by mastering the official international language in all aspects.
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 whereas the introduction of this learning starts later in the French education.
At The Garden Academy school program teachers are trained in active pedagogy which aid children in gaining autonomy, as well as sharpen their critical thinking skills while progressing at their own pace.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.
Yoga sessions, mindfullness mediation session, gardening... we offter a wide range of practical life workshops but also embrace academic and artistic subjects. The teachers of the preschool program feed and nurture childrens curiosity through stimulating and positive experiences
Our program allows children to reach their full potential at an age where learning is at its peak. Our belief is that children are empowered individuals who emerge most easily through hands on experences in small group settings. Our pedagogies are active and influenced by Montessori and Frenit. Children at the Garden Academy will develop their motor skills, learn phonics, improve literacy and learn fundamental mathematical principles.
All languages are spoken on the scale of musical notes. In linquistics, we call this the sound spectrum. - our program places music and singing at the center of learning. By singing, listening to melodies or reproducing them, children equate the notes of this new language which in turn helps the improve their overall Englsih language level.
We offer our own curated learning programs and educational content. Your children will enjoy a year of discovery and excitement in an exclusively anglophone environment. This important first step in English language learning has been specifically designed for children aged 2-3 years old and follows the Montessori pedagogy.
This is a fundamental stage in the education of your child. Our program adheres to expectations set by the Education Nationale and is further supported by a strong foundation of personalised teaching. Our approach takes into account the importance of human emotions and creativity; it is Montessori-based and given principally in English.
Our multi-disciplinary approach guarantees a day full of enriching and lively activities that will provide children with positive learning experiences. Each workshop follows a different theme and is devised to spark children’s curiosity and make them feel more enthusiastic about learning English.
Our fully immersive English vacation camps take place during each school vacation period, from Monday to Friday, 8:30 to 18:20. With a new theme each week, our vacation camps provide an engaging learning environment whether as an introduction or to reinforce the English language. The themes are explored through various workshops including STEM, Music and Art as well as English classes.Read More
