Cycles


Pedagogical Organisation


The school functions in two cycles. A cycle is composed of a time to explore, a time to perfect and a time to reinvest knowledge.
The children work in multi-aged classrooms. This social structure helps cultivate respect for others, inspires work and encourages sharing and helping.

  • Awakening Workshop:  welcomes children from 2 years of age.
  • Initiation Classroom welcomes children from 2½ years of age.
  • First Cycle welcomes children from 3½ to 6 years of age.
  • Elementary Cycle welcomes children from 6 to 11 years of age.

Wednesday English workshop for years 4-8

Every Wednesday from 9:30am until 12pm our English team proposes an English workshop in a dynamic environment. This includes a variety of both group and individual work which is as diverse as it is captivating.

Including singing, reading, manual activities, baking and various projects, the work is presented according to weekly themes which utilise the five senses.

By maintaining this natural approach, our experienced teachers can guide the child in discovering a new culture and language using repetition, action and memory.


For any information please contact us. Places for this workshop are limited.
