Class Times
We offer two separate French immersion programs: Annee 1 (Year 1) and Annee 2 (Year 2). Each class has a maximum of 20 students, along with a minimum of one teacher and one teacher's aide. All programming is created by certified French Immersion teachers. Children attend preschool 2 - 5 days per week, according to the following tables.

To be eligible for the Annee 1 class, your child must be three years old by December 31st and fully potty-trained.

To start in Annee 2, your child must also be fully potty-trained and be eligible to go to Kindergarten in September of the following year (for Kindergarten, your child must turn 5 by December 31st of the school year they start).

To respond to a need in high demand at Campbelltown School (the French Immersion elementary school down the street), we will now be offering classes for 4 AND 5-year-olds combined in the afternoons. Kindergarten students registered in morning schooling will have the opportunity to be picked up from Kindergarten at Campbelltown by our staff, walked the 6-minute walk to the preschool at Sherwood Heights, supervised for the eating of their lunches brought from home, and then offered afternoon programming, combined with 4-year-old preschool registrants. Afternoon classes will never have any repeated programming during the week.

** Please note that Kindercare families are still required to commit to all parent involvement expectations of preschool families, as outlined in Parent Info AND, in order to attend five afternoons per week, Kindercare students are registering in TWO preschool classes (Annee 2C [Mon/Wed/Fri afternoons] and Annee 2B [Tues/Thurs afternoons]) and are therefore required to commit to double expectations. A special parent orientation meeting for Kindercare families is held in June and will outline options to opt out of snack and cleaning days via a monetary alternate.

As a point of interest, we also run an out of school care program from the gym at Campbelltown School for 90 students in Kindergarten to Grade 6. Assuming there is room available, we will also be offering the option for Kindergarten students attending afternoon preschool with us at Sherwood Heights to be walked back to Campbelltown School at the end of preschool, to join the out of school care program for childcare from 3:00 - 6:00pm. The same can be said for before school care, where Kindergarten students can be dropped to our program before school, for breakfast and supervision, then dismissed to their Kindergarten class. Please note that ONLY Kindergarten students, and not preschoolers, are eligible for this additional before and after school care option due to licensing regulations. Please visit the out of school care for more information about also registering in this program.
