Arc-En-Ciel is a unique French Immersion Preschool and Kindergarten program. Children absorb a language rather than they learn it. The school offers a warm and friendly environment reinforcing the students' creativity and developing their imagination while facilitating the academic learning process. The program is similar to the curriculum taught in Preschool in France. Teachers are French native speakers. The school will expand the program to 1st grade as early as Fall 2000. Accreditation by the French Ministry of Education is expected sometime in 2001. Registration is already open for Fall 2000 (children up to seven). Call Veronique NoÎl.
