Bilingual Senior Casa Classes

  • For children in their “kindergarten years”, our Senior Casa curriculum is delivered in both English and French using a bilingual Montessori model.

  • The language of instruction alternates during twice daily work periods.  The Montessori materials and approach remains the same, just the vocabulary differs.

  • Children in their first year of Senior Casa will focus their language studies on mastery of phonic word-building and reading first in English, while building French vocabulary and oral skills.  Once confidently working with the English phonetic materials, these skills are readily transferrable to French.

  • For children in their second year of Senior Casa, French instruction and assignments during the bilingual work period will be more robust to keep pace with their growing skills. 

  • Students will be prepared for the next steps in their academic journey, whether that be our Bilingual Elementary class, a French Immersion program, or an English elementary class with French studies resuming in grade 4.
