Our children's garden overlooks the beautiful chateau of Saint-Nom-la-Bretêche. The chateau was originally part of the King Louis XIV domaine in 1700. It has recently been classified as a 'monument historique'.
Nos deux classes accueillent des enfants de 3 à 6 ans dans nos Maisons des enfants: "Cottage Children's House" et "Orangerie Children's House". Ces classes comportent:
There are two Children's House classes. One located in the cottage and the other in the Orangerie. Both classrooms are located on the ground floor and include several work areas among which include :
Les classes 6/9 et 9-12 ans ans sont situées dans l'Orangerie et au premier étage du Cottage.
The 6 to 9 and 9-12 elementary years old classrooms are located on the first floor of the Orangerie and the Cottage.
The elementary school includes :
La diversification se fait progressivement avec l'apprentissage de l'anglais. Au début, les enfants qui commencent leurs apprentissages en anglais se focalisent sur des thèmes plus simples. Les enfants plus aguerris en anglais à leur entrée dans l'école débutent directement avec des matières d'anglais, science et la géographie en anglais.
Children with a more basic level in the English language focus on developing their rudimentary language skills while also learning about science and geography. As each non-bilingual child's English skills develops, they will take on ever more challenging work.
Children who are fluent or bilingual in English deepen their knowledge and understanding of geography and science. They will further their creative writing abilities as well as oral and written comprehension.
Our English teacher will talk to each parent about whether your child is ready to take the English Cambridge exams and parents decide
whether they wish to have an end of year assessment of their child's English abilities or not.
La cours de récréation du Cottage est recouverte d'un revêtement drainant empêchant les enfants de se faire mal en tombant et de rentrer couvert de boue.
The Cottage children's garden has been entirely renovated with a synthetic surface. This has helped ensure the safety of the children and has been particularly effective at preventing the surface from getting muddy during the Winter months.
The Orangerie school gardens are used for pedagogical visits and exploration of the faune and flora. Apple trees, cherry trees, a kiwi vine, a frog pond, a sand pit and a rose garden can be found on the grounds of the Orangerie school gardens. The forest of Mareil-Marly is located just a short walk from the school.
