Even if I didn't particularly care about my children learning another language, the French School offers such a strong curriculum in such a nurturing environment it would still be my first choice. Our two children have thoroughly enjoyed the friendly learning environment and they have acquired beautiful French accents from their native-speaking teachers. This is an exceptional program and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to give their child a positive start to their education and broaden their cultural perspective of the world.
This school has a top notch program that really teaches children through a hands on approach. The projects they do are so unique and beautiful. I am so grateful to have such a stellar place for my daughter to attend preschool.
Two of my kids attend the French School in Winnetka and neither my husband or I are French speakers. I looked at many pre-K schools in the area (we live in Evanston) and all are "play-based." I may be old school, but my kids know how to play. I want them to get academic stimulation, even in preK and K. The French Shool offers both play based and academic learning beautifully. Both of my kids have excelled in the French School - learning a second language is going to help them in so many ways. The teachers are fantastic, the Directrice is no non-sense and runs the school very efficiently and the parents are very involved. I truly cannot say enough good things about the school. We will be sending our third child there as soon as he is old enough.
