This 10 week program offered by le Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario in partnership with Our Children, Our Future, enables preschool children to develop French language skills while supporting families who wish to create a stronger French home environment.
Paul et Suzanne, a French-language development model, is approved by the Departments of Education in most Canadian provinces as curriculum support material appropriate to the needs of early learners in French-language schools and in French-immersion classes.

How will this program benefit me and my family?
Children sometimes come to us knowing very little or no French. Some have never heard French spoken before. This presents a new challenge to francophone school boards and their schools’ administrators and teachers. Language development programs must accommodate the needs of all children entitled to schooling in French. The challenge is a similar one for early immersion programs.
The Paul et Suzanne learning program meets the challenge while addressing all of the child’s developmental needs.
