Extra-Curricular Activities

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities complementary to our core Montessori curriculum.
The extra-curricular activities take place on our premises on Wednesdays from 8.30 to 6.30 pm.
These activities are meant for children’s school only.

Yoga

The benefits of yoga:

  • Develops balance, flexibility and dynamism
  • Improves concentration and attention
  • Cultivates confidence and openness to others
  • Encourages creative expression and imagination
  • Awakens the sense of respect for one-self and others

Music

The objective is to develop their musical sensibility through various activities.

Through songs from a traditional repertoire, children have the opportunity to work on articulation, memorization and interpretation.
Using audio and video materials, children learn to recognize different musical instruments and classify them (woodwinds, strings, percussion). Older children learn to recognize different types of orchestration (jazz, symphonic, variety, etc ….)
In each course, the rhythmic work is done with sensorial materials, different music styles and body movements.

Theater

Theatre activities are designed for children aged 3 to 6 years old.

Each session consists of group games introducing basic theatre techniques and improvisations. Each workshop begins with breathing exercises, body language activities and work in space.
Through improvisation, children learn to present themselves to others, to be seen and heard.

Ateliers Arts et Matières

picture16Cet atelier est ouvert pour les enfants de 2 à 6 ans.
Il permet aux enfants de découvrir d’une manière artistique et ludique le pouvoir de la création tactile.

Au cours de leurs progressions, mêlant couleurs et matières diverses (fusain, peintures, argile, plâtre etc.), leurs cinq sens sont constamment mis en éveil.

Pâtis’ School

With real cooking equipment and fun recipes, children will discover the joys of cooking by learning to make their own pastry masterpieces (madeleines, cupcakes, muffins, pancakes, etc..). At the end of the workshop the children will have the opportunity to enjoy their cooking together as they share a snack.

Beautiful Minds

picture17Our workshop Beautiful Minds offers children a fun and exciting introduction to the sciences.

During the workshop, the young researchers conduct their own experiments with scientific and educational materials.

The workshop is conducted by the host scientist who encourages children to observe and describe phenomena and suggest explanations.

The scientific method tests hypotheses by conducting experiments and observing the results. This scientific approach develops children’s critical thinking ability and is very useful in everyday life. Children are encouraged to develop their thinking, their argumentation and reasoning with pleasure and curiosity.
