Our partner Pari-Grandir welcomes children after school on Wednesdays and during school vacations.
Created in 2011, Pari-Grandir is the first network of bilingual edutainment centers in France and our school shares the same values: the importance of bilingualism and the priority given to caring for children.
The extracurricular activities run by Pari-Grandir are open to the children enrolled in our school first. The Pari-Grandir team, composed of certified professionals, takes over from our pedagogical teams to welcome your children directly into our premises in small groups.
Enrollment in the After School Program Includes:
- Pick-up: Pick up of the children directly in the school
- A balanced and varied snack prepared by a nutritionist and offered in English
- Access to the “English Club” workshop (100% immersion) given every day after lunch by our English-speaking instructors
- Access to the cultural & artistic program (art, yoga, theater, music, science, etc…) developed by our French & English-speaking supervisors
- Games & activities in the neighborhood park (depending on the program and the weather)
The children are divided into two or three groups depending on their age. These groups can evolve according to the relationships and abilities of the children. For the activities intended for the different age groups together, different tasks will be entrusted to them for the realization of common projects.
Each week, families registered with Pari-Grandir receive the following week’s program directly by email, allowing them to follow their child(ren)’s activities. Every 2 months, families receive a secure link and a temporary password allowing them to view and download the memories of the past period via our dedicated photo site.
During the school vacations, Pari-Grandir becomes a real little leisure center. Thus, several fun activities (yoga, quizzes, theater, arts, etc…) are offered to the children in which they can only express themselves in English. In this way they learn English through the games as well as through the daily routine (meals, presentations, etc…).
As with the Wednesday program, these extracurricular activities are led by native English speakers and French speakers. Each speaker communicates with the children in his/her language only. English is learned through immersion, as much through games as through daily life.
