Welcome to Almost French Kindergarten!

About us
Almost French kindergarten was founded in 2016 and is designed for children between 3 – 5 years old.

The program is run by qualified and experienced dynamic French teachers.
All teachers are VIT registered, first aid trained and hold a valid Working With Children check.
We have three passionate French educators per class which is above the child/staff ratio for kindergarten programs (1/11).
We offer a licensed funded kindergarten program, which follows the guidelines of the Victorian early years learning framework (VEYLF), the National Quality Framework (NQF)and the French Curriculum of ‘petite et moyenne section of maternelle’.

How we teach
We offer a French immersion program.

Children learn French through fun and challenging activities. We have a busy program which includes cooking, sport, art & craft, singing, a variety of games, multimedia and plenty of activities to develop literacy and numeracy skills… all in French! We pride ourselves in offering a safe and caring environment for your children and our program is designed to follow the children’s interests, therefore in constant evolution.

We also encourage the children to become more confident and independent in their daily life.

How we communicate
We monitor progress with individual portfolios and reports twice a year to parents (June and December) Your child’s milestones and competences will be outlined.

We believe in the importance of building strong relationships with parents and like to communicate on our learnings and activities through Storypark, an online platform where we post weekly updates, photos and important information about your child.
