To provide a high-quality, play-based education to young children in an environment that encourages curiosity, problem solving, and autonomy.
Le Soleil School is committed to giving all children in our care the best advantages possible to succeed in life. Our French immersion program is designed to help achieve proficient bilingualism in children--something that research has shown to promote significant cognitive advantages (as well as the obvious benefit of speaking more than one language).
Beyond language acquisition, Le Soleil staff encourages the healthy cognitive, motor, social, and other development of children through developmentally-appropriate activities. Our focus is on supporting each child’s unique journey through their early life, in tandem with the child’s guardian(s), to give them the skills and confidence they need. Teamwork between those at home and those at Le Soleil is key to our success.
Our teachers come from all over the world. We have a diverse, multicultural staff that helps teach students from a young age about embracing and celebrating differences in background, experience, appearance, and ability. Staff members hail from Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, France, Rwanda, Switzerland, and the United States to form a team that leverages many different viewpoints to make the best experience possible for our students.
We believe in real experiences, not screen time. Aside from our optional once-a-month preschool movie night, screen time at Le Soleil does not exist. Be believe (and research shows) that learning in early childhood comes from engaging and interacting with the people, places, and objects around a child. Children need interpersonal interaction and big body movement for healthy development! That's why we're committed to providing a screen-free environment as part of our intentional environmental design, and it's why—despite the allure of its ease as a tool for busy, working families—we strongly recommend avoiding the use of screens like televisions, tablets, and phones at home, too. We, like you, want the very best for children in our care; they'll have plenty of time to watch shows and play video games when they're older!
