Did you know that learning a new language is beneficial for your child? Apart from developing the left hemisphere of the brain that controls math, language, and logic, it may also create exciting opportunities for your child (in the future). Sunrise Montessori School in Markham offers a French Immersion Casa Program for children between 2½ to 6 years of age. Our school environment facilitates conversations in French to help your child get him/herself “immersed” in the language. These French conversations ensure that the language becomes “hardwired” in your child’s brain. As the seats for this program are limited, we encourage you to contact us for enrollment or ask questions at the earliest.
We believe that education is a lifelong process, and our objective is to build a strong foundation that will prepare children for the journey ahead.
Why Choose French Immersion?
Our French immersion education provides non-francophone children with the opportunity to develop a high degree of proficiency in French. The knowledge of French is an added advantage in Canada as many jobs require fluency in both official languages. Also, a bilingual speaker is more likely to have a higher earning potential compared to his unilingual counterpart. In other words, it opens more doors for your child.
Some benefits are beyond the purely practical. Research suggests that students who learn a second language develop creative thinking skills and mental flexibility. So, French immersion students have a better chance of using more of their brain capacity.
Students who learn a second language have a higher probability of developing a facility for learning more languages. Knowing a second language is advantageous in many ways from cognitive, problem-solving enhancements to simply being able to communicate more effectively.
