Le CP – Kindergarten in the US – is a very important stage for a child. It is a direct path to autonomy.
Your child will learn to read, write and count on their own!
At Bilingual Bebe we are now opening CP and CE1 programs (in addition to our preschool programs) for your child to learn to read, write and count in French.
Here is a snapshot of our CP curriculum:
The goal for the year will be to learn to read but also “understand what I read”.
We encourage daily reading (letters, syllables, words, sentences and then text). Same as an athlete training for a competition, it’s all about training and repetition! Students will discover and learn one sound per week.
We use the syllabic method (méthode syllabique). The strong academic component ensures that children will learn one sound per week throughout stories and text that make sense to them and are easy to understand.
They’ll learn new vocabulary at every session throughout weekly themes. During each session we encourage a lot of interactions around story time and activities in connection with the themes.
As far as Math is concerned, many skills are expected at the end of CP: counting to 100, comparing, sorting, problem solving, measuring (meters, centimeters), weighing (kilogrammes, grammes), calculating etc. We follow the French National Education programs (les programmes français de l’éducation nationale).
It is important to note that children will each have their own rhythm. What matters is regularity in learning and most importantly learning in a playful and engaging environment.
Keep the fun and learning going all summer with Bilingual Bebe’s summer in French programs.

Last week we celebrated La Chandeleur – a French tradition dear to us French people. La Chandeleur was initially celebrated as a Christian holiday known as Candlemas in English. Before becoming a Christian holiday, La Chandeleur was also a time when several pagan traditions would celebrate the approach of spring and the earth’s bounty.
Today, most of the French use La Chandeleur as an excuse to enjoy some crêpes!
We wanted to make an extra special for our students!
Our bilingual school director has decided to have a culinary event in French for our 3-12 year old students. We organized a cooking session with a French chef crêpier. Our Chef Adil owns a creperie in Connecticut: “rêpes Choupettes. He walked us through the best techniques to make a perfect crêpes batter.
There was a lot of batter eating from our little bilingual kiddos, and a lot of excitement flipping the crêpes but most of all eating them!
Parents were as excited as children. We learned about the fanciest crêpes one can do: crêpes aux coquilles saint Jacques / scallops. Our session was all about sweet crêpes though because we know our little ones have a sweet tooth. The super star in terms of topping for our little ones was sugar and lemon.
What is your favorite topping? Let us know if you want us to organize a « birthday cooking event for your child”.
Stay tuned for more enrichment and multicultural classes to come!
