Application Examples (Major Sections)

District of Heart Pre-School French Recreational Programs

The District of Heart French population is rapidly growing. We currently have three immersion schools and one French school. Parents have expressed an interest in pre-school French recreational programs to provide their children with a bilingual cultural identity and ease their transition into immersion classes.

The project will run for four months and focus on providing activity-based opportunities for preschool-aged children. In a French speaking environment, the children will learn verbal and written language skills with an experienced instructor through scheduled activities, free play, song, dance and socialization.

The funds will allow us to increase our French resources material in our play and music library. In addition, we will organize social outings, which will increase French programs' visibility in the community. 

The French program will deliver high quality French programming for children, building French language foundations for children entering French or immersion elementary schools.

The program will give children the opportunity to learn basic French language skills as well as broaden their appreciation and understanding of the French culture. In addition, the program will stimulate children’s Francophone identity through music and arts.

The activities will focus on improving their cognitive and physical health through social activities. The program will provide a hub for Francophone and Francophile families to connect, and will enable the French-speaking community to increase its visibility. 

Reach class enrollment capacity of 10 children between the ages of three and five years old.

By the end of the session, children will be able to:

  • Identify a minimum of seven colors in French
  • Identify all four seasons in French
  • Identify a minimum of eight animals in French

Parents’ feedback will include children’s increased comfort and use of French at home.
