After School Language Club

An opportunity for children ages 5-12 to enjoy after-school enrichment in French!

This time will include playtime, snack time, hands-on activities, and much more, entirely in French!  Language Club is available daily from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.  Parents have the option to enroll their children for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days a week.  Transportation is available for an additional fee.

Children who wish to begin or expand their language abilities (children from early immersion programs, children of native French speakers, or children who have come to love the French language through other means) will benefit from interactive and hands-on communicative lessons.
