Fun With French Preschool
Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta

Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  Does my child need to know French before attending, or come from a French speaking home?

A. No your child doesn’t need to speak French to attend our program.  In fact, most of our families are not       bilingual.  Our program is designed to be an introduction to the French language.  Because it is not an immersion program, children and parents can feel comfortable during this time of learning.

Q.  Can I volunteer frequently?

A. Yes, you can.  We do our best to ensure that all parents are given the opportunity to volunteer in the classroom.. There is also a sign-up sheet in the classroom if you are free to volunteer "last minute" in the event that the Teacher/TA is ill or absent. Please note, due to our licensing regulations no siblings are allowed to attend our classes.

Q. Who do I advise if I will be having another family/friend picking up my child that is not on the authorized pick-up list?

A. Please contact the board by email or call (780) 716-7678.

Q. Do we take field trips?

A. We do a variety of in and out of class field trips throughout the year. We require a parent or adult to attend all out of school field trips with their child.
