Le Petit Hibou Preschool in West Kelowna
West Kelowna French/English Non-Profit Preschool
Established in 2002, Le Petit Hibou is a non-profit preschool society located in West Kelowna. Le Petit Hibou Preschool offers children a welcoming, playful and stimulating learning experience to help prepare them for kindergarten. Our Preschool promotes a love of learning using play, song, crafts, and more. French vocabulary is woven into the daily routine so that the children can experience the differences in the languages and have fun trying out new words. We strive to create enthusiasm and a curiosity to learn French.
Our program promotes the uniqueness of each individual child by providing an environment that celebrates the acceptance and respect of differences. We achieve this by being flexible and adaptable to each child’s learning needs and following the guidelines within the Early Learning and Development Framework for children aged 3 to 5 years old. We also liaise with the educational staff within the schools where we are located, collaborating with elementary school staff to ensure the students’ readiness for kindergarten.
French is woven into the program through the monthly themes and daily routine. Our goals are for the children to hear the differences in languages, understand the words spoken and to enjoy repeating the sounds to create enthusiasm and curiosity to learn French
