Our philosophy

We would like our school to be like a family with children of different ages.

At Nectarine, pupils can enjoy life and follow their own interests. We encourage autonomy and trust in the children. We believe that they enjoy learning and do not need formal teaching. Just as a baby learns to walk and talk without being taught, so a child can learn many things if the environment is stimulating.

There will be 2 full-time teachers in the classroom, one Native English Speaker and one Native French Speaker. Pupils can speak either language and some activities will be in English, others in French.

For reading and writing, they can choose the language they would like to learn first and then quickly learn to read and write in both languages
