I'm starting my search WAY early,since DD is only 2, but we'll be moving this year and purchasing property. I'd ideally like to be located in the right neighborhood for a good preschool and perhaps elementary school.

 

I'm looking for an English or bilingual preschool program, with full days, because I work FT. Once DD is old enough, I'd transition her to a French elementary school.

 

Suggestions anyone?

My son is almost 4. I don't know about schools, he goes to a milieu familial now. He will change to a pre maternelle program in Sept. But I would recommend immersing your little girl in a french program as soon as possible. You will be amazed how quickly she will pick it up! And it will be easier than trying to start when she is already elementary school age. Our son started at the french daycare when he was just under 2 and in only one month he was speaking. Now he is trilingual. I do know about this one place that offers lovely courses, its just a tad expensive. take a look ....www.thegreenschoolmontreal.com (I think its bilingual)

Maybe I was unclear in my last post...I want my daughter to learn English, since she is surrounded by French everyday...her daycare is TOTALLY French, and we speak French at home. I figured that putting her in an immersion situation when she is young might be beneficial.

 

I checked out the Green School but there's no mention whatsoever of their location...any ideas?
