Discover the answers to the most frequently asked questions by parents about the bilingual preschool and primary classes at the Chardin bilingual school.

Can I enroll my child only in the morning?

Chardin bilingual school welcomes children on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:30 am to 4:15 pm and on Wednesdays, only in the morning until 11:30 am. For 2 and 3 year olds (in Montessori pre-kindergarten and in bilingual preschool), half-day registration is possible. “After-school" workshops are available on Wednesday afternoons and during the vacations for artistic and sports activities.

Are digital tools used at École Bilingue Chardin?

École Bilingue Chardin thus proposes the controlled and measured use of digital technology. It is neither an educational priority nor a taboo subject. It's just a complementary tool, which the children are going to use anyway. In consequence, they have to learn how to use it intelligently.

How many students are in each class?

Class size is one of the four strong pillars on which our educational offer is based. In fact, the maximum capacity of students in a class is 18. Our teachers have the ability to implement the École Bilingue Chardin learning methods thanks to the small class size (between 15 and 18 students for the preschool and elementary levels).

Can children who didn’t attend École Bilingue Chardin preschool still attend the bilingual elementary school?

Yes, this is quite possible. Despite the change in environment, École Bilingue Chardin ensures that children are guided towards adopting the values that we promote. Therefore, new students entering our bilingual elementary school will be able to adapt without any problems.

What is a private school without contract?

École Bilingue Chardin is a private school without a contract. Like all such schools, its opening is conditioned by the rectorat, the Town Hall, and the Prefecture's Agreement. Our bilingual school is under the control of the Ministry of Education (with possible inspections every year). However, it does not benefit from any financial support (unlike private schools under contract).

However, the costs of Chardin bilingual school are numerous:

  • Rent
  • Salaries for our teachers and staff
  • School and administrative supplies
  • Maintenance and operating expenses

The school operates on tuition and registration fees alone.

Why should you choose a Montessori nursery?

The two years old section of the École Bilingue Chardin is the first section that we offer to families. This section is a Montessori nursery and is animated by a Montessori educator who is accompanied in this task by an English-speaking assistant.

The choice of a Montessori nursery allows the child to develop his autonomy, his prehension and to enrich his daily experiences with all the contributions proposed by the class activities.

This program respects the rhythm of the young students and allows them to grow serenely within our establishment.
