Making French education accessible to all !

« Education is all about building bridges » (R. Ellison)

French Passerelle is a dedicated program designed to welcoming non French-speaking children throughout the curriculum at Lycée Français de Singapour

 

Promoting cultural and intellectual openness and exchange

Welcoming new communities, especially non French-speaking children

Accompanying all children towards integration and success

 

French Passerelle offers an easy, adapted and modular access to French education to all families in Singapore

- Personalized support for the child’s progress throughout his or her time at Lycée Français de Singapour

- Buddy system to help the child with his or her social integration at Lycée Français de Singapour

- Family integration through regular face-to-face meetings and outings

- Clear commitment between the school and the family

 

As neither my wife or I have any French background or connections, the decision to raise our daughter bi-lingually in French and English was purely a choice that we made.

Without having a French speaker at home, you need to create that environment through other means. I would be happy to share with others how I did this and also to reassure them that, yes, it is possible.

 
 
A specific curriculum depending on the child’s age
 
From Kindergarten to Elementary
- Immersion program in classes with children of French and non-French backgrounds
