COMBINING A STIMULATING INTELLECTUAL PROGRAMME AND NURTURING ENVIRONMENT TO FOSTER EACH CHILD’S FULLEST POTENTIAL
Our mission is to enable each child to achieve academic excellence through individual development and through play.
Our children are supported in their learning and encouraged to develop their talents. Our teachers value all types of achievements and inspire our students to give their best.
We nurture our children’s individualism, while helping them develop their academic, social and physical capacities.
LEARN TO LOVE LEARNING
The first years of school are crucial to the success of future studies, building self-confidence and the desire to learn.
All children can achieve academic success if their curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, leadership skills and self-confidence are stimulated.
Our mission is to create a positive, joyful and reassuring environment so that our students become true "learners" for their whole lives.
A FRANCO-ENGLISH CURRICULUM
Concordia’s educational objectives adhere to those of both the French National Education Program and the English National Curriculum. We offer our children a truly bilingual education and the choice of continuing in the English or French system for their secondary education.
Not only do we take the best methods from both educational systems, but we also employ methods from great educators and utilise innovative techniques.
For example, children learn maths using a playful method attributed to the Singapore educational system, which is based on solving concrete problems from everyday life. This approach has enabled Singaporeans to lead the world rankings (PISA and TIMSS).
Science is introduced through practical examples, teaching in a tactile manner to facilitate the understanding of abstract concepts.
We teach leadership and talent development. Eloquence, oral expression and the practice of sport are also at the heart of our learning, as in English-speaking countries. An emphasis on empathy is also an important part of the program.
Concordia encourages autonomy and active engagement, in the methods of Maria Montessori, Freinet, Decroly and Reggio Emilia. In this approach, the child is an active learner who learns to organise him- or herself to solve problems. Teachers are facilitators, transmitting knowledge while also encouraging children to think for themselves.
INDIVIDUALISED LEARNING (ADAPTIVE LEARNING)
Children will succeed because of their own qualities. That is why they need special attention and individualised learning.
Thanks to small classes, our academic programme can adapt to the temperament and rhythm of each child.
Our teachers are trained in different learning methods and styles. Taking into account the profile of each child, our teachers organise learning along individualised learning paths, where the children actively participate in their own learning goals.
