L’écoline is a school based on the values of peace, joy and cooperation. A school where children are free to express their own unique potential, to acquire and develop their creativity, their confidence and self-awareness, and the pleasure of learning.
A bilingual school which helps children to become aware of the world around them and which encourages them to be actively-involved and responsible citizens.
Our Nature Atelierista offers ‘ateliers’ in the forest or at the beach, in order to increase their exploration of and connection with the natural environment. Children learn about the different seasons, they ask lots of questions about the treasures they find, they come up with theories, are eager to protect nature, build huts, develop their motor skills through climbing trees and their cooperation by playing together. Sometimes they meet the forest warden and other people who look after the forest.
Children work with artists and creative educators to develop and express their own creative sensibility. They have a dance/movement atelier one afternoon per week. Children also work with our visual artist on 6-weeks projects, one morning a week. Several of our educators have an artistic background.
Art and Nature are some of the many languages we “speak” and offer to children. Inspired by Reggio Emilia approach, our daily life at l’écoline is filled with many opportunities to explore the world with plenty other languages such as science, building, narration, theater, engineering, etc.
