Nursery & Elementary

At Ermitage, we understand that these are some of the most formative years of your child’s life. Our Lower School teachers are dedicated to stimulating the mind, building confidence, engaging intellectual curiosity and fostering mutual comprehension, empathy, cooperation, integrity and open-mindedness. We strive to guide and inspire each child to develop into healthy, well-adjusted and successful students.

This exciting learning environment attracts students and staff from around the world ౼ each with their own unique story, cultural background and level of fluency in French and English. Since becoming bilingual depends on various factors, each of our students follows a program tailored to their level of comprehension ౼ with the end goal of full bilingualism in English and French before 6th grade. At Ermitage, parents and teachers work together as a team to give your children the best possible start in life.

Ermitage welcomes children from all over the world into a highly-motivated, well-rounded academic environment. While students can join Ermitage at any time, many have been with us since Pre-K (Maternelle) and continue through 12th grade (Terminale). In our Lower School ౼from Pre-K through 5th grade (Maternelle to CM2) ౼ we take a more international approach to the French curriculum by incorporating English instruction
