The benefits of our bilingual program

Knowing more than one language creates cognitive flexibility in your child, improving their problem solving, focus, working memory and abstract thinking – all critical skills for future academic success .

Our school provides a supportive bilingual learning environment, where children as young as 30 months build confidence while being exposed to new cultures and different points of view. When your child graduates from Cousteau, they are able to communicate, think, create and debate at a very high level in both French and English—both of Canada’s official languages.

They will also join a group of more than 220 million French speakers worldwide, spread across five different continents!
