    Is it done in complete french? Id be interested in taking my guys if its done in both languages and if there is one near my end - that would be super duper! Ill be keeping an eye on this as well.

    I wanted to know as well about the Highbury/Dundas one (at L'Academie de la Tamise school)- we went last year and it was great! It was going to form a lot of my winter activity plans this winter so I hope it's still on...

    The leader was bilingual last year and most of the parents spoke to each other in English- and communicated with the leader that way too. However 90% of the instructions to the kids, all the stories etc were in French.

    Hope it's still going!!

    Does anyone speak french and could call the school and ask?
    From memory, the admin. staff speak very little English, so me calling and trying to find out of the group is still on would not really work...

    You are wonderful - Thank you so much for doing that - I took french all through highschool but I would be almost starting from scratch now!
    I would like to go OFTEN. We are planning on sending DD to FI next Sept. so the more she is surrounded by it the better...also wouldn't hurt my little guy either.
    I can do mornings with just DS any day but Thurs.
    And any afternoon...DS still naps but it will be ok for him to miss his nap once in awhile so DD can go ( she is in half days every day J/K)
    What day works well for you, and others?
