Welcome to Atlas Immersion Academy. Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate early childhood environment for the children and families we serve, all while introducing and reinforcing the acquisition of a foreign language through daily interaction between caregivers and children.
Every time we arrive at Atlas my kids are excited to play – and I’m excited that they spend the day immersed in French and learning through fun activities like theater, design, and nature play. We chose Atlas because of it’s welcoming and warm feeling, and four years later my oldest son entered kindergarten with a solid understanding of French and a love of learning. I don’t know what we would do without the supportive and creative after-school programs at Atlas and appreciate how they foster the great sense of community present there through Parent’s Night Out, Ice Cream Socials, concerts, and more.
Both of our children have attended Atlas from the time they were 18 months old, and we have been so happy to watch them grow and learn their French language skills, along with developing social skills. We currently have one child attending Atlas, and one child in the Atlas aftercare program, and have been extremely satisfied with the level and quality of care that they have received there. We initially enrolled our older child in Atlas to develop her French language skills, as French is a second language in our household. Now that she is in a grade-school French-immersion program, she is excelling in both her French and English speaking, writing, and comprehension skills. We firmly believe that having the French immersion at an early age was vital in her development, and are so grateful to Atlas for this opportunity.
We started out at Atlas 5 years ago when our oldest son was 3. All 3 of our sons have enjoyed the loving staff and creative curriculum provided there. As a native French speaker, it was essential to me that my children speak French. Atlas allowed me to work and to make sure my children were able to communicate with our family at home in perfect French!
We love Atlas. Our child loves her classmates. We love that she gets to go outside, she’s learning French, and makes strides at improving behavior. It is well run, and is committed to continually improving the school and the curriculum to keep the kids interested and entertained. They do a great job of keeping the parents informed and encourages involvement.
