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.
