EIB Monceau Nursery School

The nursery school at EIB Monceau is housed across two sites on either side of Parc Monceau in the 8th Arrondissement. These are Le " Petit Monceau " (105, boulevard Malesherbes) and The Main Building (6, avenue Van Dyck).

Nursery school, or maternelle, to use the French name, is divided into three classes:

  1. Nursery Class (Petite Section),
  2. Reception Class (Moyenne Section)
  3. Year 1 (Grande Section).

Daily life at Nursery School

To start school, a child must be 3 years old in the calendar year in which the school year begins. To ensure dedicated attention, pupils are supervised by teachers assisted by nursery assistants. Our bilingual school respects the official French curriculum while integrating daily English language instruction from the nursery onwards.

Nursery Class

In the nursery class or petite section, children are taught in small classes of just 5 students. During this first school year, the children attend classes in the morning or afternoon (depending on birth month), including Wednesdays, for a progressive adaptation to the school system.

English learning starts with 30 minutes per day, taught through playful and interactive methods (games, songs, etc.).

Reception Class and Year 1

From reception class (moyenne section) onwards, children attend school full time, four days a week (excluding Wednesdays). Children are taught according to the French National Curriculum with the addition of 45 minutes of English learning per day in reception class, and an hour a day in Year 1. Students are divided into level groups for English learning, according to ability.

In addition to the daily teaching of English, pupils also enjoy music lessons given by a qualified English-speaking teacher. From Year 1 onwards we offer optional English workshops on Wednesday mornings. Both of these activities are designed to improve children's oral skills by teaching through play, while encouraging the discovery of other cultures through music, art, stories and role-playing. Part of the week is spent learning about digital technologies through interactive ‘edutainment’ games.
