Offers

The After School offers a full range of weekly sessions during the school year and holiday camps during the school holidays. This 100% English-speaking offer is available in our two centres, in Chatou and Maisons-Laffitte, which are purpose-built to encourage your Monster or Teen to develop a positive and independent use of English.

Baby Monsters & Mini Monsters: 3-6 years old

From age 3 we provide Monsters with a safe and reassuring environment in which they can learn, make mistakes and grow. Our goal is to support each Monster’s development by supporting and encouraging their knowledge and understanding of the world, while creating a structured educational experience. We offer a full range of activities and games to support and grow the knowledge and recognition of pictures, numbers, and words. Our strong arts and crafts focus is key to each workshop and provides Monsters with a new and exciting way of expressing themselves.

Routine

Upon arrival, Monsters are welcomed by the teachers into an English-speaking environment and are invited to take off their shoes. The younger Monsters start with their own choice of activity: making a puzzle, exploring a book, playing a game, etc. Then, the Monsters gather and the group goes through the roll call which is followed by the wall calendar and, occasionally, Music Time.

Workshop

The sessions are topic-based with each topic lasting 3 to 4 weeks. Each workshop consists of 3 to 4 activities: arts & crafts, language games and activities, songs and music as well as literacy and numeracy. This allows Monsters to get involved and teachers to implement the pedagogical objectives in an attractive and stimulating way. The activities are designed to be interactive and encourage learners to feel comfortable in expressing themselves.

Send-off

Each session ends with a goodbye song, then the Monsters come out of the classroom, put on their shoes and coats, and remember to collect their work before going home!

Our sessions run in our Chatou (CHA) centre and Maisons-Laffitte (ML) centre throughout the school year.
The displayed sessions are for the 2023-24 school year. Last updated  11/03/2023 at 15.40 PM.

Young Monsters & Little Monsters: 7-10 years old

From the age of 7, we broaden our expectations and approach: Monsters explore all four aspects of communication (listening, speaking, writing, reading) in class. We structure our units over longer periods of time in order to explore each topic in-depth, fostering a more complex, spontaneous expression as well as further developing comprehension strategies and skills.

activité de communication

Communication activity

The Monsters start with a warmer activity when they arrive. Our aim here is to encourage them to express themselves, by interacting in a familiar situation or exercise.

Exploration & discovery of language points and topic

For 5 to 7 weeks, the Monsters take part in different activities which cover all aspects of communication. They work in pairs or groups, before applying their language skills in an individual setting. Each theme is usually marked by one or two collective production(s): mini video presentations, role plays, class performance
