Our educational project

An educational method tailored to every age group:

  • In pre-school, the schools belonging to the Wi School network use the Montessori pedagogy.
  • In primary school, active teaching methods are used to support students and help them meet the requirements needed to enter secondary school.

Why? Whatever your child’s age, our excellent teaching methods are based on a precise three-pronged educational approach.

1. Acquiring and mastering the fundamentals

  • Understanding and expressing themselves by mastering both the spoken and written French language (children are involved in reading and writing from the last year of pre-school, developing a rich vocabulary, attending grammar and conjugation lessons, etc.)
  • Understanding and expressing themselves using mathematical, scientific and computer languages (mastering numbers up to 1,000 from pre-school, mastering the four mathematical operations, solving problems along with scientific projects and empirical discoveries, etc.)
  • Discovering the humanities (art, music, history, geography, etc.)

2. Practising English from a very early age

  • 100% bilingual French/English environment, with two teachers (one French-speaking and one English-speaking teacher, both natives)
  • Bilingual immersion: each teacher speaks to the students in their native language only
  • The goal is to achieve real spoken bilingualism by the end of pre-school, the period of time most conducive to language development
  • The goal is to master the written language during the primary school cycle (especially to enable students to enter international secondary schools)

Pairs of English-speaking and French-speaking students working on projects together, thus encouraging bilingualism without the presence of an adult.

3. Building confidence and independence, to help them become responsible citizens

  • Small, multi-level classes enable teachers to provide lessons tailored to the actual level of each student, and encourage students to work independently
  • A teaching method centred on the child and his needs
  • The development of socio-emotional skills (through the Children’s Council, lessons about empathy, courtesy exercises, non-violent problem management, etc.)
  • Projects to help them become active contributors to tomorrow’s world (ecology, citizenship, discovering world cultures, etc.)

A closer look at teaching methods

Why do our schools use the Montessori pedagogy in pre-school?
This teaching method is particularly well suited to children aged from 2 to 6, as it is based on personalised learning, analysis of the child’s sensitive stages and the use of specific, adapted equipment. Children are involved in their own development and gain self-confidence.
Students gradually move from handling Montessori material to grasping abstract concepts, especially in reading and mathematics.

  • Very good results in reading, thanks to motor-sensory learning of the connections between graphemes and phonemes and a writing activity starting as early as the last year of pre-school.
    Outstanding results in mathematics, with step-by-step support from concrete material to more abstract concepts, enabling a real understanding of the fundamentals.

Why do our schools use a combination of active teaching methods in primary school?

From the first year of primary school, learning requires more written work, more monitoring and assessment.
Furthermore, in addition to the Montessori pedagogy, we need to take into consideration the French National Education curriculum and its pace, as well as introducing some elements, such as digital technology.

In our schools, a combination of active teaching methods enables the use of the most appropriate resources and tools for each subject area and skill. This combination of active teaching methods ensures that students are actively involved and provides a wealth of learning materials.

  • In French and English, students work on lessons (grammar, conjugation, etc.) in small groups, according to their level, using both material and more ‘traditional’ exercises to practise,
  • In the afternoons, small independent groups work on projects (scientific experiments, history and geography presentations, etc.) enabling them to work on subjects other than maths and languages.

What makes our educational teams so special?


Our teams are committed to your children’s education on a daily basis.

Their expertise in the curriculum and teaching materials (Montessori or other) combined with empathy enable them to care for their students while respecting the development, personality and specific needs of each child.

In multi-level groups, teachers support each child’s progress and create an environment where cooperation is encouraged, thus helping children to learn to live together.

A strong relationship with families

We help to create continuity between school and home through a strong, organised and transparent relationship.

Group times

  • Parents/teachers meeting at the beginning of each school year
  • At least one pedagogical meeting during the year
  • Christmas, Saint Patrick’s day, Halloween, children’s carnival, etc.
  • “Snacks together”
  • Parents’ parties
  • End-of-year picnic
  • Open classes

=> During open classes, students welcome their parents into their classrooms to show them their work and the activities they enjoy at school, with the kind support of their teachers. This sharing time is much appreciated by all!

Individual appointments

  • At least two individual appointments per year, for 45-minutes
  • At the parents’ request, depending on the children’s needs

Weekly communication

  • WhatsApp groups per class, to send photos once a week, as well as the most important information
  • Online photo and content sharing platform (Klassly, Yammer, etc.)
  • E-mails to keep families informed
