No. At the early grade levels, as most of the courses are taught in French, students adapt very quickly. Parents do not need to speak French. For older students, we have a Linguistic Academic Support program that harnesses those in need of such support and efficiently prepares students for full-course integration.
Kindergarten at La Citadelle is not “Day Care.” Rather, it is a curricular-based environment that offers academic and social enrichment on a daily basis.
Time spent on homework is relative to the student’s grade division. At the early divisions, students are expected to have approximately 30-45 minutes of homework per night. As the students grow older, the load increases, relative to the courses; however, so does the student’s ability to time-manage and this is partially due to our Method of Study courses, which begin in Grade 6.
La Citadelle has a policy of 20 students maximum per grade level. Such a class ratio is imperative to the type of holistic education we seek to deliver.

The following section is concurrent with the Schools’ Pick-Up and Drop-Off procedure available to all Parents and Guardians on the Parents’ Portal on the School’s Website.
In that context and upon arrival at the school, the child must be left with the assigned educator. The educator will sign the register to confirm the child’s attendance.
Upon departure, the parent/guardian must inform and ensure that the educator documents the child’s departure. Parents are responsible to advise La Citadelle preschool in writing of the names of people authorized to pick up their child. La Citadelle preschool has the right to ask for specific identification before releasing the child.
Parents must ensure that all their children’s clothing and supplies are labeled in order to prevent the loss of such items.
Please advise the school’s Main Office of your child’s absence before 9:00 a.m. specifying the reason: personal, holidays or sickness (description of the illness). This will permit us to supervise the spread of illnesses.
La Citadelle preschool program has developed a Sleep Policy and Monitoring Guideline to ensure that all children in its care have a scheduled nap/quiet time normally scheduled after lunch for a maximum of two hours per day. Two sets of sheets will be provided to each child upon admission and parents will be responsible for sending a blanket and pillow (if desired). All items will be taken home at the end of the week to be washed and returned on Monday. All items must be labeled with the student’s name. Parents are required to provide their child with closed slippers that will be worn during naps.
Children attending the Prep-K and Pre-K program at La Citadelle daycare must be toilet-trained.
All children must have at least two sets of extra clothes left at the school including socks, underwear and pants, shirt, and coat (preferably in the school uniform colours).
