KIDS

If your child is between 6 and 15 years old, this is the best time for them to learn or improve their French!

As bilingualism continues to grow in Canada, the Société francophone de Maillardville has created a Kids After School Program to respond to the rising demand.

Our program offers different options to accommodate various needs and serve francophone students from BC.

(Please note that our program does not offer parent-participation option.)
