Welcome to Beaux Esprits Play School, where play is learning and language is fun!
For over 40 years, Beaux Esprits has offered children a gentle introduction to French. Our students blossom as enthusiastic learners in a play-based program featuring strong educational components. Our parents enjoy sharing their children's excitement as they develop pride and confidence in their new knowledge of the world around them and of the French language.
We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our school. If you have any questions, would like to visit the classroom, or would like more information please call us at 780.484.4926 or send us an e-mail at email@example.com. We look forward to meeting you!
Our Open House will take place on Wednesday, February 16 from 6-7:30 pm in our classroom at Our Lady of the Prairies school (pending current public health measures). In the event that we cannot host an in-person Open House, please contact the school for more information. Please note, all adults attending the Open House must wear masks, and show proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative rapid test from the previous 72 hours (as per Edmonton Catholic School District rules).
Feel free to contact the school or the registrar to arrange drop off of the registration package (details can be found on our Registration page).
Mme Jeanne McWatt brings her energy and enthusiasm for teaching young children and introducing them to new ideas through art and play in our program every day! You can’t help but be excited about learning if you spend 5 minutes with Mme McWatt! From the time Mme McWatt was a young child, she knew she wanted to work with kids "when she grew up." She loves seeing them grown and make new discoveries each day. Mme McWatt earned her early childhood diploma back in 2004 and so brings a wealth of experience with her to the Beaux Esprits program. As a Franco-Albertan she also has a passion for French Immersion education. Contact us to meet Mme McWatt!
"I really love seeing the changes of the children throughout the year. I love being able to see them excel as they learn new things every day. I also love getting to know each child with each of their individual personalities. I’m so excited to be a part of Beaux Esprits Playschool introducing a second language to so many more kids for years to come! We are also so lucky to have such an amazing board to work with, and the community of Our Lady of the Prairies has been a huge support to the program."
