- Preschools and Day Cares
Le Ouistiti is a French immersion preschool in the heart of a little rural island called Vashon. Our preschool program is centered around the French “Maternelle” curriculum and philosophy taught in a bilingual setting. This offers the young children a chance to ease into the language as we gradually move from speaking French 50% of the time in the beginning of the school year to 80% of the time by the end of the school year.
Bilingual teaching not only provides our students with the tools they need to become successful in the global society, it creates a tremendously stimulating educational environment and is synonymous with academic excellence beyond mere language proficiency.
Students that are educated in a bilingual environment often show increased listening skills, a better memory and become more sophisticated thinkers. It further increases students’ knowledge and value of other cultures.
We are located in the Land Trust Building at 10014 SW Bank Rd, between the Fire Station and the Vashon Senior Center.
