Within the French education system, the transition from maternelle (pre-school) to primaire (primary school) is an exciting and huge step for children. The Cours Préparatoire (or CP) is the first year of primaire, or primary school, when students begin their formal education and learn to write and develop their reading skills in French.
On Tuesday, April 12, 2016, AAWE is organizing “Moving Up to CP”, an event held once every two years at the American Library of Paris. Panel speakers and experienced parents will offer developmental insights into this age group, and practical advice for helping your child thrive in this next stage of their education in France.
About the speakers:
Christine Gascou, mother of two, has taught CP for over 20 years at the Lycée International St. Germain-en-Laye, after teaching at the Lycée Français in New York, in Washington DC for 10 years, and at a private French school in San Diego.
Alicia Barnes Saba, mother of three, is a speech-language pathologist who works with children in the Paris area, and holds a particular interest in the education of children with special needs.
