Why not see how we engage & inspire the kids with a COMPLIMENTARY FRENCH SESSION AT YOUR CENTRE?

 

"Incredibly engaging and enjoyable . . . the classes have an element of wonder and a touch of magic that is exciting; the children love it!"

Luke, Early Childhood Educator and member of kids' band, The ZooBoyz

 

HOW ARE THE SESSIONS RUN?

Within the time period that you choose for your French session we would break the class into small groups of approximately 8 children, with a minimum of 10 minutes French each group.

This way the children can each have turns of our engaging French games & really absorb their Cocorico French experience! We just need a quiet-ish (I know that can be a challenge) space on a mat, big enough for a group of children to sit in a circle & maybe do a bit of jumping about.

Each session is a mix of actions, rhythms & hands-on games. Sometimes there'll be an interactive story or fun song, always accompanied with cute expressions & gestures to reinforce the meaning. Sprinkled with humour, the children's French time gets them laughing & coming back for more! Each week builds on the last, & before you know it you'll be hearing spontaneous expressions of French-ness throughout your days.

EMBRACING EYLF GUIDELINES

Languages are a brilliant tool for encouraging strength & confidence in all of the following EYLF areas:

 
A STRONG SENSE OF THEIR IDENTITY

 

As we intentionally encourage a love of their home city, country & language, while broadening their knowledge & appreciation of the exciting variety in the world

*

CONNECTIONS WITH THEIR WORLD

 

Opening doors that make connections feel comfortable & desirable, rather than intimidating

*

 

A STRONG SENSE OF WELL-BEING

 

Feeling confident in their expanded abilities to communicate, which enhances their sense of self.

*

CONFIDENCE & INVOLVEMENT IN THEIR LEARNING

 

Piquing their curiosity, encouraging them to make connections between what they know & what they're learning & answering their questions with enthusiasm, all work together to create a healthy self-confidence in their ability & desire to inquire & learn

*

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS

 

creating an openness to communicate freely in our multi-cultural environment

 

"Here at the Manly Vale childcare centres we really love having our wonderful (Cocorico) French sessions in our centres. The lessons add so much value to our centre and depth to the childrens' learning. Our families are really happy with the lessons and love the little activity sheets that are often sent home"

Lauren, Director at Manly Vale ELS

 

SKILLS FOR KIDS TO TAKE WITH THEM THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES

There are so many long-lasting benefits to be gained from exposing young children to languages, including enhancing their cognitive development & social awareness.

WHAT IF SOME CHILDREN ALREADY SPEAK 2 LANGUAGES?

That's fantastic! Did you know that when children are speaking two languages at home, & then they absorb English at daycare, they will pick up French as a fourth language FASTER than those children who only speak English!

It's completely true! I've seen it again & again, in every area, with any language.

AND THEY LOVE IT!

It is such an incredible bonus for them. Download the Free Guide above for more details about how languages are such a gift.

 

DO YOU HAVE BILINGUAL STAFF WORKING AT YOUR CENTRE?

Brilliant! What a rich environment you can create exposing the children to a variety of languages. Your staff can expand upon the fun activites & structure introduced during the children's Cocorico French sessions & design a truly innovative & enriching experience for the kids!  Click Here to find out about our Workshop designed exclusively for bilingual early childhood educators.

 

ARE YOU ENJOYING THE GOVERNMENT'S LANGUAGE APP?

Make that exposure really worthwhile for the kids by giving them that all-important real-life contact with a bilingual Cocorico Language Leader who can expand upon the brilliant opportunity provided by technology & make the experience REAL.

WHAT THE PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT COCORICO

 

"The first words out of Noah's mouth this morning were, "Is it French today?" He just loves coming to French."

 

 

"I just want to let you know how much Erin is enjoying French. She was upset that she was missing kindy on Anzac Day because she wanted to go to French – let me tell you she normally is more than happy to miss kindy! I have been surprised that she remembers the words she is learning, she really loves your class."

 

 

"Olive absolutely loves French and every Tuesday dinner she tells me about all the songs and the words she is learning. It is wonderful."
