French Immersion at ÉRE

We are now accepting registrations for our 2021/22 Kindergarten and Grade 1 French Immersion programs!

Your child could be bilingual!

  • Our program was established in 1986 - 35 years of French Immersion in Rocky Mountain House!
  • The program is designed for students with English speaking parents
  • ÉRE has fully bilingual teachers and a Language Learning Assistant to provide expert instruction
  • There are no additional costs for immersion learning
  • Learning a second language is natural for early learners
  • French Immersion follows the same program of studies as English learning students
  • French Immersion students also learn a mastery of English
  • Research indicates students in French Immersion are more flexible thinkers, have superior listening skills, enhanced creativity and problem solving abilities, and increased career opportunities
  • There is an active Canadian Parents for French (CPF) chapter in Rocky supporting parents and providing cultural experiences

From one of our French Immersion teachers:

French Immersion means:

  • parents do NOT need to know French for their child to flourish in the program-students will have an enhanced ability to communicate in their first language
  • students will more easily be able to acquire other languages
  • no addition costs-a sense community for students and parents
  • an increase in students’ abilities to understand complex and abstract concepts
  • a multitude of opportunities for students now and later in life, for example: academic, cultural and career options
  • the teacher will support you with any questions or concerns no matter what!
