Winter 2020/2021. Happy New Year to all.

This winter at My Maternelle we are leaning about the importance of safety on the road, the cycle of life, parts of plants, and exploring the world with our globe and maps. We are doing fundamental math like additions and subtractions, we are nailing down our letters and playing with the 3 letters words. We spend time every day outdoors, walking, playing, exploring, building and celebrating birthdays (when applicable).

Each day we work on behavioral, social and cognitive skills. How to be a better person. How should we treat our friends. How to be sitting and paying attention, focusing on a task, and working with others. We discuss issues like caring not only for our own pets, but also our neighbors’ animals. We learn to be mindful of the wildlife that we come in contact with both near and afar.

My Maternelle’s curriculum helps each child to build a solid foundation in language arts, math, and science. In addition to these, the school focuses on French and Spanish languages through songs, activities and fundamental manners.

We are doing everything safely and are happy and thankful to still be open during this these difficult times.

Introducing “Les Aventures de Lily.”

My Maternelle is very excited to introduce you to Lily to help children learn a new language during this school year. Lily is an adorable French cloth doll and a sweet inspiration for children. She assists the learning process and is a perfect companion for your child.

Lily was created by Vicky Audet, a wonderful young writer and illustrator from Granby, Québec Canada. Vicky has authorized me to read and record her two books from the series “Les Aventures de Lily.” I will be developing appropriate instructional videos lessons using Lily.

Lily has two books that you can purchased so that you and your child can follow along with the videos. Lily (handmade in Montreal, Québec) will be also available.

This school year, My Maternelle will be producing a series of French pre-k and kindergarten instructional videos for children to view and learn at home. This September the lessons should be available online at for a small fee.

Lily speaks only French, so get your child ready to learn and have fun with us. We will learn the alphabet, numbers, matching pictures, mathematical exercises, songs, and a lot more.

More details for our exciting new joint venture will be available shortly. If you want to place an order or if you have any questions, please email Madame Katy at

Merci et bonne journée,

Madame Katy
