Canada Parent and Child
The Canada Parent and Child Exploration Experience program for parents and children combines intensive English language instruction for the child participants as well as a detailed introduction to Canadian education, lifestyle and culture for parents. This is a homestay-based program, providing complete English immersion through interaction with Canadian families and opportunities to learn about Canadian culture.
The Canada Parent and Child Exploration Experience program is an excellent opportunity for parents who are interested in education in Canada and Canadian culture, and would like to spend a memorable, fun and special time with their child, while also advancing their child’s English language abilities.
The interactive and engaging program includes classroom English language instruction for child participants, followed each day by an excursion together with their parents that enriches the learning experience. While children are in the classroom, parents will take part in presentations on Canadian education, tours of the highlights of the region, shopping, and cultural exchange.
The program is offered in two locations: Niagara/Toronto in Ontario, and Calgary/Rocky Mountains in Alberta. Please contact us for more information, including future program dates.
“I really enjoy the experiences gained in working within the CIS program. The students we teach expand our understandings of our own pedagogy, in working with a cultural background so distinct from our own."
“The program offers students an unforgettable opportunity to see a different part of the world, while developing their English language skills, as they experience Canadian culture through classroom activities, excursions, and interactions with their homestay families.”
"It is very rewarding for me, as an educator, to witness the growth in the students’ language skills over a short intensive period of time. The base of vocabulary they arrive to Canada with serves as a good testament to their English training in their own school system."
"I think the activities that are embedded within the program provide the students a solid means of showing much of the Canadian lifestyle, in terms of day-to-day recreation, but also other features that require the use of larger spaces, that are not as prevalent in their home country. These, in combination with the homestay experiences and dietary differences from home, provide the students with a truly well rounded experience."
