Welcome to La Coccinelle

We are a daycare with preschool activities located in Surrey, British Columbia. We are an independent organization located inside the french school Gabrielle-Roy.

At our daycare, children will learn French through developmentally appropriate activities both open-ended and structured, including science, arts and music.


La Coccinelle is open from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday to Friday from September to June.

Age Group

We cater to children from 30 months to 5 years old and are licensed for up to 24 children per day.


Parents must meet french public schooling eligibility requirements as outlined by the Conseil Scolaire Francophone. See eligibility.

La Coccinelle Program

Children at La Coccinelle, will learn French through open-ended and structured games, activity centers (science, arts, music) adapted to their level.

The program is structured around a new theme that is introduced every two weeks.

The themes explored are varied and can include for example “Summer”, “Farm animals”, “Insects”, “Under the sea”, “Multiculturalism” etc. The themes chosen can also reflect annual events such as Mother’s Day, Fall and Chinese New Year.


French learning is reinforced with the use of the Paul et Suzanne program, a program designed specifically for children of preschool age and developed to enhance French language acquisition.
