Let's see if I have understood your question.

You are talking about this sentence in the French from English course, that says:
"Nous aidons notre fille. " : We are helping our daughter.

the verb : to help : Aider
it is a regular '~er' verb to conjugate.

Perhaps I break it down more:
nous : we
aidons : are helping - this is a verb, and when used with nous the verb is conjugated as aidons
notre : our
fille : daughter
