La Petite Ecole

La Petite Ecole is a French immersion preschool programme in Christchurch, at the Alliance Française, for children aged 3 to 5. We took our inspiration from La Petite Ecole based in Auckland.

TERM 1 2019 will start on Thursday 31st JANUARY. We will run the programme over 2 sessions:

Morning session:8.30am - 12.30pm
Afternoon session: 12.30pm-4.30pm

You can enrol your child(ren) over one or two session(s).

All instruction is in French and is taught by native-speaking teachers in a half day session for a ratio of no more than 9 students per teacher or teaching assistant. Only French will be spoken around the children during the sessions.

La Petite École seeks to engage children to participate in learning French and develop their sense of community and cultural identity through a fun-centered learning environment and interaction that promotes diversity and socialisation. Activities include:

  • French language, stories, songs
  • Writing, maths
  • Painting, drawing, crafts, physical activities
Children are also taught French etiquette, manners, hygiene standards, and health and safety.
