You can enrol your child(ren) over one or two session(s). Children can join at any time during the year providing there is space available.
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. French will be spoken around the children during the sessions.
La Petite École seeks to engage children to participate in learning French and in developing their sense of community and cultural identity through a fun-centered learning environment and interaction that promotes diversity and socialisation.
Children are also taught French etiquette, manners, hygiene standards, and health and safety.
