What you'll learn in this kids camp class:

Our year-round à petits pas program encourages your petit to discover the language through a structured curriculum based on a child’s daily life, enriched with games, songs, dance, and arts-and-crafts. Classes are offered for toddlers who are new to French as well as those growing up in a French-speaking family. Our qualified and experienced teachers will make each class engaging and fun for your child. Classes are taught entirely in French and in small groups to ensure that each child receives personal attention.

Specifically designed for children ages 1–4 by experts in early childhood education, our curriculum emphasizes the importance of experiential and multi-sensory learning techniques to help children develop cognitively, socially, and emotionally. In this program, the teacher uses music, movement, visual arts, and theater-based games to teach toddlers French. Toddlers will be able to engage with the five senses, memorize vocabulary, understand and pronounce short sentences. Additionally, this program is very helpful if you are looking for a French or bilingual preschool.

In à petits pas classes, toddlers will socialize through the following interactive games and routines:

  • Speaking: Conversation skills are emphasized through routine questions and weekly vocabulary.
  • Singing: Toddlers will absorb the musicality of the language through songs and comptines.
  • Moving: Toddlers will follow choreographed movements to associate words with movements. They will also relax and focus on words and ideas through yoga exercises.
  • Reading: The teacher will read stories and poetry connected to the vocabulary.
  • Creating: Toddlers will create visual artwork to review colors and shapes.
  • Gathering: Toddlers will enjoy a snack while practicing lively routines in French that demonstrate their French savoir-faire.
