About Us

​La Petite École offers a great variety of cultural, artistic, and sporting activities as personal development is considered to be as important as academic excellence.

We believe in the child's total development on all levels, physical, social, emotional, and intellectual. More importantly, we want children to love learning.

From experience, we have found that children starting their language learning at age 2, 3, 4, or 5 are more successful than children starting at 8 or 9. At this young age, they are very receptive to new sounds, which become familiar very quickly. They are uninhibited and quickly become confident and at ease with the foreign language. For these reasons, this program contains many stories, songs, and games. Therefore, children learn the language just like young French children. They will enjoy and repeat these activities, absorbing language as they "play."​

The objective of the French preschool education system is to enable students to:


  • Express themselves in everyday situations (introducing themselves, greeting people, talking about their hobbies, expressing their feelings and opinions, asking and giving information, finding their way, talking about past events or projects).

  • Understand words and sentences in simple texts, understand simple instructions, and understand and participate in short conversations on topics of everyday life.

Typical Activities at La Petite Ecole:

French Lessons


Children are taught the basics of French through common everyday situations. In each lesson, new vocabulary is introduced through role play.



French Learning Songs

A large number of lessons include songs composed to repeat and practice the vocabulary from the lesson. Children will gladly listen to cheerful melodies more than once and quickly memorize the new words.

Mathematics & Sciences

Children learn numbers, counting, matching, classification, measurement, and geometry through age-appropriate materials and activities.

Sing Along Activities


Each song is followed by an instrumental version, so the children can sing along to the known melody and proudly show what they have learned.

Each lesson ends with a set of various interactive exercises designed to practice the words that have been introduced in the lesson and expand the vocabulary. The sing-along represents a great way to measure their own progress, and it's suitable both for children who can and can't read.



Picture Dictionary 

The lesson will include activities to help them remember the words that were introduced during the class. The children will repeat the words after the teacher and also practice writing by tracing the word.


French Activity Book


The activity book includes all the topics covered by the French course and gives your children a great opportunity to practice their French "reading and writing" skills.

Our program has been successful at helping kids feel at ease, we strongly believe in tailoring classroom education to fit the individual work habit of each child. Our philosophy is to work individually with each child as we help reinforce their strengths which typically leads to building up the child’s self-esteem. Preschoolers need what we define as “teacher time” in an individual setting. What this means is, children will interact individually with their teacher, in small groups, and with the entire classroom. LPE environment encourages each child to develop their cognitive and social skillset, their language abilities, and their interest in learning new things about themselves and their entourage.
