An Early Immersion into French Language & Culture

The mission of La Petite Ecole is to immerse children in French language and culture, and develop their verbal, motor, social and critical thinking skills through a developmentally appropriate, arts-integrated curriculum. 

Imaginative, hands-on projects are facilitated by native French-speaking educators, incorporating the artworks of acclaimed, visiting contemporary artists from around the world.

La Petite Ecole is a nurturing environment with an educational philosophy that fosters self-expression, creativity, initiative and collaboration with peers.
