Our Aim

French Ateliers offer a personalised instruction based on an immersive, communicative and action-oriented pedagogy.

The objective of the French ateliers is to develop the level of French of each child, regardless of his or her exposure to French in the family environment and his or her initial level..

Our very small classes offer children a safe and caring space where everyone receives the attention essential to their development from our teaching team.

By working with the family, the entire educational team helps each child, depending on their age and exposure to French, to enrich their vocabulary, strengthen their language structure and discover the written language.

Our teaching approach

We offer a rigorous, innovative and caring teaching that promotes child’s personal development.

VERY SMALL CLASSES
Limited to 6 children per teacher, our French Ateliers offer a serene and caring environment. Our teachers have the necessary and essential time to devote to each child. At the same time, the children work and play together.
PERSONALIZED TEACHING
Each child is unique, with his or her own personality, strengths, and learning rhythm. Our lessons are therefore adapted and personalized.
IMMERSIVE APPROACH
Your child is immersed in a French environment. The stories are told in French, the songs are French, the instructions are given in French. During all activities, children are constantly invited to express themselves in French. 
DISCOVER FRENCH CULTURE
Lessons allow children to discover French culture by following the important dates that punctuate the year in France: the Galette des rois, carnival, spring gardening, summer holidays, back-to-school, Halloween and Christmas.
CHILDREN'S LITERATURE AND SONGS
Reading a story and teaching a song to children means developing their vocabulary, reinforcing the construction of their sentences and, for the older ones, introducing them to phonology.
CREATIVE AND PLAYFUL ACTIVITIES
Each activity is designed by our teachers to create a situation of language exchange with each child.
COMMUNICATION WITH FAMILY
Transparency and communication with families are very important. We use modern communication tools to keep in touch with families at all times.
