Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Program Philosophy

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit the Les Enfants web site. Even though Les Enfants was established in Los Angeles in 1989, it has roots overseas dating back to 1952. Our reputation for quality has allowed us to continue providing early education and care in a professional manner.
Our goal as child care professionals is to provide a warm safe environment where children can learn to feel good about themselves; where they can have play experiences within a group which fosters optimal development to their individual ages and abilities. Emphasis is placed on the individual cognitive, social, emotional and physical development for each child.
In 1998, Les Enfants, a non-profit organization, began the intense process of building a state-of the-art facility that the school moved to in June 1999. This warm, charming and home-like center serves infants through Pre-Kindergarten. The standards of excellence in program development, child-care staff selection and incentive programs and parent rapport are among its outstanding features.
We would like for you to get to know us. We invite you to compare our school with other pre-schools as you seek the finest program for your child. Personal tours of the school are designed to introduce you to our program, philosophy and facility. Please feel free to observe, ask questions and come in for another visit as you make this important decision for your child. We look forward to the privilege of sharing in your family's early childhood experience.
