Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Little French School is a private non-profit school that provides a unique experience for children by combining high quality care with immersion in a second language.
The Little French School's immersion program seeks to sharpen a child's overall intellectual abilities by using a second language as a medium of instruction and to help children develop to their full potential and cultural awareness. Each child's individuality and creativity is honored and encouraged, which in turn helps each child develop positive self-esteem.
The Little French School is dedicated to support the interconnectedness of the family and the community. Together, we can reach farther for ecological, global, and multicultural awareness."
