Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

LA MATERNELLE FRENCH ACADEMY is a school where the children are able to discover a variety of different cultures, consequently widening their experience and allowing them to better understand and then respect other cultures.Children who grow up in a bilingual environment develop greater social and cognitive skills. They often master their native language better than children who grew up in a monolingual environment.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

La Maternelle French Academy’s originality is the immersion of toddlers into a French environment.

La Maternelle French Academy is neither a school nor a traditional daycare centre, but a French learning center inspired by French nurseries and preschools. By combining both the French and the American systems, it distances itself from every daycare center or learning center that you have previously encountered in Houston.

The teachers are all natives from French-speaking countries.

The instruction is exclusively in French.
We accept kids from 18 months to 5 years old.

The academic team bases its teaching upon a thorough knowledge of French cultures, and aims to the mastering of French language.
