From the Director:
From Paris to Abidjan, Montreal to St. Martin - French is spoken by various cultures in many countries. Our hands on learning environment allows us to celebrate these many cultures through arts and crafts, books, and music. Research shows that bilingualism in children is beneficial in clearer communication and problem solving skills. However, Le Petit Village's curriculum offers more than just the French language. We provide our students with the resources to build a strong foundation in reading, writing, math, science, and geography.
We work individually with parents and students as needed.
We believe that children represent the hope and potential of our future. It is our duty to teach them right from wrong so that they may grow up with love for all, a sense of humility, and a desire to strive and achieve in any setting.
At Le Petit Village we do believe it take an entire village to raise a single child. With that in mind we strive to do our part to contribute positive ideas of community, communication, and cooperation in everything we do.

Teacher/Director prominently posts the schedule and foods that will be served each day. She talks daily with parents at drop off and pick up times, writes down specific notes for parents and leaves them in the child cubby hole, and communicates by email and/or phone as needed.
We have two parent-teacher meetings for the year. We also have open houses for parents to come and get to know more about the programs and activities we teach our students and to get to know the teachers as well.
We give suggestions about extra curricular activities that we think fit best or would help with the students development.
Le Petit Village celebrates its students' achievement by holding a graduation ceremony at the end of the school year.
Separation between a child and his parents can be really devastating for both, so we use plenty of attention and care to ease the situation. Comforting words, songs, cuddling can divert the situation and be of great help.
If parents want, they can introduce their child gradually to the school. They can stay with them for an hour or so in the beginning, and then leave them there for progressively longer periods of time, until the child has adjusted. The trial period is 4 weeks after which time care arrangements will be reassessed.
