Bienvenue à l'école des Petits
Open since 2011, l’école des petits is a French preschool for children from 2-1/2 to 5 years. Located in St. Helena, California, in the heart of the Napa Valley, l’école des petits aims to open young children to a foreign language in order to give them a learning experience which is different from a traditional preschool and to prepare them for their entry in Kindergarten.
French Immersion Preschool Program
At l’école des petits we use the « Génération 5 »
program for the 3 and 4 years sections of the French preschools
(petite et moyenne section de maternelle). Génération 5 is the
number 1 French editor for school programs in education and learning
for different ages, entirely created by French teachers and approved
by the French National Education Ministery.
The goal of l’école des petits is to help the child, by learning the French language, to develop his creativity, personality, memory and comprehension as well as his autonomy, to give him the fundamentals needed for school at the age of 5.
At l’école des petits the entire morning takes place in French, with some English words only if necessary. We are always amazed by young children's faculty to learn and memorize. But most important, we want children to enjoy learning French. That’s why an important time of the day is dedicated to art, music, storytelling and poetry.
- « L’école des Petit » is open from 9am to 12 :30pm* Monday
(*Optional: daycare is available until 2:30pm for an extra fee.)
