Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this kids camp:

Introduce your 12 to 24-month-old toddler to the sounds of French!

In this à petits pas (age 1) class, your child will be immersed in fun activities for the eyes and ears while learning to recognize new sounds and familiar objects in a French-language environment. All activities are designed especially for very young children and include greetings, songs, movement, stories, art and crafts, and more.

The interactions and activities promote child and parent bonding.

One parent or caregiver must attend class with the child.

Our year-round à petits pas program encourages your petit to discover the language through a structured curriculum based on a child’s daily life, enriched with games, songs, dance, and arts-and-crafts. Classes are offered for toddlers who are new to French as well as those growing up in a French-speaking family. Our qualified and experienced teachers will make each class engaging and fun for your child.

Specifically designed for children ages 1–5 by experts in early childhood education, our curriculum emphasizes the importance of experiential and multi-sensory learning techniques to help children develop cognitively, socially, and emotionally. In this program, the teacher uses music, movement, visual arts, and theater-based games to teach toddlers French. Toddlers will be able to engage with the five senses, memorize vocabulary, understand and pronounce short sentences. Additionally, this program is very helpful if you are looking for a French or bilingual preschool.

In à petits pas classes, toddlers will socialize through the following interactive games and routines:

  • Speaking: Conversation skills are emphasized through routine questions and weekly vocabulary.
  • Singing: Toddlers will absorb the musicality of the language through songs and comptines.
  • Moving: Toddlers will follow choreographed movements to associate words with movements. They will also relax and focus on words and ideas through yoga exercises.
  • Reading: The teacher will read stories and poetry connected to the vocabulary.
  • Creating: Toddlers will create visual artwork to review colors and shapes.

Parents receive vocabulary lists, selection of phrases, as well as Spotify song playlists for continued learning and fun at home. Emails are sent to parents on a regular basis to keep them abreast of the program including special events.

Refund Policy

To withdraw from a class, please send a written request at least 4 business days prior to the first day of class. You may submit a written request by email to [email protected]

When you wish to withdraw from a class you have two options:

  • A refund (less an $85 cancellation fee) issued to the original form of payment. If the request is made within 2 business days of registration, a full tuition refund will be given.
    • 5-week classes that meet 2 hours or fewer per week will be subject to a $45 cancellation fee.
    • 1-day camps will be subject to a cancellation fee of 30% of the camp tuition with refund issued to original form of payment provided the request to withdraw is submitted by the Friday before the week of camp; else only tuition credit will be issued.
  • A credit (valid for 1 year) issued to your account that can be used for another class, private lessons, or books. The cancellation fee is waived for this option.
After the first three hours or one week of class (whichever occurs first), only credit will be issued following a request for withdrawal. The cost for the number of classes that have occurred will be deducted from the total and a pro-rated tuition credit will be issued to the student’s account, valid for one year.

No refunds or credits are offered for books, specialty exams, or workshops. Refunds are not offered for private lessons, but you may reschedule your class.

Summer classes will be subject to the same refund policies as classes during the year with the following exceptions:

  • Summer Fun in French Camps for Ages 1-17:
    • No refunds will be issued after June 15.
    • Before June 15, a withdrawal fee ($175 for full day camps, $85 for half-day camps) will be deducted from the refund amount.
    • After June 15, you may withdraw any time before the start of the session for a full credit.
    • No withdrawals are accepted after the start of a program.
    • There are no allowances for absences, early withdrawals, or late starts. There is no pro-rating of fees.
Please allow up to two weeks for refunds or credits to be issued.

The school reserves the right to cancel classes and workshops, adjust curricula, and change teachers if necessary without advanced notice. Courses are typically cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, unavailability of a teacher, or inability to schedule appropriate instructional space. If your course is cancelled, you will be notified by telephone or email and given the option to transfer to another class, to receive a tuition credit, or to receive a full refund.
