What you'll learn in this kids french class:

Toddlers will laugh, play, explore, and stay active all summer long during week-long day camps. Each week includes language lessons plus a variety of activities including cooking, art, music, yoga, and more, along the theme: the Tour de France. Your children will discover the regions along this summer’s Tour de France while the cyclists attempt to win medals in the very same regions!

The Half-day (9am-12pm): The Half-day gives parents and toddlers an excellent opportunity to get a taste of FIAF’s à petits pas program offered during the school year. Please provide your child with 1 nut-free snack if they are attending the Half-day camp.

The Full-day (9am-4pm): In the Full-day camp, your child will be able to enjoy the full FIAF French experience, including daily afternoon walks to observe Central Park’s flora and fauna. For children attending the Full-day camp, please provide 2 nut-free snacks and a cold lunch, as well as a blanket and doudou (comfort item such as a stuffed animal) for nap time.

Prerequisites: Camps are open to all levels of French including native French-speaking toddlers. Children must be at least 3 years old at the start of camp. They should be toilet-trained and accustomed to separation.

Complete the full Tour de France! Sign up for all eight weeks for maximum fun and learning.
