Our classes

Using songs, stories and interactive activities, Le Petite French school baby and toddler classes take place during term time in locations across Devon and Somerset.

Online classes, accessible whatever your location, can be fitted in around your own schedule and use La Petite French School’s unique methods to engage and involve the young students during every session.

We also bring La Petite French School sessions to nurseries and playgroups as well as providing group sessions for home educators or schools.

Baby & Toddler Classes

Our unique classes use classic French nursery rhymes, as well as our own interactive songs and games to make every session fun for both the children and their adults!

Each 40 minute session guides the group through a new topic such as the seasons, family, colours and animals, learning a range of essential French vocabulary along the way.

These classes are suitable whatever the child’s background, with both English speaking and multilingual families enjoying the benefits learning a second language brings.

Each Lesson has the same structured routine providing a balance between play and rest avoiding over or under-stimulation. Short play breaks give the babies time to play together and you, the opportunity to meet other parents.

La Petite French School follows the school terms. A full term of 12 classes and accompanying flashcards, game, colouring activity or book costs £95 payable in advance to hold your place. For additional siblings, the price is reduced to £65.

Nurseries & Playgroups

La Petite French School offers unique, fun and interactive French classes through nurseries and playgroups throughout Devon and Somerset.

Typically our experienced and native French speakers offer short sessions, ranging from 20 to 40 minutes, for a range of ages. With French now being taught in primary schools, this early exposure to the language is proven to give students a head-start.

The benefits of learning a second language range from improved social interaction to stronger reading and writing skills. By offering French classes in nurseries and playgroups, we are proud to be able to share these benefits with even more babies and toddlers.

Home Educators

Supporting your child through learning a second language can be a daunting prospect. That’s where La Petite French School steps in, offering small group sessions to home educators where your child can learn from native French speakers.

A world away from the language lessons many of us experienced at school, these sessions support learning in a fun and relaxed environment.

If you are interested in setting up a regular class within your own home Ed community and you are based in the Devon or Somerset area, get in touch via our contact us page.
