This School was the first place I felt at home after moving to the US from Europe! I had been in a French Immersion School in Germany, and it made me feel accepted right away, despite my language barrier at a young age. Not only did I learn French there (and through the rest of the Immersion Program) but I also learned English there! Two for one! The teachers were amazing, and many of the same ones are still there. They put an exceptional amount of care into the education they provide to each individual child.

Bonjour - Come tour our school. We now accept enrollment for students 2.5 to 6 years old. We care deeply about our students. We strive to give our children a well rounded education through various academic and fun activities in a loving and caring French environment. We teach our students respect, kindness, and compassion. The students brighten our days :) See you soon! - A bientt!

We credit the LFS with giving our now 8th grade student a solid foundation to build his education upon. He started learning a second language in this nurturing creative caring environment at the LFS and continues to speak fluent French now that he's heading into high school. The fun yet rigorous 3 year program gave him a global window to many French speaking countries. After school and summer programs meant the fun and learning could continue all year!

Our daughter is completing her second year at Little French School. The caring environment and small school size have allowed her to blossom. The curriculum is academically stimulating (by the end of the year kids are sooo ready for Kindergarten) but not at the expense of creativity and fun. They do yoga, bake, perform plays and songs, and they go on all kinds of great field trips. Daily craft and art projects. Outdoor play every day. Oh, and did I mention that they learn French? Beyond the many cognitive and social benefits of learning a foreign language (which will last a lifetime), it's also a great head start for Charlemagne!

Wonderful school! My two 17-year-old kids started their French immersion education here many years ago. Their preschool teacher still teaches there! It was and still is a nurturing learning environment for the children with a lot of individual attention from well-qualified teachers. Best preschool in town!
