French is Fun Language Club©

An opportunity for children ages 5-12 to enjoy after-school enrichment in French!

This time will include playtime, snack time, hands-on activities, and much more, entirely in French!  Language Club is available daily from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.  Parents have the option to enroll their children for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days a week.  Transportation is available for an additional fee.

Children who wish to begin or expand their language abilities (children from early immersion programs, children of native French speakers, or children who have come to love the French language through other means) will benefit from interactive and hands-on communicative lessons.

High School Internships

La Petite Ecole welcomes high school students with a minimum of French 3 level to intern in our school.  The benefits of such an experience are too numerous to list.  Please contact Joelle Quoirin to discuss this wonderful opportunity. Shown here is a former intern’s end-of-term project on La Petite Ecole.
