French Language and Contemporary Art Preschool

La Petite Ecole is a French immersion boutique preschool in NYC with locations in Greenwich Village and the Upper West Side. Our arts-curated program prepares children to become fully bilingual and bicultural, ready to read and write in French by Kindergarten.

An Early Immersion into French Language & Culture

The mission of La Petite Ecole is to immerse children in French language and culture, and develop their verbal, motor, social and critical thinking skills through a developmentally appropriate, arts-integrated curriculum.

Imaginative, hands-on projects are facilitated by native French-speaking educators, incorporating the artworks of acclaimed, visiting contemporary artists from around the world.

La Petite Ecole is a nurturing environment with an educational philosophy that fosters self-expression, creativity, initiative and collaboration with peers.

"It's more than a place where kids acquire the skill of speaking French; they also learn the language of drawing, the language of music, and the language of table manners." - West View News
