Les Petits Amis is a French immersion summer day-program where toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners learn French through fun and developmentally appropriate educational activities. The day is divided into two sessions:

  • The morning session (8:30 am to 12:30 pm) offers more structured activities to help kids develop four skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing through activities such as games, music, movement, cooking, arts, science.
