Les petits ateliers

after-school club for bilingual children

Les petits ateliers



Les Petits Ateliers, our weekly French after-school club for bilingual children aged 3 and above, is now ONLINE.


Stories, songs, crafts and a gentle approach to reading and writing for the older children. Through immersive, play-led learning, we bring French culture to life.

Our exclusive curriculum is put together by our experienced teaching director, Florence. Themes change regularly to ensure progression, motivation and renewed interest. Activities vary each week and include singing, storytelling, puppetry, drama, arts and crafts, science experiments and exploration of the seasons – to name but a few. As the children get older and move through the classes, we integrate more reading, writing and elements of grammar to ensure they can enjoy a lifetime of reading and writing - in French!

And of course, the teacher will always be accompanied by our famous sidekick: Loulou la Tortue, the funniest, cheekiest tortoise around! 


We work in small groups so the children get dedicated attention, which means spaces are limited.

A gentle initiation to more formal learning, including reading and writing, through child-led and play-based activities.

Learning revolves around different themes, carefully chosen to excite and stimulate young minds.
