Toddlers learn, laugh, and play en français at FIAF's popular à petits pas program!

The à petits pas program follows a curriculum centered on the daily life of a child, with a multisensory teach-by-play approach to introduce your 12 to 24-month-old toddler to the sounds of French. The interactions and activities promote child and parent bonding en français.

In this à petits pas (age 1) class, your child will be immersed in fun activities for the eyes and ears while learning to recognize new sounds and familiar objects in a French-language environment. All activities are designed especially for very young children and include greetings, songs, movement, stories, art and crafts, and more.

Open to toddlers who are new to French as well as those growing up in a French-speaking family.

A light snack is provided.
