FIAF’s à petits pas program offers creative, themed classes, taught by experienced native French-speaking teachers to help your child gain an early grasp on the French language.

In à petits pas (age 4) class, your child will be exposed to more vocabulary and language structures. They will learn to make very simple sentences while being introduced to written French. Toddlers will act out stories, play games, sing, and dance. A light snack is provided. During snack time, children practice lively routines in French that demonstrate the French savoir faire.

Classes with course code APP3/4 are drop-off classes. Children must be potty-trained and accustomed to separation.

Speed up your child’s learning even more with à petits pas Plus, a special program that combines an 11-week à petits pas with a series of creative weekly workshops.
