Les Petits Bleus is a baby and toddler class designed to teach your little ones French in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
As we know, these little people have an enormous capacity to learn and we aim to capitalise on their ability to absorb information and their insatiable appetite for learning at this young age. Research also suggests that learning a second (or more) language boosts problem-solving, critical-thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multitask.
But we don’t put any pressure on our children; the best way for children to learn is when they are stress-free, and the learning takes place in an interactive and fun environment. That’s why our classes don’t feel
like French lessons – we teach language through games, stories, lots of songs and two-way conversation.
WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?
All babies and toddlers can benefit from Les Petits Bleus classes, from birth up to circa 4 years old. It has been proven that babies can start understanding words from as early as 6 months – far earlier than they
begin to speak. We cover a wide range of vocabulary and all conversation is in French, yet the way in which it’s delivered is engaging on many different levels and therefore different ages will benefit greatly from the
DO I NEED TO SPEAK THE LANGUAGE?
No, don’t worry about that! While a lot of French will be spoken during the class, we make sure everyone is following along.
You will receive material throughout the course. As parents/ minders, you will probably enjoy the class more if you can learn the regular songs we sing, but no prior language skills are required (although hopefully you will come away having learned a thing or two yourself!)
