Our Vision and Our Mission

At Petits Lascars, we believe that early childhood lays the foundation for learning, behaviour, and self-assurance that will shape a child's entire life.

The experiences your child has during this crucial period shape their brain, their ability to learn, to socialise, and to confidently tackle daily challenges.

Our mission is to broaden your child's cultural horizons from a young age, supporting them in developing their personality and independence, and equipping them with the necessary tools for long-term academic success.

We believe in a caring school environment centered on the well-being of each child and adapted to their own pace and individual needs.

Our primary goal is to nurture a love for learning and foster each child’s individual growth and self-confidence so that they develop their full potential.

Our Philosophy

At Les Petits Lascars, we provide high-quality education that follows the French National Education curriculum.

We accompany your child in their school discovery journey, the acquisition of their autonomy and their self-confidence. We aim to empower them to become active participants in their learning process.

Our teachers adopt an active pedagogy that stimulates children’s involvement and learning.

We strongly believe that plurilingualism is a major asset for children. It is proven that bilingual/plurilingual children tend to sharper as well as more open-minded and receptive to new ideas.

Language acquisition takes place through immersion in an enriching learning environment that embraces cultural diversity, and seamlessly integrates into the child's daily routine.

In order to promote language interactions and to cater to each child’s specific needs, our classes are kept small with a maximum of 14/15 children per class.

Our teaching team comprises attentive, passionate and dedicated teachers and assistants. They are led by a certified Head of School from the French National Ministry of Education.

All our teachers are qualified, experienced, and native speakers. We are committed to ensuring that they possess the necessary qualifications and expertise to deliver the optimal learning experience for your child.

Our assistants are also meticulously selected based on their qualifications and experience, ensuring that they meet our stringent standards of care and support for the children.
