BonjourKidz offers opportunities for children to enjoy learning French in a fun and active way.
Gabrielle is a native French speaker who came to England after obtaining a degree at a French University. Whilst raising her twins, she gained a Level 3 in Childcare and followed numerous primary language development programs accredited by Brighton & Hove Council. Gabrielle is training at the moment to become a Forest School Leader.
Gabrielle has always been passionate about introducing French to young children. She believes it is the key to gaining the confidence to speak French or any other modern language later on in life. She was introduced to her second language, English, at a very early age and it motivated her to join in and speak during her English lessons at secondary school and later on, to live and work in the UK.
Gabrielle set up BonjourKidz in 2004 to offer the same opportunity to children and has been teaching in schools and nurseries ever since.
As it was very important for her to raise her own children bilingual, in 2007 she co-founded the non-profit association Les Franglophones to support French bilingual families.
In 2016, Gabrielle set up a French holiday club for pre-school and primary school aged children, in order to immerse them in French culture and language and therefore increase their confidence.
Gabrielle is following Forest School Leader course a she is keen to create a relaxed and calm environment surrounded by nature. Children will be able to learn French and benefit from Forest School environment to develop to their full potential and to learn resourcefulness.
