Pre-school 3-5 years old
French way of life for little ones
A warm welcome to BonjourKidz French Pre-school
We are based in Falmer and in Hove where children will be able to safely explore, play and make new friends in French.
Mondays and Fridays until 2pm, we will be in Falmer old village school, a little heaven surrounded by nature and woodlands (10mn from Hove) .
We have limited spaces for whole day option with the afternoon in Hove (with drop off and pick up near Hove Park).
We work closely with the local French association les Franglophones as we value the importance of being part of a community and creating an exceptional care for your children.
We welcome children with all levels of French (very successful during our holiday club!).
In a warm and nurturing environment, your child will be able to flourish joyfully to his/her full potential :
- we will follow EYFS framework using a holistic approach with child-let and teacher-led activities,
- introduce mindfulness to our daily life to become more compassionate and self-aware.
- we will develop their confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in the woodland.
- we will create space to allow children to inspire to creative play and exploration.
To achieve all this we have very small number of children with a high ratio adult/child.
We will offer a French way of life with the importance of meal time, family and discussions adults/children.
Everyone will speaks French to their own abilities :
For bilingual children, this is an opportunity to consolidate their French. We have noticed, through Les Franglophones, children who have spent time (even small) in a French school environment become much more confident linguists.
Most importantly , this allows them to be able to communicate/bond better with their French relatives.
For non French speaking families, we will offer adapted French lessons to the children & use visual aids to help with understanding at group time.
Seeing the world through two languages helps with cognitive development, mental flexibility, reasoning and problem solving. more info.
