Though students here have plenty of opportunities to practice their français, the curriculum goes beyond French language lessons to include art projects and hands-on activities. Little learners in the Preschool program (ages two and a half to four) will take field trips to nearby museums, like the Met and MOMA, and collaborate with professional artists through La Petite Ecole's conenction to the Virgil de Voldere Gallery. There's also a special Mommy and Me program for toddlers and their caretakers, in which les enfants learn basic French through art, movement and song. Ages 18 months to 4.
