French-Swiss private school in Paris

Early yearsFrom 2 to 6 years old

In pre-nursery, the children may attend for either half or full days, however we recommend a minimum of three half days to fully benefit from our programmes. From the age of 3 children are required to attend full time. For those who need a daytime sleep, there is a quiet space where they can slumber in peace.

The Early Years classrooms are bright spaces encompassing different learning areas, providing various opportunities for young children to explore, investigate and learn in a safe, stimulating environment. The children spend plenty of time outdoors and the classroom is extended to the school gardens and the nearby forest and orchards. 

There is substantial evidence that indicates that planned and well taught outdoor education curricula can have a positive effect on students. These include educational, interpersonal, social and critical thinking skills, as well as mental and physical health, which are an increasing priority for parents and educators globally.

Maths and language teaching

Maths and language teaching takes place in the mornings when the children are most receptive.

They take part in activities both as a whole class, in small groups and on an individual basis.

Work is very hands-on and practical, and children are only introduced to the idea of recording their work once they are ready.

Play and exploration

Play and exploration is an essential part of children's learning and general development.

Children are provided with opportunities throughout the day to engage in a range of creative and imaginative activities, sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of arts and craft, design, technology, music, movement, dance and role play activities.

We take into account the physical developmental needs of children at this age through the use of the neighbouring forest and orchards.

These - along with the green house and the garden where the children can grow herbs, berries and vegetables - provide endless learning opportunities.


The main language in class and for all activities is English, however we provide daily French classes that are included in the curriculum.

The children will spend 45 minutes per day learning French, and thanks to this intense programme they will rapidly acquire the skills to be confident in the language.
