An environment conducive to child development
At La Petite Ecole, the children play, build, learn and evaluate themselves in a caring family structure. The school’s exceptional environment, with its natural, wooded and peaceful setting, and its nearby sports facilities, is an additional asset. For older children, the cocoon of Alliance Française promotes the development of linguistic and cultural skills. School is not only the place where children start to learn, but it also plays an active role in their development.
In light of the teachings of neuroscience, we now know that fully relaxed children learn better. La Petite Ecole makes every effort to ensure the well-being of each child by offering support that best meets their needs.
SELF-CONFIDENCE & SELF-ESTEEM
From a young age, children need support to grow, overcome obstacles and persevere. They are highly dependent on those around them, who give them, or not, the confidence and self-esteem to progress. At La Petite Ecole, we believe that teaching children to value themselves as individuals is the greatest gift an adult can give them. Parents and teachers must therefore constantly show their pupils/children that they believe in their ability to improve and overcome difficulties.
To this end, our philosophy fully integrates mistakes into the learning process: our teaching team is trained to value the process and efforts of pupils, rather than the result. Children are encouraged to do things for themselves, experiment and try things out.
La Petite École, a small-scale, caring and joyful school!
