If you would like your child to learn French in an engaging environment while exploring in nature, The Language and Laughter Studio's 2020-21 Mini-Maternelle program will be the perfect fit for you! We have just two spaces available in for children ages 3 - 5. For the past 13 years, LLS has cultivated an outstandingly unique, high quality, and rigorous French program for young children. We provide a secure and loving place for children to learn and play. Our well-trained, highly dedicated teachers work to build on each student’s unique strengths, interests, and learning style while taking into account his or her needs and levels in terms of intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth. Also, 100% of the children who graduate from LLS leave the program fluent in French and have gotten into their top kindergarten choice - many of them going to public or private dual language (French-English) programs. In the coming school year, we will begin the fall by spending as many mornings as possible outdoors in Fort Greene Park. Except for days when weather does not permit, we will be learning together in an outdoor classroom. We want to be outdoors because it provides both the safest space in which to socialize and an inspiring educational environment. We will then return to LLS each day after lunch for children in the extended day program to continue their explorations in the classroom settings with their teachers and classmates.
