The Language and Laughter Studio offers a play-based French preschool program unlike any other school in the area. We combine the founding principles of Progressive Education with a rigorous French immersion program designed to maintain and foster fluency over-the-course of the program. We have been a fixture in the French American community in Brooklyn for over 15 years and are innovative leaders in Progressive Education. 

Our school is a warm and nurturing space for children ages 2.5 to 5, to expand their thinking, build confidence and resilience, and learn to approach relationships with understanding and empathy. Children leave our program fluent in French and nearly all of them continue to study in French in bilingaul public and private schools. 

We believe that a child’s development and curiosity is most inspired by hands-on learning. By touching, building, feeling, and moving with their whole bodies and hearts. We encourage children to constantly try out new ideas, experiment, learn from unforeseen outcomes, persevere, express themselves in many ways, and feel empowered to make and articulate their own choices.

Our highly dedicated teachers develop unique curriculum each year based on our students' individual and collective interests, life experiences, learning styles, and personal development.
