French Language Playgroup

Here's a joyful new way to discover French language and culture through play, from a global leader in French teaching and learning.

Welcome to Le Samedi des Tout Petits,

a new Saturday morning French-language playgroup for toddlers and the essential grown-ups in their life. Toddlers and a parent-guardian or caregiver are invited to join us together on Saturday mornings right here at Lycée Français de New York (75th Street and York Avenue). This program is open to all families. No previous knowledge of French is needed. Classes are small. Book early to secure your spot!

Nathalie Terrière, Instructor

Toddlers learn French naturally and intuitively. By learning French in a playful and engaging environment, toddlers not only build their language skills, but can also improve their cognitive abilities, boost their confidence, and prepare them for interacting with peers in a group setting!

Le Samedi des Tout Petits is:

  • Led by a certified French Preschool instructor and an assistant from the Lycée Français de New York
  • For toddlers ages 1.5 to 4 yrs and a parent-guardian or caregiver 

What you can expect:

  • Adult-child activities, including art, movement, music, and games in French
  • Maximum 10 parent-guardian & child pairs per class
  • One adult must accompany each child
  • Previous knowledge of French is not required
