About

Au P'tit Monde de San Francisco and Au P'tit Monde de la P ninsule are two French Immersion Preschools for children 2-5 year olds. The lessons in the "Petite Ecole" and "Grande Ecole" take place entirely in French. Because of the way the brain develops in a child's early years, children are able to learn foreign languages much easier at a younger age. From day one, APM Classes are taught using French immersion. Teachers utilize a combination of visual and verbal indicators when speaking, and students begin to understand and speak French right away.

The children at Au P'tit Monde come from many different cultures and backgrounds. Through stories, songs and games children learn to understand and express themselves in French. More than half of our students come from families where little or no French is spoken. Learning a language is easiest for young children and parents are often surprised how quickly their children pick the language up and bring home songs and poems from school.
The school is in a beautiful brick building on a tree lined street, where the many windows enhance our many rich learning environments. The classrooms are large with bright, spacious areas that give a holistic feeling of a home away from home. Each classroom has a mini atelier, a reading area/meeting area, building area, light table and dramatic play area.

The school is conveniently located five minutes away from freeway 101, the International School of the Peninsula and IKEA.
