Coloring and story telling is an essential part of our preschool curriculum. Our coloring book will introduce your child to bilingualism. Order your free copy today and listen to our students read it for you!

"From a very young age, we give children the opportunity to create, try, reproduce, invent, transform... They receive the gift of bilingualism at the time their brain is the most flexible. They explore literature, music, movement, math, art in both French and English.
I have been teaching at the LFSF for over 15 years, and what continues to impress me the most, is the joy and pride in the children's eyes when they admire their creations."
Julien PINOL | Preschool teacher
"Pedagogical innovation, creativity, confidence and high standards characterize my teaching. Oral expression has a central place in my classes because I am convinced that it favors interaction between students and gives them the means to be at the heart of the learning process. I embark daily, with a renewed enthusiasm, on the human adventure of helping my students understand the world through literature and the practice of French. The conditions at the LFSF are exceptional for both children and adults. This educational community makes this emulation possible."
