I love APS as do my children! I feel I have a decent ability with only a 15 months of studying. My children love the instructor and really look forward
to learning French. My oldest daughter has been studying for about 4 years and her progress is impressive! I would highly recommend for families, adults and children!

My kids (ages 3 and 1) have been part of Aux Petits Soins for the past year and what an adventure! It’s been wonderful to see them enjoy playing and
singing (and of course learning) in a language immersion program with other children. I am very thankful that Gaelle and her family bring the beautiful gift of French language and culture to the Lansing community.

My 8-month son and I love going to French each week. Gaëlle is really fantastic with babies and makes it easy for parents (even those who can’t speak French) to
engage in class. We sing some of the songs at home and Joel loves them
