After just one class, we are hooked. This is the best way for kids to learn French, totally immersed with an enthusiastic and patient teacher. Songs, games, and laughter. Thank… you for the opportunity! Edited to add: Two semesters later and we are still loving Gaëlle and her classes. She gives 100 percent to the kids and these classes. Read more “Valery Huberts”
We absolutely love Aux Petits Soins! My 3-month-old daughter and I drive 1.5 hours from Midland once or twice per month so that we can enjoy the benefits of the… class. We would be going once or twice per week if we lived in Lansing. I cannot recommend it enough. Gaëlle is an absolute joy and has a talent for engaging even the youngest students. At just 8 weeks, my daughter was enthralled with the songs, colors and enthusiasm Gaëlle brings. I love that it is a relaxed, intimate atmosphere where the spontaneous needs of infants and toddlers are understood and welcomed. Read more “Breaha Wallin”
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. Read more “Christine Overway”
