Aux Petits Soins™ is a French cultural center offering private and group language immersion classes, as well as group activities for both children and adults. At Aux Petits Soins, you design your own program. We provide the venue and the tools for people of all ages to learn (or re-learn, as the case may be) the French language and to soak in French culture. Your level of immersion is up to you.

The children’s programs start with kids as young as 3 months old and continue through high school-age students, using a three-step immersion system we call Listen. Absorb. Speak.™ This program is designed to enable children to learn French the same way they learned their native language — through repetition of common words and phrases, using songs, toys, and interactive games as reinforcement.

The APS curriculum consists of three levels that are split into classes based on age and developmental stage.
