APS Explorers™ Program – Aux Petits Soins, LLC™

APS Explorers™ Program

At this developmental stage, kids possess their greatest ability to absorb and retain a second language qualitatively similar to their native language. Phonological acquisition is time-sensitive, unlike grammar and vocabulary learning, which can happen at any age. Hence, the emphasis here is on speaking using the Listen. Absorb. Speak.™ method.


This year, we will only offer group in person classes (max. 5 students) and online or in person private classes.


  • Explorers I (6-18 months) – 25 minutes – Mondays at 5 p.m. and Fridays at 10:45 a.m.
  • Explorers II (18-36 months) – 35 minutes – Tuesdays at 5 p.m. and Fridays at 9:55 a.m.
  • Explorers III (3-5 yrs) – 45 minutes – Wednesdays at 5 p.m. and Fridays at 9 a.m.

There are four sessions per year:

  • Fall session runs Sep. 19-Dec. 11, 2022 (please note: there is no class the weeks of Oct. 17-23 and Nov. 21-27)
