APS Explorers™ Program – Aux Petits Soins™

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 in person or online, private or group classes (max. 5 students).


  • Explorers I (6-18 months) – 25 minutes – Tuesdays at 5 p.m.
  • Explorers II (18-36 months) – 35 minutes – Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.
  • Explorers III (3-5 yrs) – 45 minutes – Wednesdays at 5 p.m.

There are four sessions per year:

  • Fall session runs Sep. 18-Dec. 10, 2023 (please note: there is no class Oct. 4-8 and 30-31, Nov. 20-26)
  • Winter session runs Jan. 8-Mar. 17, 2024
  • Spring session runs Apr. 1-Jun. 9, 2024 (please note: there is no class May 7-12 and 27)
