Life at the Petite Ecole Kentoise

Our classes are conducted in a fun way around a structured program.


As all lessons are given exclusively in French, we ask that children understand a minimum of French even if they speak it very little or not at all. Our teachers adapt the programs according to the level of the children in their class. 

Classes take place on Saturday mornings from 10.00 to 12.30 (30 sessions, excluding school holidays).

We have four small classes of 10 to 15 children maximum.

La Petite École Kentoise provides textbooks and activity books for each child. The notebooks come home with the children for the holidays. ​


Breaktime lasts 15 minutes and is always outside. Each child must have seasonal clothing and a snack (but nothing with nuts!)
