Bienvenue dans notre école!

Au P’tit Monde de San Francisco and Au P’tit Monde de la Péninsule are two French immersion preschools for children 2-5 years old. The lessons in the “Petite Ecole” and “Grande Ecole” take place entirely in French. 

Founded in 2004, Au P’tit Monde (APM) offers a quality French language immersion education for children ages 2-5.

Because of the way the brain develops in a child's early years, children are able to learn foreign languages much more easily at a younger age. From day one, APM Classes are taught using French immersion. Teachers utilize a combination of visual and verbal indicators when speaking, and students begin to understand and speak French right away.

The first years in school are vitally important for establishing independent work habits and developing language and social skills. Our program is designed to provide a firm grounding in these areas while encouraging cognitive, emotional and physical growth. Children engaging in teacher-guided play will learn how to follow directions and cooperate, while developing gross and fine motor skills, self control, confidence and self-esteem.



“We feel so fortunate to have found a place as loving and warm as APM. Both my daughter and son have attended this wonderful school and they have grown immensely in their behavioral, social and language abilities. Au P'tit Monde is an extremely nurturing place for children. We are so very lucky to have found Salima and the teachers at this wonderful school! "

- the Kruger Family


“ We feel so privileged to be able to send our children to APM. Even though it's lots of fun for the kids, they manage to squeeze in a lot of learning along the way.  I can't say enough about how happy we are with APM! They are such great influences on our children. I often think about the saying, "it takes a village to raise a child" - well, I'm so glad that APM is part of that village for our children! Thank you for being so wonderful! “

- the French Family


"Our daughter is thriving at APM thanks to the wonderful staff. They are loving, creative, energetic and well-educated, and it shows in the program they have created. In addition to learning a new language, the kids have the opportunity each day to explore new ideas, express themselves through art projects, music and dance, and use their imaginations in play.  We could not have asked for more in a preschool."
