2 to 3 years old

The Garden Academy welcomes children between the ages of 2 and 3 years old into our preschool program. Much more than a biligual creche in Paris, this program prepares children for entry into kindergarten in a 100% English speaking environment. It is in a suitable and safe environment that your child will explore their own passions and develop the skills they need to thrive both in school and life. Learning. English will happen naturally thanks to total immersion and highly qualified native English speaking teachers.


Yoga classes, mindfulness meditation sessions, gardening workshops…we offer a wide range of pratical life experiences as well as academic and dartisic subjects. The preschool teachers nourish and develop children’s curiosity through exciting, stimulating and positve experiences.


At 2 years old, children are real little explorers who gradually develop their motor skills and understanding of the world around them. At the Garden Academy, children will practice their motor skills and develop their knowledge through classic and modern stories. They will learn phonics, literacy and basic mathematical principles.


Our program enables children to reach their full potential at an age where learning is at its peak. Our belief is that children are independent individuals who learn more easily through hands on experiences in a small group setting. Our learning methods are active – the children learn while taking part in their learning, as advocated by Montessori pedagogy.
