Childcare in Paris for school holidays

Do you need childcare during the school holiday periods? More than a Parisian recreation center, The Garden Academy offers English vacation camps for children age 3 to 10 years old, during every school holiday period. Your children will be welcomed from 9:00 to 18:20 from Monday to Friday in one of our 3 Parisian centers to discover or improve their knowledge of the English language through a large variety of activities and workshops.

More than a recreation center in Paris, an English vacation camp for children

Our desire is to foster children’s natural curiosity and to make them want to learn thanks to a “fun-tastic” environment. Every vacation camp comes with a new theme where our teachers and animators invite children on a fun journey that lasts all week. The 100% immersive environment in English allows for more effective language learning. As opposed to more traditional English classes for children, we offer a rich experience thanks to the diversity of activities, immersive environment, but also the quality of the supervision. Offer your children an unforgettable holiday!

Varied workshops for a comprehensive program

The Garden vacation camps are the perfect opportunity for children to discover new activities suited for their age. Every day new workshops are proposed, in connection with the theme of the camp: Music workshops, science, reading, arts and crafts, sports, and games. These workshops will allow children to develop their creativity, motricity, logic, and more, all in an immersive English environment! The Garden is unlike childcare at other recreation centers, we offer an experience that will foster children’s development in many ways!

Progress in English guaranteed!

All of our activities are provided in a 100% English-speaking environment that allows us to reinforce the children’s language comprehension and oral skills in English. Take advantage of the school holidays to immerse your children from an early age, regularly, in an English-speaking environment and give them the chance to master English without effort!

During our immersive English courses…


Each week, a new theme is set up, serving as the common thread connecting all of the activities proposed during the camp: musical workshops, science, reading, arts and crafts, sports and games!


Rest and reading times are scheduled at regular intervals throughout the day, allowing children to recover during the day to promote the integration of all the knowledge acquired during our activities.


Music workshops give children the opportunities to continue their studies in English while learning the principles of music, rhythms and sounds. These activities also contribute to the development of their English vocabulary


Outdoor activities are organized everyday and take place once or twice a day, weather permitting. These moments outside are essential to let off steam and to optimal learning conditions during classes.


Throughout the camp, rituals are put in place within the different groups, songs sung by the whole group to reinforce the spirit of camaraderie and reinforce the children’s mastery of the English language.


Related to the theme of the week’s camp, these workshops promote the learning of techniques of drawing, perspective and fundamental principles of art (color, composition, texture, balance, etc. …)
