Class Experience

You are considering immersing your child in a French preschool - congratulations! This is an exciting moment and opportunity for them to grow not only as a young person, but as a citizen of the world.

The Language and Laughter Studio, located in Boerum Hill for thirteen years, boasts a creative, artistic, math and science integrated, play-based progressive French education that has welcomed families and seen them grow over the years. 

The Mini-Maternelle balances French education and culture with progressive American education values to create a unique program that nurtures each child as an individual and cultivates their creativity, independence, and passion for the world around them. We help passionate and curious little ones turn into confident children who are certain of their interests and likes, but also ask questions and think of others in a generous and kind way.

We have two classes at the Mini-Maternelle:

Petite Section (ages 2.5 - 3.5 years old)
Monday - Tuesday - Thursday - Friday
9:30AM - 12PM OR 9:30AM - 2:30PM

Grande Section (ages 3.5 - 4.5 years old)
Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday - Thursday - Friday
9:30AM - 12PM OR 9:30AM - 2:30PM

Early drop-off option at 8:30 AM.

We offer "l'Atelier", our after school program for Mini-Maternelle children, from 2:30pm to 4pm.

For the 2022-2023 school year, we are hoping to offer our open-house in person for all fully-vaccinated adults with proper masking and social distancing. If health data indicates that this is unsafe, we will hold it virtually.  

We will invite all applicants to join us for this session on Thursday evening, November, 18th.
