Welcome to LE JARDIN DES ENFANTS

Le Jardin des Enfants is the first expansion of the incredibly successful language programs created by Pascale Setbon at the Language and Laughter Studio (LLS) in Brooklyn, NY (www.thelanguageandlaughterstudio.com). We promote the social, emotional and cognitive well-being of children through the creative exploration of a foreign language. Taught exclusively in French, our integrated approach seeks to stimulate a child's natural impulse to learn and explore through play while meeting the educational standards of France's Curriculum nationale.

We offer small, play-centered classes for children and their caregivers, as well as a preschool with our exclusive Families First Steps in French program, all taught exclusively in French. We look forward to serving you!
