    Their summer stage is just a shame. Unless you want some expensive Free play. The teacher have done NOTHING AT ALL… an adult watching a few children play. Such a waste of money! never again. The American Section should not recommend it.

    My 2 kids love this school. The classes are small; pre-K and kindergarten classes follow the Montessori education. There is a real multi-cultural environment for both students and parents. If you are new to France, the parent association will give you the tips to help you get settled.
