French classes for children on Saturday mornings as well as private tuition and an extensive library.
Founded in Hackney in 2009, Les Crocodiles is a non-profit organisation regulated by the Charity Commission since 2014. Its object is the teaching of the French language and the promotion of French culture.
Over 150 children come every week to learn French at La Petite Ecole des Crocodiles!
La Petite Ecole Des Crocodiles, A SCHOOL PART OF THE FLAM NETWORK (Francais Langue Maternelle)
Our children classes last one or two hours according to child age.
3 types of classes are offered :
- Minis for children aged between 6 and 24 months old (1st group) and 2 and 4 years old (2nd group), for all children regardless of their native language
- The FLAM Curriculum, for children aged 3+ (French as a mother tongue)
- The FLE Curriculum, for children aged 5+ (French as a foreign language).
Note that Les Crocodiles may also schedule classes during the week. A minimum of 5 children is required for such classes to be organised.
From beginners to more advanced levels, we will create a programme fully adapted to your needs. All lessons are carried in small groups of 3 people or less and can happen at the school as well as individually at your place.
We can teach French as a recreational activity as well as for preparation of exams.
Les Crocodiles is also The Library! There are more than 1,500 books and magazines to choose from.
It can be found every Saturday morning during La Petite Ecole classes as well as online! The Library is a great opportunity to encourage reading in French for children of all ages.
Les Crocodiles is also Croc Ciné : a little French film festival for children and adults alike. Supported by the London Film Hub, the first edition in 2014-2015 was a great success! The next edition is on the way... Watch this space!
