Founded in 2000, Petite Ecole welcomes children ages 2-5 into a warm and enriching environment, pairing a French immersion education with the Montessori teaching philosophy. With a low student-to-teacher ratio, PEI focuses on the development of the whole child, teaching the fundamental skills of early childhood while encouraging grace, courtesy, independence and critical thinking.   As a non-profit organization, parental support and involvement are an integral part of our community.

Our daughter has truly enjoyed Petite Ecole Internationale. It has provided a wonderful foundation for her learning and a strong introduction to French.
