About La Petite Ecole
A Place to Shine
Established in 2006, La Petite Ecole is a home-based Kindergarten Prep Preschool that offers a bilingual French / English program to children ages 2-5. With our progressive and holistic early childhood education philosophy, we understand that each child has unique needs and interests. We provide the environment and tools your child needs to thrive to the best of their abilities.
Did you know that recent research on bilingual and multi-lingual students has demonstrated that learning a second language at an early age does more than give our children the gift of being able to speak another language? It actually "supercharges" their brains, stimulating the neurons to form more connections, eventually leading to better academic performance.
La Petite Ecole offers a full-time program from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday - Friday. Monthly tuition covers breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack, the bilingual curriculum and all school supplies.
Patricia Ayité is a certified French teacher, fluent in French and English, a world traveler, artist and mother of 6 (now adult) children. She is CPR and First Aid certified. She is assisted by her husband Alex Ayité, a PE teacher with a Sports Degree from France, also CPR and First Aid certified.
The school is licensed as a large Family Child Care Home (8 children)

A State-licensed facility, La Petite Ecole pledges to provide the highest quality French and English Preschool program to children ages 2-5. From language and literacy development to social skills and creative expression, the children at La Petite Ecole are constantly being exposed to new activities and ideas, all in a structured, safe and loving home environment. We build on the strengths and interests of each child to help build a solid educational foundation.
"Patricia is amazing with the children. We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our 2 year old. We will be staying with her as long as we can. The language, art, education and overall joy that our son receives at "La petite ecole" is phenomenal. We couldn't have asked for better, truly. It is evident that the children thrive in this environment because they are always happy to arrive and sad to leave. Our son's language and writing skills have improved exponentially...even his eating habits have improved! He is a much better "eater" (those of you with a two-year old know the struggles), and he is just flourishing into this wonderful little guy excited to explore and interact with the world. We were hoping for a bilingual education experience and we are receiving that but so much more. We will forever be grateful to Patricia for providing this optimal exploratory space for the foundation of our child's education experience."
