French For Kids
MAMAN & MOI
Birth - 5
(in Los Angeles)
This is a Parent & Me gathering offered to parents and caregivers who want to introduce French to their little ones. No prior French experience required although adults are invited and encouraged to participate. Emphasis is on music, exploration of different sounds and rhythms, the discovery of movements and color through colorful scarves, bubbles and other age appropriate props.
This is a gentle and playful introduction to music and to French.
FRENCH CLASS IN SCHOOLS
Preschool - Kindergarten Enrichment classes
(in Los Angeles)
This class is a playful introduction to French as a second language for young children through music, rhymes, rhythms, games, movements, and magical story-telling. Children are exposed to French in a natural and playful way. We will learn original songs from Sophie & Les Petits as well as French classics, play music together, dance and move around with scarves and different age-appropriate props. We end each class in a relaxing and mindful moment. This class covers the basics of introducing oneself, parts of the body, large movements, counting, and colors in French.
PARENT & ME / WORKSHOPS / SCHOOL ENRICHMENT
Birth - 5
This is a music appreciation program for little ones, with a global awareness twist
Inspired by the Montessori peace and cosmic education, a mindful approach, the love of music, and her passion for teaching, Sophie built Rhythmic Nation, a program promoting peace through global music education in early childhood. French chansons, Latin sounds, African rhythms, Spanish Flamenco, Middle Eastern belly-dancing... We tour the world through music! In these classes, we share real instruments from around the world, songs and dances to enrich children with a global vision of multiculturalism and a bring a sense of unity through music.
We offer school enrichment classes, workshops, Parent & Me classes and events.
