A rich and enjoyable school experience

First Steps School is an English language based preschool and Wednesday English programme located in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, established in 1993. We seek to build a child’s confidence while providing an environment where children are stimulated intellectually, socially, physically, and artistically. Our values include treating children with friendliness and respect, and helping children take their first steps toward autonomy and independence.

About Us

homeslide5

We have been operating in the same location, meeting the needs of children for 23 years. We accept children ages 2 to 4 for our pre-school and “petite section” programme, and children ages 4 to 8 for our Wednesday English Club.

Our play-based curriculum for 2 to 4 year olds ensures students are well supported for entry to the school system, and our curriculum for 4 to 8 year olds focuses on building and enhancing English reading and writing skills.

Wednesday English Club

First Steps offers two separate English programmes on Wednesdays, to support children in their language development beyond preschool. The programmes focus on age-appropriate language acquisition, and on developing and enhancing reading and writing skills.

Our Wednesday English Programmes are led by experienced teachers and intended to provide children with native-level English instruction from ages 4 to 8 years old.

Why Choose First Steps

First Steps welcomes children of all languages, backgrounds and abilities; we believe strongly in nuturing each child as an individual. We are a supportive and positive environment that follows the French national education standards, but in English. Our location includes a private courtyard for outdoor exercise and play (weather permitting), which our students enjoy two times a day. First Steps accepts students from 2 years old, and your child need not be toilet-trained to join our school.
