Preschool Program

Ages 3 – 5

Our preschool program will prepare your child for the start of their scholastic journey with the added benefit of French Immersion. We cover developmental learning processes that give your child a jump-start on their way to kindergarten.

At the Alliance Française de Chicago, we believe that each child should receive individual attention as well as the best education possible. For that reason, classes are arranged by age and we welcome a maxiumum of 10 children.

All levels of French welcome! Classes are conducted in French, with assistance in English only when necessary.

Schedule a visit to our Children's Center. We will walk you through a typical day and answer all your questions.
