About Petits Poussins UES

Petits Poussins UES is a bilingual preschool and daycare in the Upper East Side, New York. It welcomes students from six weeks to five years old. Our school provides bilingual classes that are inspired by the French national curriculum as well as the New York State standards.

Petits Poussins UES offers infant care and toddler care for ages 6 weeks to 24 months. We also offer a preschool program for ages 2 to 5 years old. Our classes are organized by age groups to allow homogeneous teaching. We follow a 1:3 teacher-student ratio for younger children and 1:10 for the older groups.

Our curriculum focuses in-depth on bilingualism and early language acquisition, along with the development of our children’s fine and gross motor skills and creativity. Our vocabulary-rich curriculum, infused with sing-along and read-aloud at all ages, helps our children develop vocabulary in a stress-free environment. This helps build a second language that our children are eager to communicate with by using what they have learned in class in their everyday lives and routine. At Petits Poussins UES, learning takes place in various ways, such as storytelling, singing, and drawing. We value all our children’s “multiple intelligences” and help them learn in the best atmosphere. Teaching is individualized according to each child’s needs.

Our Mission

In our French-English bilingual centers, we believe that everything is a part of language, whatever your native tongue is. Gestures, art, dance, and music – these are all forms of expression that can speak volumes. In our UES’ bilingual daycare and preschool, we believe that diversity is a strength in the world we live in and should continuously be celebrated. We want our students to be the next global leaders while becoming independent, confident, empathetic, and caring young minds. Thanks to our educational bilingual setting, we make learning fun! In our French-English bilingual daycare and preschool, well-being, happiness, academic development, and language acquisition are all at the foundation of our learning model.
