Who we are


Igniting the spark of genius in every child

We Work to Understand Your Kids Needs

Le Petit Poucet is a dynamic French and English Nursery & Kindergarten, conveniently located in the heart of Jumeirah, Dubai. Founded in 2014 with the aim of providing high quality bilingual early education, Le Petit Poucet has not stopped expanding and growing its network of partnerships with local schools. Under the umbrella of the Ministry of Education, for the past 7 years Le Petit Poucet has been the only French Kindergarten in Dubai also accredited by the KHDA for its FS1/Petit Section, FS2/Moyenne Section/KG1 and Year 1/Grand Section/KG2 Bilingual Programmes. It is the only institute of its type in Dubai that has the French and English curriculum at nursery and kindergarten level, ensuring continuity of education and ease for parents.

The early stages of a child’s life are the most critical to their development. These years set the foundations for a bright and happy future, preparing children for the world and all the possibilities that lay at their feet. At Le Petit Poucet we nurture a child’s growth and development from the ages of 3 months to 6 years old, allowing them to flourish as individuals in an environment that stimulates imagination, creativity, motor skills, cognitive skills, emotional, social development, and physical development and most uniquely to us; language skill development.

Daily programmes are filled with a wide range of activities which each target specific developmental areas whilst being fun and engaging for children. They are encouraged to use their imagination, to explore their communication skills and creativity and build confidence. We offer flexible half day and full day options suited to individual needs of parents and children and our highly qualified teachers have a genuine passion for bringing out the best of each child in a lively and fun way.

Our Philosophy

We See Diversity in Our Students as Our Greatest Asset

We believe in the powerful developmental benefits of a bilingual education such as higher IQ, faster brain development, wider vocabulary, improved memory and better problem solving, and for this reason Le Petit Poucet offers high quality early education following the French Curriculum and the British National Curriculum (EYFS). Our bilingual programme gives parents the option for their child to be taught in French or English and gives the chance for children to be introduced to both languages.

At Le Petit Poucet, we see diversity in our students as our greatest asset. Qualified and native French and English speaking teachers are assisted by professional staff to challenge children and prepare them for primary schools at different entry levels (FS1, FS2, KG1, KG2, PS or MS) and different curriculums (International Baccalaureate, French, British Curriculum or American).

In our continuous pursuit to enhance children’s knowledge and interests, we have been promoting the French language and the French culture within our facility and beyond for several years. Our programme, coupled with our fantastic facility and additional services have contributed to our success. Le Petit Poucet is now a highly regarded choice for high quality French and English early years education in Dubai.
