My name is Marie and I will be teaching French to your child at the Acorns Day Nursery. I am French native and I have been in the UK for 22 years...in France, I worked with children in holiday camps and PGL type centres, I was also a nanny to 3 young children for several years before I decided to try my chance in the UK. Here, I have worked in hotels, then joined the police for 8 years. When I had my children, I studied to become a teaching assistant, I worked in various schools before teaching French in Primary schools. I joined La Jolie Ronde over 3 years ago and I love it!
At La Jolie Ronde we aim to make our classes an enjoyable experience for your child, to motivate him/her to learn French and to inspire enthusiasm for the language. Your child will learn French following the tried and tested La Jolie Ronde method. This is a well structured and proven approach which is well known in schools throughout the country. Ideally your child should follow the La Jolie Ronde method through to 11 years old.
La Jolie Ronde celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2013 and specialises in teaching French and Spanish to children aged 0 to 11 years old. There are hundreds of centres across the UK and teachers ready to share their enthusiasm for languages with the children. With its range of programmes developed and adapted to suit different age groups and abilities.
Every lesson, we remember how to count in French, greet each other and say our name and also say how we feel.
Every week, we also have our “bain français” (a few minutes), allowing us to remember and practice already known vocabulary and sing known songs or recite known rhymes or action chants before we start learning new things.
Our friends Matou le chat and Tounette la souris, a French cat and a French mouse, my puppets, come and help us learn and have fun!
