Toddlers will laugh, play, explore, and stay active all summer long during week-long day camps. Each day includes language lessons plus a variety of activities including cooking, art, music, yoga and more.

Open to all levels of French including native French-speaking toddlers. Whether your child is brand new to French or already proficient, these day camps will help them learn and improve their French while having fun and making new friends.

Children will be in small socially-distanced groups that meet in beautiful and spacious classrooms. Staggered drop-off and pick-up times are in place in order to reduce crowding. Additionally, FIAF strictly follows guidelines recommended by the CDC and public health authorities regarding COVID-19. All people over the age of 2 are required to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing at all times. Health checks will be administered upon entering FIAF and a more frequent building-wide cleaning schedule has been implemented.

The FIAF Advantage
– An authentic French-language immersive approach that will benefit all children whether they are new to French or already fluent.
– Small groups
– New exciting themes each week

Prerequisites: Camps are open both to toddlers new to French as well as those who are already familiar with the language. Children must be at least 3 years old when the camp starts. They should be toilet-trained and accustomed to separation.

Please provide your child with 2 nut-free snacks and a lunch. For children ages 3-4, please provide a blanket and doudou (comfort item such as a stuffed animal) for nap time.
