Ma Petite Ecole was founded to teach French to children and teenagers. Lessons are held on Saturday mornings in two schools in Belsize Park and Maida Vale, in London. Students are placed in different groups based on their ability in French and their age. Students who speak French fluently follow the French National Education programme whilst students who are not fluent learn French as a foreign language.

There is a maximum of 8 students for every teacher.

Ma Petite Ecole holds around 30 classes every Saturday morning, including nursery, primary and secondary levels. Lessons take place in two locations: The Rosary School in Belsize Park (from 9:30 to 11:30) and St Joseph's School in Maida Vale (from 10:00 to 12:00).

The class a new student is put in is determined by teachers to ensure they are at a suitable level.

There are 10 lessons, lasting 2 hours each, per term. The teachers, who are all qualified French speakers, are trained in teaching and according to the program established by Ma Petite Ecole. The teaching methods used are carefully chosen in order to make learning French entertaining and enjoyable for students.
