I am very pleased to introduce our school, Les Petits Génies!
It is more than a school, it is a big family, where all the parents, teachers and children share, learn and experience each new day together.
To nurture all our children so that they can enjoy each day and develop a lifelong thirst for knowledge and learning. We understand that every child is unique and must be properly supported to bring out its talent and grow in confidence.
In 2003, The French Ecole Club opened its doors as the first private language center in Lagos to encourage and promote bilingualism in children.
Every modern child should be equipped to live, thrive and compete in the world community.
Our reputation and success has been built purely by word of mouth, largely due to our unique methodology of teaching. We nurture young children to become perfectly bilingual.
LEARNING HOW TO LEARN
Communication & Language
Communication is the foundation of a child’s development, and at Les Petits Génies, we build this foundation with utmost care and precision. Through playful activities such as the morning nametag treasure hunt, we imbue the early lessons of reading and comprehension in a joyous manner.
Personal, Social, Emotional Development
Nurturing the heart and mind goes hand in hand at Les Petits Génies. We foster a culture where every child learns to develop self-confidence and autonomy. The nurturing environment at our school encourages sensitivity and awareness of the needs and feelings of others, cultivating a compassionate and empathetic future generation.
Physical activities are a pivotal part of our curriculum, aiming to inculcate a sense of discipline and the joy of movement from an early age. Our indoor playground, named “Little Gym,” is a haven for little adventurers to explore a range of physical activities. The monthly swimming days and sports festivals are the highlights of our physical development program, promoting agility and coordination while having fun.
Creative Development and Creative Expression
At the heart of our curriculum is the imaginative “Atelier,” where young minds converge to share ideas and create beautiful expressions through various art mediums. This vibrant corner is where children explore the depths of their imagination through painting, drawing, and an array of other artistic endeavors, fostering a nurturing ground for the next generation of artists and thinkers.
Knowledge and Understanding of the world
Our curriculum encourages the little geniuses to develop a profound understanding of the environment, space, and time in relation to their own experiences. Through careful observation, exploration, and hands-on experiments with natural materials, we foster a sense of curiosity and wonder, encouraging them to question and understand the workings of the world around them.
Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
At Les Petits Génies, we introduce the young minds to the fascinating world of numbers through practical experiences. Before moving onto counting, we ensure they understand the core concepts of quantity, relationships between different sizes, and numbers. Utilizing everyday objects for practical applications fosters a deep understanding, setting a solid foundation for their mathematical journey.
Beyond the classrooms, we extend learning to the great outdoors, where children connect with nature and develop a genuine appreciation for their environment. Our outdoor learning experiences are meticulously crafted to be not just an extension but a rich expansion of indoor learnings, offering a wholesome approach to understanding the world from different perspectives.
Children learn how to be in charge of their learning and become independent learners
At Les Petits Génies, our Playgroup forms the first step in our nurturing educational journey, fostering foundational skills in communication and language through playful, interactive activities.
Our Pre-nursery program builds upon the foundations laid in the Playgroup stage, introducing the little learners to more structured activities while preserving the element of play in learning.
At this stage of their learning, children will learn about the importance of being responsible and good students and role models. They will develop strong literacy and maths skills, learn about the world around them and start preparing for a smooth transition in the Nursery 2 class.
Children further consolidate their learning, continue to embrace the varied ways of learning and decide independently which method excite or interest them. They become confident independent learners in charge of their learning.

EXPLORE Les Petits Génies
At Les Petits Génies, every day is a journey of discovery, learning, and fun. We encourage each child to converse, inquire and make decisions during small group activities. We believe each child is gifted and should be nurtured in a conducive environment, a “Happy Place”, to learn and excel.
"Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be" - Rita Pierson
School plays can have a positive impact on a child's language and memory skills. Whether they are learning their lines in a play or remembering where they need to stand on stage, both these skills are important.
It gives children an opportunity to discover and participate in various sporting games, including egg and spoon races, relays, sack races, tug of war, football, mini-golf, athletics and so much more.
