Mission Statement:

Ecole Francaise Greater Boston offers educational programing in French to francophone families in the Boston area. We are an academic community committed to promoting respect, curiosity and creativity in all of our students.

Our mission is to open children’s minds to the world around them and build a strong early academic foundation that will seamlessly transition them from our school to the world beyond. Our programs are designed to foster exploration, social-emotional development, and a desire to learn.

Our pedagogical philosophy is guided by empathy and focuses on the holistic development of our children, their families, and staff. We believe that this fosters a whole school culture of positivity and respect.

School History:

ur learning community started as the Francais Langue Maternelle (FLAM) after-school program in 2008, when we realized that francophone children needed a place to learn, practice, and play in French. A group of francophone teachers decided to create a program to give them that opportunity. Shortly after, our program earned a FLAM grant from the French government, enabling us to purchase equipment and train teachers to ensure a quality approach to French education. FLAM serves francophone children in Greater Boston who are enrolled in local public and private schools.

P'tits Bouts began as a playgroup for younger siblings of students enrolled in FLAM to offer fun, engaging programming for preschool-aged children. Because one of the original organizers of the P'tits Bouts playgroup was a teacher, the group soon took on a fun, structured, and educational form and became increasingly popular. After a period of hard work and dedication, a committee of parents and EFGB staff established P'tits Bouts preschool in 2011.
