The French Nursery School – Les Chatons – was set up in 1996. Marie-Laurence Edmonstone was inspired by toddlers in her family learning to speak in a number of languages.  it was as natural for them to hop from one language to the other. It was as easy as learning one language at a time.


Marie-Laurence applied this concept to Les Chatons. She set up nursery schools in which children can learn two languages together. With over twenty years of experience, our mission is to provide a joyful and thriving environment for pupils to develop self-esteem and confidence.

We see education as a partnership between teachers, children and parents. Parents and carers may accompany their little ones in school for the duration of the child’s settling in period.

Our firm belief is that every child should have every opportunity to develop their talents to the full. We have an unrelenting focus on raising standards in all aspect of the school life. At Les Chatons, children understand that they have a voice which is heard and valued.
