Welcome to Petit Paris !
At Petit Paris, we provide a rigorous academic bilingual French/English program adhering to the Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards based on current thinking and research on child development and different methods of learning. Our mission is to provide a warm, nurturing environment for our students.
We welcome children from all cultures and background and always value their identity and heritage.
As a bilingual French/English teacher, I will motivate and guide your children in becoming independent, confident, caring, in a bilingual setting.
Our curriculum focuses in depth on bilingualism and the development of a second language. Our vocabulary-rich curriculum helps our children develop vocabulary in a stress-free environment. While building a second language our children are eager to communicate and apply what they have learned in class into their everyday lives and routine.
At Petit Paris, we make learning FUN! Our children’s well-being, happiness, academic and language development are at the foundation of our learning model.
A little bit about the teacher... Anna Skop
I grew up in a dual language environment being raised in France by my Polish Artist parents. Very soon, the benefits of my bilinguism allowed me to quicly learn other languages such as English, Chinese, and Russian .
I graduaded with my Bachelors in Foreign appplied Languages in Chinese and English, with my first Masters in Teaching French as a foreign language and my second Masters in teaching Chinese as a second language. I accumulated various teaching experiences with different age grades in different countries : I was a private bilingual child care giver in China and Russia, a High School and Preschool teacher, and private French tutor for children aged 3 to 12 in the United States as well.
After experiencing teaching all age grades, I realized that early childhood education is what interests and amazes me the most ! Witnessing not only how effortlessly preschoolers aquires a second language but also how it helps them structure their mind in multitude of subject areas : math, social, readiness... is a blessing !
Whether I am in Russia, China or Mount Pleasant, I bring my French language and culture everywhere I go !
I am commited to help children from Western Pennsylvania acquire a second language to give them a head start in all of their academic pursuit !
I am pediatric CPR/AED/First aid certified.
