Bonjour et Bienvenue!


We are a Small French Daycare in Los Angeles, located in the Sherman Oaks area (close to Ventura Blvd & Woodman Blvd).  A small group of children gives us the opportunity to give maximum attention to each child. We stream to provide the best care for children through our daily activities which include: Arts & Crafts, Story time, French Circle, of course Play Time & more, a weekly Dance and Nature & Animal discovery class, and by providing all natural food. Petit Calinou is a French Immersion Daycare, meaning that all children will be spoken to in French and for those that don't yet understand there will be translation in English. However, your child will understand and start to speak French very soon!

Please feel free to read about our activities, nutrition and more on our website and contact us if you have any questions.


The first few years of a child's life is an important time for them to learn and develop.  Early experiences will affect the way a child learns, behaves and thinks. We would like to make the best of it by making learning fun, develop their curiosity and exposing them to activities that will stimulate their minds, awaken their imagination & creativity to help them become bright little persons. Of course learning (or practicing) French is an important part of Petit Calinou, an immersion program allows children to learn the language naturally and at their own pace.

Petit Calinou was created with the wish to be a place where children feel cozy, comfortable, respected and cared for.  Each child has their own pace and personality, we wish to help them bring out the best in themselves.

                                                                 A little about myself

I have lived most of my life in France and have done most of my education in French.  I always loved taking care of children, throughout my years of experience with children as a babysitter, a nanny, a fille au pair, a auntie and a child care assistant in a daycare for 5 years. I have learn how to interact with children and build a "Friendship". I hope to have a positive influence on your child's life and become someone they trust.  I am excited to teach my native language, French, to all the children and see them progress. Seeing children succeed and learning warms my heart every time.

Merci for reading et a bientot!
