The French Preschool

The French preschool is a unique and key learning cycle for your child’s development and academic success.

In a positive and safe environment, children will develop their potential in all areas (motor skills, languages, sensitive intelligence, arts, imaginary, relationship with others) to fully build their personality and embrace their potential. 

Our educational team is only composed of qualified teachers, who are responsive to the needs of children and families.

Your child will benefit from the school’s multicultural and multilingual environment, where tolerance and “living well together” rules predominate.

Classes are taught in French by graduated teachers from the French Ministry of Education, with the help of a Polish-speaking assistant.

Main areas of learning in preschool

  • using the language in all its dimensions
  • acting, expressing oneself and understanding through physical activities
  • acting, expressing oneself and understanding through artistic activities
  • building the first tools for developing the thinking process
  • exploring the world

Learning how to speak and express oneself is an essential condition for the academic success of all pupils. By attending sports and artistic classes, small children can explore the links between acting, feeling, releasing the imagination, finding one’s sensitivity, thinking and language.


We believe that learning languages is essential, both for the academic success and the personal development of the child. Trilingualism (French, English, and Polish) is an integral part of the daily life at the French primary school in Warsaw.

The school offers many language courses and programs for all children’s needs: Polish as a native or foreign language, French as a foreign language for non-French-speaking children, special activities in class and extracurricular activities in English.

Extracurricular activities

The French preschool of the Lycée français de Varsovie offers a wide range of extracurricular activities in the field of creative arts, sports, foreign languages and music.

Activities are organized on three time slots from 2.45 PM to 5.30 PM. A nursery is also available at the school from 7.30 to 8.30 AM in the morning, and from 3.55 to 5.30 PM in the afternoon.

Secularism, citizenship and sustainable development

The teaching staff of the French preschool in Warsaw organizes many school trips and various educational projects in order to help children maintain contact with the Polish language and culture, but also discover French traditions, and make them more aware of the need to protect the environment and respect people from other cultures.

French school education is secular. No religious class is offered at the school and the curriculum focuses on transmitting civic and moral values, while respecting the diversity of religious beliefs.

Time schedule

At the Preschool of the LFV, children start their day at 8.30 AM (or between 7.30 and 8.30 AM if they are attending nursery). Twice a day, they enjoy a recreation time which lasts between 20 to 30 minutes, so they can play and relax. In the middle of the day, they have a one-hour break to eat, rest, and be at the playground.

Classes end at 2.45 PM. After this time, children can take part in extracurricular activities until 5.30 PM.
