LA PETITE ECOLE BANGKOK
La Petite École is a bilingual preschool, with lessons taught in English and French. Established in 2017, it is located in Sathorn, central Bangkok, Thailand. It received approval from the French Ministry of Education in 2019, guaranteeing the quality of the education provided, and is a partner of the AEFE (Agency for French Education Abroad).
When it first opened in September 2017, La Petite Ecole had 12 pupils, but this year, it has over 60 pupils.
It’s part of La Petite Ecole en Asie group, whose first establishment was opened in singapore in 2012, followed by La Petite Crèche in 2015. Two years later, in 2017, the founders took up the dual challenge of launching La Petite Ecole in Bangkok, Thailand, and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, continuing to uphold the vision of small-scale bilingual schools.
La Petite Ecole is continuing on its journey. In February 2021, all La Petite Ecole schools in Asia joined the Odyssey school network, a Paris-based private network specializing in French education abroad. Within the French education abroad network, Odyssey and La Petite Ecole share the same educational values and vision: to provide a high-quality multilingual education, to place the student at the heart of learning and to lead pupils along an academic path of excellence.
