What’s it really like to grow up in Paris? How do children aged 6-12 spend their days? What do they do for fun? What do they eat? What does a typical elementary school day involve? This culturally immersive program will take your kids beyond what a tourist sees, for a journey through an authentic day in Paris. Your program host is a mother and teacher from Paris who will engage your child through game and song. Along the way, we’ll learn new French words and concepts that Parisian kids use every day. In spite of all the fascinating cultural differences (kids eat camembert cheese for lunch?!), by sharing our own experiences we’ll see how young peoples’ lives are more connected than not.

Your kids will:

  • Learn new French words used in playground games
  • Hear a few classic French children’s songs
  • Follow a typical school day in Paris 
  • Practice a short dicté – a daily writing exercise for all French students
  • See the foods regularly served at cantine (school lunch) and gouter (after school snack) 
  • Discuss the differences and similarities between their lives and those of French children

To continue the learning together, parents will receive additional resources like French recipes to try at home, a list of useful French phrases, as well as a children’s guide to the Louvre Museum.

Jessica Pinnock Garrett fell in love with Art History at age 18 and never looked back. After receiving her teaching certificate, with degrees in Art History and Italian Studies, she earned her MA in Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University, with an emphasis in architecture. She then used her degrees to originate an Advanced Placement Art History Program in Salt Lake City, Utah. The highlight of her program was taking high school students on tours to San Francisco and to New York City, sponsored by the Renaissance Society of America. Whether onsite or online, the classroom is her favorite place to be, and discussing art and history with enthusiasts of all ages has become her true passion. Jessica now lives in Paris with her husband and two young boys.
