Welcome to Mini French
1. Stimulate Your Little One's Brain!

The more we stimulate our childrens' brains with activities like singing, problem solving and interaction the more neural pathways they will build & improve their creativity.

2. Improve Your Own French!

Not many kids classes enable you to learn as well! Both in class and at home, using your class pack, you will learn with your child. If you are bilingual we can ensure you get to share your native language with your child.

3. Have Lots & Lots of Fun!

For far too long language tuition has been uninspiring. We have changed that! Welcoming, light-hearted and child-centred you will see your child smile and laugh and learn!

Success Stories

We've been going to Mini French since my son was 2 months old - he absolutely loves it and is a definite highlight to the week. The songs are great and a mixture of familiar ones both to me (non-French speaking) and my partner (bilingual) as well as new ones. The CDs, song book and online resources are also brilliant and allow us to sing the songs at home so that French speaking/singing has become an integral part of our family life.

My 5 year old son has been going to Mini French Academy for 3 terms now and he loves it. Felicity is excellent at keeping the parents informed about what the children have been learning, so that you can practice at home and the topics are appealing to children

All our 3 boys have been going to mini French since they were a few months old - the classes are great - they love Felicity and have learnt so much!! Merci beaucoup:)

Welcome To Mini French!

Language Programmes For Children From Babies To Primary 2.

Established in 2012 in Edinburgh and receiving fantastic feedback, Mini French offers carefully (and lovingly!) developed learning programmes for young children. I have also created a blog where anyone can look at and download resources for learning French at home. Maybe you are a homeschooler or are not in the Edinburgh area? Check it out here.

Supported by my enthusiastic team of French speakers, I run interactive, creative, sing-along and story sessions where tots and parents alike learn French in a fun, nurturing environment. We use LOADS of toys, actions and movement to reinforce learning and stay up to date on the latest language acquisition research!


Our aim is to foster a curiosity in languages and enable learning through music, play and immersion activities. A tried and tested method in keeping with recent studies. When children are engaged - they learn.

All preschool children, from birth, are welcome at the Mini French "Music & Explore" sessions. Even young babies benefit hugely from hearing another language. Following on from that we have the Mini French "Junior Academy" for ages 4 to Primary 2. In this class children learn French through active games, crafts and music in small tutoring groups.

  • Proven brain training for children!
  • Improve your own French along the way
  • Most importantly, have fun and meet new friends!

We have six copyrighted Mini French CD's in our series. They are also available as MP3's for families joining the classes. For a flavour of these songs, as gifts or if you are ot in the Edinburgh area, we have a Best Of Mini French CD and download available for sale.


We are the only childrens language company in the country to have created 7 copyrighted Cds which we use as the bases for our classes. Prior to starting the parent & child class, you will receive a the music (by digital download or Cd) and the accompnaying songbook for the block. This gives you a chance to listen to, and practice, the songs at home or in the car and crucially means you can be involved in your child's learning.

Your existing level of French is no obstacle. We have a HUGE range of quality sensory toys, actions, dancing and games to make the songs even more memorable for you and your child! Join today! We'd be delighted to have you.

Any questions? Simply get in touch.

We look forward to seeing you soon... A bientôt!
