Our nursery programme has been running in Edinburgh and Fife since 2013. We have fantastic partnerships with many wonderful nurseries. We have two types of arrangement:
- Direct bookings with parents, OR,
- Nursery partnerships where the fee is paid via the nurseries activity budget.
Classes are suitable for children aged 6 months to 4. If you would like your child's nursery to run classes or if you manage a nursery then please get in touch!
To get started: book a taster session and then we can manage all bookings directly with parents via our online booking which minimises admin for everyone. We can be entirely flexible to suit your needs and space restrictions.
The sessions are research-based and involve:
- Singing songs from our collection of copyright music tracks
- Interaction with a trained Mini French teacher
- Playing with a huge range of toys
- Learning actions relating to key words
- Enjoying quality French books
- Simple online booking process
- Families receive all the MP3s for the booked term plus accompanying illustrated songbook(s) for home use

Results from the first session
Our methods are based on research, experience & nurture. We respect different learning styles and encourage fun & laughter! This results in happy, thriving children.
Simple, Fast Online Booking
Parents tell us they love the online booking system. We provide a link to the system and parents simply input their child’s details and make payment by card. Re-booking is even faster!
Why nurseries love Mini French:
We have worked in nurseries for many years and know you are very busy. Our online booking system significantly reduces admin for nursery staff and we pride ourselves on our efficient communication.
We will be there, on time when we say we will. Should any unforeseen circumstances arise, we arrange cover for the session. You are kept up-to-date in these circumstances.
Mini French teachers are native or highly proficient French speakers with experience with young children. We have a set of Mini French core values to which all staff members adhere: respect, integrity, passion & positivity.
Teachers are trained in the Mini French programme, are covered by Public Liability Insurance and are PVG certified.
Records of Achievement
Nurseries find it useful to be able to include the feedback provided in the children’s nursery record.
Staff are sensitive to the importance of inclusion within a nursery setting. Classes are mixed age: from 6 months to age 4 so you can include all your children in one session if you choose to. We find it works well.
