Preschool, Pre-K & Kindergarten

An Exceptional Early Start

In Maternelle (the French name for Preschool, Pre-K and Kindergarten), we take joy in this incredible responsibility of educating your child. We believe that all children have the ability to be very involved in the learning process when they are supported, encouraged, and appreciated. Our dual-language program fosters children's natural ability to learn new languages while encouraging young minds to explore, discover and create in a truly bilingual and multicultural environment.

At FASP, we have implemented a solid curriculum that allows our students to build strong academic strengths, develop curiosity and a love of learning.

Young children have an amazing capacity to learn, adapt and accept new ideas and perspectives with ease. This makes early childhood the perfect time to learn a second language and gain the lifelong benefits of a bilingual education. A FASP education challenges students to leave behind their comfort zones and ensures they’re well-prepared to travel, to think outside the box, and to make their unique mark on our global society.

At FASP, your child’s world becomes bigger, more interesting, more challenging and more connected than ever before!

“The French American School of Princeton is an impressive school. It gives the children the best of both the French and the American education. Our 2 boys – 9 and 11 years old – have been attending the school since their youngest age and are totally bilingual. Not only they are happy kids and absolutely love their school, but they also benefit from very high educational academic standards, learn strong human values and are self-confident. The educational community is exemplary, enhancing excellence, curiosity, creativity and respect. The kindergarten, elementary and middle schools are all exceptional. We highly trust this school and are so grateful to the way they prepare our children for their future.”
