About Ecole du Soleil

Ecole du Soleil

Fun and smart! The perfect vacation for your kids! *Please note: this year’s schedules and themes will be shared in March 2024. 

Ecole du Soleil runs five weeks, from Monday, June 17–Friday, July 19 on our Los Feliz campus. La Petite Ecole du Soleil is for campers entering preschool and pre-kindergarten in fall. La Grande Ecole du Soleil is for campers entering kindergarten-5th grade in the fall. L’Ecole du Soleil offers a bustling daily schedule and a watchful counseling staff.

Our objective is to introduce children to the French language and culture at an early age while they still have a linguistic openness to easily learn a second language. Their adaptability, their lack of inhibition, and, above all, their ability to reproduce any sound accurately will help them learn a second language with great ease. We provide a unique learning context in which your children will learn at their own pace in a fun, genuine, French summer camp environment.

French classes are taught by a group of highly-experienced teachers. Previous exposure to French is not required. Ecole du Soleil is an extension program of the International School of Los Angeles (LILA).

The Los Feliz Campus is a licensed daycare center by the State of California.

A Day at Camp: Preschool & Pre-K Campers

La Petite Ecole du Soleil will be open to campers entering preschool and pre-kindergarten in the Fall while La Grande Ecole du Soleil will welcome K-5th grades. The children must be potty trained and have prior experience in a daycare environment.

The goal of Petite Ecole du Soleil is to introduce the French language through day-to-day activities: greetings, colors, fruits, and days of the week, to name a few. Mornings will focus on the acquisition of the French language. The afternoons will consist of various fun activities including games, arts, crafts, sports, singing, and reading. The program will also help young campers gain social skills.

This program also focuses on social-emotional learning and helps children gain social skills through everyday interactions. Each week children will be introduced to a new theme. The French teacher will plan sessions and activities accordingly and let children explore & learn about the theme throughout the week.

K-5th grade Campers
