Petits Chanteurs French & music classes are led by Anna Park, Elise Lines and Sarah White.
Anna is a fully qualified teacher with 16 years experience of leading music & dance sessions in Nursery & Special Needs settings. She plays the guitar & piano & ran the lunchtime Music Club sessions at Beech Hyde Nursery from 2008 till 2010.
She has lived in Wheathampstead since 1997 and has two daughters aged 10 and 6 years. She strongly believes that introducing new languages (including music) to young children is particularly beneficial to their developing minds & gives them the building blocks for skilful communication in later life.
(She also calls successful ceilidhs & barn dances including the Wheathampstead Village Day Barn Dance – see www.hedgerowtipple.com )

Petits Chanteurs are very excited to welcome Elise on board – as a natural French speaker she gives the children an even greater opportunity to be immersed in the language and develop a truly authentic French accent!
Elise comes from the Loire valley region in the West of France and moved to Wheathampstead in 2006. Having 2 boys aged 5 and 2, she can see first hand how young children enjoy learning a foreign language and how complete immersion is the best approach in order to make the quickest progress. A bientôt.
Sarah is a fluent French speaker who led the Wheathampstead Rainbows pack for two years. She has lived in Wheathampstead since 2000 and has two girls aged 10 and 8 years. She loves sharing her love of the French language with young children & has seen for herself how introducing the language at an early age gives them a huge headstart & greater fluency. She is a true francophile and loves holidaying in France (of course) & sampling the local delicacies!
Biscuit is our Petits Chanteurs Mascot.
He speaks fluent French and loves to share music and stories with the Petits Chanteurs children. He looks forward to every session and loves teaching his favourite French songs!
Chantal is our friendly Shop & Cafe Owner.
Each week she opens up a different shop/cafe with plenty of surprises. The children really enjoy visiting Chantal with their Euros & buying items from her shop practising their new French conversation skills.
