Notre Histoire - Our Story

123 Petits Pas was founded in January 2018 by a local French immersion teacher, Mme Amy, who saw the need for support for parents hoping to raise bilingual children. Her desire to raise her own son bilingually sparked the idea of teaching parents and young children at the same time in order to ensure that all children could have the opportunity to experience French as soon as possible! The demand for 123 Petits Pas Parent & Child French programming continues to grow, as does the 123 Petits Pas team. 

Although 123 Petits Pas began as an in-person program in Ottawa, Ontario, as word spread, parents from all over Canada began emailing asking us for support in raising bilingual children. In order to help as many families as possible, 123 Petits Pas began holding online classes. We now offer an online course for Parents & 0-4 year olds as well as live online classes for parents and 0-6 year olds.

Please note that the pandemic has caused us to only offer online classes for the time being. Madame Amy is the sole educator during this time. We will be sure to update our mailing list as soon as in-person options become available.
