About us


Les Petits Choux is run by a local mum from Southfields and the classes are taught by Victoria an enthusiastic and experienced French teacher.
We are both passionate about French.


As a francophone mum of two young children, who follow the English curriculum, I became aware that my children needed more exposure to the French language.
A teacher myself, I wanted to offer my children and other bilingual families a French environment where children could progress and consolidate their French language skills.
I trained as an Early Years Practitioner in Switzerland. In 2000 I moved to London and completed an 'Honours Degree in Childhood Education' at 'London Metropolitan University'. I then taught for 6 years at 'Le Herisson School', a French bilingual school in London.
I completed a PGCE (Post Graduate Course in Education) at Roehampton University and obtained my QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in 2007.
Since September 2008 I have been a part-time teacher at Streatham & Clapham High School, where I teach French from Nursery to year 6.



Les Petits Choux

What does it mean?

As well as meaning "little cabbages" and being a type of pastry, it is a term of endearment for people you like very much!

We thought it would be perfect for the little 'choux' who come to our classes!
