Lou Pichoun is a French Preschool that was created in 1997 in Stanley, Hong Kong by a French woman named Suzanne Barroero. The Preschool was then taken over, four years later by Nicole and Thomas Tam. Our Preschool curriculum thoroughly follows the French National Education Official Bulletin and relevant guidelines in terms of Preschool programs and objectives. Lou Pichoun welcomes children from the Très Petite Section (2-3 years old) to the Grande Section (5-6 years old).
Lou Pichoun extended in Happy Valley in September 2011 and opened its third campus in Tseung Kwan O in January 2019, opposite to the French International School. Classes are all led in French during the morning sessions (English will also be available in Tseung Kwan O campus). In Stanley and Tseung Kwan O campus, students can choose from French, English or Mandarin in the afternoon. As for Happy Valley, the afternoon sessions are in English.
Although Lou Pichoun is a private school and does not depend on the French Education bureau, we make a point to refer to the French National Education Official Bulletin and follow their guidelines in terms of programs and objectives. The teamwork our teachers have adopted also contributes to the rich content of the various activities offered at Lou Pichoun, which, besides the academic goals for each age, always put an emphasis on the development of artistic skills.
Apart from Preschool programs, Lou Pichoun offers playgroups for 15 to 24 months in French, English or Mandarin. Our wide range of fun and interactive playgroup activities is designed to improve your child's emotional, cognitive, physical development and social skills - a great opportunity for children to interact with peers and get ready for preschool.
