Meet The Founder
Alexandra, the founder of La Maternelle, has had a passion for teaching since childhood. She had worked for seventeen years as a preschool teacher in France and three years in a private French preschool here in the US.
La Maternelle is a dream come true for Alexandra. As a passionate, dedicated professional, she perfectly exemplifies what it takes to be a preschool educator.
As a mother herself, Alexandra has a kinship with children and is a graduate of the French Ministry of Education. She’s successfully completed 15 ECE units in early childhood education and is CPR and FIRST AID certified.
Alexandra’s teaching philosophies combine educational methods using arts and games based primarily on the French educational system and the Montessori method.
At La Maternelle, it’s our mission to provide exceptional early childhood education in a mixed French and English environment. We strive to lay the groundwork for children to explore their creativity, enhance social skills, and flourish academically.
We like to dream big here. We hope to expand our French immersion preschool. We’d love to have multiple locations around the country.
