"If we spoke a different language, we would perceive a somewhat different world." -Ludwig Wittgenstein






La Petite Maternelle Fleur de Lys was founded in 2017 by Genevieve Rheault out of her love for her daughters and teaching.  Knowing that everything her daughters learned would be taught in English (Dance class, soccer training, swimming lesson, Sunday school, etc), she decided to address them in French for the opportunity to also learn a French education. With her years of teaching experience, she decided to build a preschool program based in the environment of her home.


Genevieve has always felt drawn to helping ensure children have the right start in life. She believes that it's of the utmost importance for children to develop a healthy love for learning early on and now that is the mission of her school!

She has gone to great lengths to research best practices for early childhood educators and institutions. She is extremely confident that
La Petite Maternelle Fleur de Lys is the perfect place for your child to begin his or her schooling years. After dedication and careful planning, Genevieve opened the doors of La Petite Maternelle Fleur de Lys for the first time to the public in the fall of 2017.
