Focus on children's education

Kindergarten and Primary school are fundamental in children’s social, educational and future professional lives, as well ad their personal growth. With this in mind, CIPEC teachers spend each day focusing on a common goal: to develop each pupil’s potential by giving them the tools to succeed.

Our teaching methods are adapted to every child’s unique personality, interests and rhythm.

CIPEC adheres to four main values in children’s education:

To educate children in the heart of nature

By teaching nature-based activities in a forest setting to encourage environmental awareness.

To provide superior teaching

In small classes (maximum 20 pupils per grade) by an international teaching staff.

To focus on English - French bilingualism and multicultural diversity

Through continuous multilingual interactions all day.

To prioritize the personal development of each pupil

In a secure place that is dedicated to children and activities that will help them grow and thrive mentally and physically.

A stimulating environment in the middle of nature

CIPEC is set in the heart of the Provençal countryside on the outskirts of Aix-en-Provence. The Domaine de Fontvieille welcomes the children to its rustic bastide and sprawling campus tucked away in the middle a pine and oak forest.

Spanning over 2 hectares of land, children are stimulated by building cabins in the woods, playing many sports, and participating in outdoor activities.
