Hello, je m'appelle Antonia Beauvoisin-Brown et je suis la fondatrice et directrice de KidooLand, surnommé

"la petite école anglaise" par nos clients. Contrairement aux écoles traditionnelles, à KidooLand nous apprenons

l'anglais à vos enfants  de 0-16 ans et même les adultes tout en s'amusant dans un atmosphère positif, innovatif et créatif.

Pour ma part, je suis diplômée (Bac+4)  d’une licence en "Applied Linguistics + LV2 et LV3" . La partie fondamentale de cette licence était l’acquisition et l'apprentissage des langes en V.O. et en 2eme et 3eme lange.

J'adore la formation en continue c'est pour ceci depuis mon arrivée en France j'ai fait une diplôme dans le Psychologie de l’Enfant et en Montessori. Je suis moi-même maman d’enfants bilingues qui apprenent leurs 3eme langues (maintenant des ados!) et je jongle au quotidien entre le français et l’anglais; un bilinguisme que j'encourage au quotidien auprès de nos élèves. 

J'ai créé KidooLand en 2007 et je suis personnellement très fière de la qualité de notre programme, qui évolue tous les temps, ainsi que de notre équipe d'enseignants dynamiques.

 

Au cours des 12 dernières années, plus de 5 000 familles nous ont donné leur confiance soit pour un coup de pouce rapide, soit sur une période plus longue pour devenir bilingue.

 

Nous sommes très fiers de pouvoir vous accueillir avec vos bébés lors de nos groupes Mamans-Bébés les lundis et vendredis et puis de vous proposer tout un parcours de cours et d'activités afin d'accompagner votre enfant pendant toute son enfance. L'équipe de KidooLand lui apprendra non seulement d'être a l'aise en anglais, mais aussi d'être à l'aise dans sa peau. Nos cours, ateliers et activités sont conçus pour stimuler les enfants, de les aider à avoir confiance en eux-même, d'être indépendant, curieux, responsable et de les inciter à trouver leur place dans le monde.

 

Pour assurer l’efficacité de nos programmes, nous limitons nos cours et ateliers à de petits groupes de 6 à 12 enfants (selon l'âge et le niveau) afin que chacun puisse bénéficier de l’attention nécessaire. Nous constatons d’excellents résultats et retours des familles de nos élèves. 

 

L'équipe de KidooLand reste à votre entière disposition pour toute question ou complément d'information donc n'hésitez pas à nous contacter, à nous visiter, à nous poser vos questions. Nous serons toujours ravis d’y répondre et de vous orienter vers le programme le plus adapté à vos besoins.

See you soon!

"My name is Anna, I’m Swedish and I moved to France in 2012. I have a master’s degree in Biology and a French diploma “CAP petite enfance”. I love what I do, and I find working with children is truly rewarding when I manage to get them enthusiastic and absorbed by an activity. In particular when I know that they will learn loads of English at the same time."

Marlies

Leader (English is Fun, Chess instruction, holidays)

"I am a qualified chess teacher from the Netherlands. I started to play chess when I was 8 years old and have never stopped since. During my law studies, I wanted to use my chess experiences to teach children and adults to improve and so I became a chess teacher in my free time. When I arrived in France in 2011 I was thrilled to be able to continue offering chess classes in parallel to my "proper" job!"

Beth

Leader (English is Fun , Stages Vacances)

 I moved to France from England in 2018 with my husband, two teenage children and dog. Having worked in the Optical health industry for over 20 years I took this opportunity to do something different. As my passion has always been in education I chose teaching. I recently finished a Natural Sciences Degree just for fun and in 2019 I completed my TEFL training. I believe education should be fun whenever possible, encouraging the children to discover and learn things in a safe, fun and interactive environment making Kidooland the perfect place for me to work.

William

Leader (English is Fun & Stages Vacances)

I moved to France in 2012, when I began looking after children in the evenings and teaching them English.

 

Six years later, after deciding there was no other job I'd be happier doing, I moved to Paris to train with the Paris institute of childcare training to gain my CAP "Accompagnant Educatif Petite Enfance" diploma, whilst also working as an intern in a bilingual primary school. I love getting to know all the children I have the privilige of working with, and making sure that their English learning experience is as natural and enjoyable as possible is my priority.

Would you like to join the team?

We are really proud of our team at KidooLand!  Working at KidooLand is a varied, energetic and lively role! With each inscription, we have 2 customers; the parent and the child. Our work is therefore two-fold, a careful balance between having fun and laughter so the child enjoys themself and of course the all important learning. DETAILS HERE

 

Our team all lead sessions in their native tongue and come from Anglophone countires such as England, Ireland, America and Australia! They have diplomas that range from Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL, CELTA) to qualifications for Teaching theatre, dance or music. Some of our leaders also hold certificates in Child Pyschology and Speech Therapy and many of us continue in our own time to further our academic knowledge with courses such as Art Therapy, Montessori etc.

 

Successful team members at KidooLand would be described as "a people person" , with a cheery disposition, firm but fair, ponctual and organised.  They have to be autonomous yet team players, structured yet flexible.

While we are not actively recruiting at the moment, sometimes team members sadly (for us!) leave to go back to their home country. If you think you have what it takes, please send us your CV and photo, along with a covering letter and your contact details. Then, if an opportunity comes up we can quickly contact you.
