Hello et bienvenue à KidooLand! 

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!

Antonia Beauvoisin-Brown,

Directrice & Fondatrice de KidooLand

Originaire d'Angleterre, j'ai enseigné l’anglais dans 2 collèges français avant de m'installer définitivement dans le sud de la France en 2004. Aujourd'hui, j'élève mes 2 enfants de façon bilingue ce qui me permet de mettre mes études en langues en pratique au quotidien ! Avec 10 ans de gestion de projet à mon actif et l'expérience de directrice opérationnelle au sein d'une entreprise multinationale, je m’occupe principalement de la gestion globale des activités proposées.

  • Licence d'Arts (avec mention) en Langues Appliquées Français et Russe à l'Université de Brighton, Sussex.

  • Titulaire du Diplôme International Cert (ES) TESOL d’enseignement de l’anglais langue étrangère.

L'équipe de KidooLand est choisi personnellement par Antonia Beauvoisin-Brown, avec l'aide et le soutien de l'équipe existante. Nous voudrions créer un environnement sûr et accueillant pour vos enfants et afin de réaliser ceci nous avons besoin d'une équipe qui partage entièrement nos valeurs. Notre personnel a obtenu des diplômes différents (CELTA, TEFL, des formations montessori, des maitrises en pédagogie...) mais nous avons tous été contrôlés et nos cahiers judiciaires vérifiés.

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.

 

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.
