123 Petits Pas Educator Enrichment Course

Watch this video to learn all about 123 Petits Pas’s new enrichment course for educators!

This course has been made with busy educator lifestyles in mind. You follow the modules, step-by-step, and will leave with a full French teaching toolbox, equipped and ready to engage students at a moment’s notice!

ALL content can be used with in-person or online teaching!

Before taking this course I was unsure of how to introduce French and so I avoided doing it. Now I feel more comfortable and confident to sing & teach French throughout my lessons. I’m really excited to use the resources provided, I think they’re great tools for students and educators. This is a great program and I love that there is an opportunity for a certificate that can be added to our resumes, portfolios, and CPLs.

La formation pour éducateurs est une mine d’or! Elle vous offrira de nombreuses ressources et des exemples de leçons très dynamiques. Excellent pour se mettre en confiance avant la rentrée des classes. Je la recommande chaleureusement aux personnes ayant déjà de l’expérience en enseignement (comme moi) ou aux « débutants » 😃👌

Merci Madame Amy for creating the Virtual French Educator’s Course through 123 Petits Pas. As a Children’s Librarian, I am always curious for new ways to make French learning fun and effective for my young participants in Bilingual Storytime. I have learned new songs, activities, and techniques to use while delivering my French programs to engage young learners. Amy is a great teacher for both children and adults and shares her enthusiasm through this virtual program. Merci mille fois!

We are so excited to help support and increase Canada’s bilingualism through this certification course.

Your one-time purchase allows you unlimited access for as long as you need it!

This entire course is full of activities that can be used for both in-person and online teaching. There is also a module specific to providing tips, tricks, and tools for online education.

What level of French teaching is this geared towards?

Whether you’re teaching full French, French immersion, core French, or simple French circle times, all levels will benefit from these activities and teaching strategies!

Does this course certify me to be a French teacher?

This enrichment course is a great addition to an ECE, homeschooling parent, childcare provider, or primary teacher’s portfolio or resume, but it does not replace the necessary education required to become a professional educator. 
123 Petits Pas Inc. will not be held responsible for ensuring that registrants of this course have the required background, experience, or certifications for their profession, as anyone with an interest is permitted to register for this course.

Do I have to be bilingual to take this course?

No. The explanations (the WHY and the HOW) are in English in order to allow even beginner French learners to benefit from this course. All content however (the WHAT, ex: the songs, the activities, the downloads) is in French as this course is geared toward those teaching French to children. 
If you have zero French knowledge, we highly recommend taking our beginner French course alongside this certification course to get you ready for French teaching. Educator Enrichment Course registrants receive a 50% discount on our pre-recorded course for parents and children. E-mail us for details: [email protected] 

How long does this course take to complete?

This course can be completed at your own pace. There is no “due date” for completion, and you can repeat it as many times as you like. You could choose to complete its entirety within a few weeks, or you could take your time by gradually implementing each module into your teaching, and complete it over several months. 

In terms of commitment time, this course has been made with busy educators in mind. The modules are activity & resource-based, making every minute worth your time. They are kept short and sweet (approximately 20-35minutes in length), but will require repeat viewings in order to learn the songs, games, and activities. Despite the fact that the modules are short and sweet, the content learned in this course will provide you with infinite hours of teaching content that can be used throughout the remainder of your career. 

How am I permitted to use the course content?

Registrants are permitted to use the course content with their students / children in their care (ex: teachers, ECEs, childcare providers, etc.). Registrants are not permitted to share the content with those who are not registered to the program. The content of this course may not be modified, copied, reproduced, re-published, uploaded, posted, transmitted or distributed in any way and may not be used for any profit-making activities or any commercial gain.
