CALYPSO M – Toddler classroom

Petits Poussins Dumbo (PPD) is absolutely phenomenal. Our 2-year old has been there for the past year (including the Summer camp), and has enjoyed it tremendously — she goes there cheerfully, and comes back home with new songs and drawings galore.

What do we love about PPD?

  • The quality of the education/ care the kids receive: they have structured days, filled with fun activities (from soccer to music to painting to stickers to reading to outdoor fun), in a planned mix of French and English that is essential to our Franco-American family. The team are so caring and really get along with the kids, they know their preferences and are fully attune to their individual needs. We can really see our child’s development and growth thanks to PPD, let alone her absolute delight in spending time there.
  • The flexibility and ease that the staff and systems bring: when our nanny was sick, we were able to stay an extra day at PPD (on many occasions!); if we want to bring our own food or have PPD meals or vegetarian PPD meals, all of these are available; we see pictures of our child through the Brightwheel app, and communicate as needed with the incredibly accomodating team when diapers are missing or a teddybear has been forgotten (or a parent is running late…)
  • The other kids and parents: there is a strong community spirit, and sometimes listing their friends’ names is the only way to get our child to put their shoes on! There are people from all backgrounds and we are thrilled to be a part of this group, to see the camaraderie and the exchange between the kids as they grow up.
  • Thank you so much PPD!

DANIEL S – Infant classroom

“I could not recommend Petits Poussins Dumbo any more highly!! When my wife and I started looking for daycares for our child, we initially focused on PP due to its location, just around the corner from our apartment. Well, turns out the location is the least of the amazing features this daycare has to offer. Every single person there – from the director Mikael to the teachers in his classroom – is warm, inviting, caring, helpful and attentive. Mikael is extremely easy to talk to, responds quickly to emails and knows every child by name. More on the teachers: we could not be happier with them. It is so clear from our son’s interactions with them that they treat him well, provide tons of affection and are just all-around wonderful people. In addition, they are all well-versed in child development and Oliver has learned and grown a lot just from his time spent there. Oliver is SO HAPPY to be handed off to them in the morning. We think so highly of this daycare, and especially the people there. If it weren’t for our upcoming move to NJ, we wouldn’t think twice about signing him up for future school years”

GALIT S – Toddler classroom

“Petits Poussin is an incredible way to help your baby/toddler/child start their preschool years. The teachers and staff are like family. Your child will feel nurtured as well as stimulated.
For those families who have any worries about allergies THIS IS YOUR SCHOOL. They will do everything to make sure your child is safe and you will have peace of mind.”

“The teachers ensure a balance of music, soccer, language, dance and learning. Even if your family does not speak French your child will learn and it will be fun. My toddler has almost all of his ABC’s before his 2nd birthday. The report cards they hand out give you details about all the skills and milestones your child is achieving. This is so important for this age group to ensure your child is thriving which this school works so diligently on. The Director, Mikael, makes the entire process from application to the start of school a pleasure. We have been extremely happy here, the school has exceeded our expectations.”

ANEESHA M – Preschool classroom

“Our little boy Amaar absolutely loves going to school each day. He’s genuinely excited and has a great connection with his teachers Ms. Martine and Ms. Elna. Every morning they receive him with such happiness and a smile. It’s exactly the type of environment you’d want to leave your child in. We don’t speak French at home but we’re happy to see him singing and counting in French when he comes home. Mikael and Chandrika are very much involved in keeping my wife and me up to date on what’s happening each day. The brightwheel app is amazing. I love getting photos and videos throughout the day and seeing what the kids are all up to. We look forward to enrolling our daughter in about another year when she’s two.”
