What we're about

Welcome to the East Bay Francophone Kids group! This is a group dedicated to helping our kids speak French in the Bay Area, whether they're native francophones or French learners. My son is 2 and a half, and I worry that all the French he hears is basically just me talking to him. Most children who grow up speaking French quickly forget their language as they are surrounded by English, and naturally want to speak English with their friends.

What better motivation to speak French than having French-speaking playmates? Our group will organize playdates for children and their parents to meet in the East Bay and beyond. There is no age restriction, but this is mostly a group for young kids from 1 to 5 or a little older. We will typically meet at public parks or similar locations where children can play, while parents get to know fellow francophones or French enthusiasts who want their kids to learn French. Don't hesitate to join and post in the forums if you have any questions or wishes.
Bienvenue dans le groupe "East Bay" pour les enfants francophones! Pour les expatriés ou les amateurs de français, l'un des plus gros défis est de rencontrer d'autres enfants parlant français, pour aider nos enfants à préserver leur langue maternelle ou apprendre le français.

La meilleure façon de les aider est d'avoir des amis pour jouer "en français" de temps en temps. Nous organisons des rencontres avec parents et jeunes enfants dans les parcs ou autres endroits publics à définir, en fonction des souhaits de nos membres. Il n'y a pas de limite d'âge, mais c'est principalement un groupe pour jeunes enfants de 1 à 5 ans. N'hésitez pas à nous rejoindre ou à nous contacter, nous organiserons des rencontres dès que nous serons suffisamment nombreux.
