Who are we ?

learning and growing together

Les Petits Bellots is an independent bilingual mini-crèche who offers a perfect solution for parents who do not want to commit to long term nursery care and need some time for themselves.  Our mini-crèche is located in Primrose Hill. We welcome your children from the age of 6 months old up to 4 years old.

Our aim is to nurture happy, confident children who take an interest in their surroundings and interact positively with others. This is achieved through free play and structural activities. We want to foster independence and give children an opportunity to learn another language at a very young age where they are the most receptive.

Les Petits Bellots mini-crèche consists of an experienced, qualified and dedicated team of people, both English and French who work together with complementary skills to ensure the intellectual, physical, emotional and social development of children. Each member of staff is fully aware that the safety and welfare of the child are paramount.

The principal, mum of two young children is a qualified Early Years Educator, a Registered Childminder with Ofsted, a qualified Freestyle Dance Teacher and has more than 4 years experience in childcare.

English recommandation :

Lisa W : Mom of a boy

“My children loved their time at Les Petits Bellots – Tessia is a natural and very professional. I first met Tessia when my twins were just 1 years old. When she opened Les Petits Bellots it was a perfect solution. She engages with the children so well and is very understanding of their different personalities. Our family isn’t french speaking at home but having lived in France it was important for me to expose my children to the language. And thanks to Tessia, my twins are now at a bilingual nursery. “

Tillie S : Mom of a gril

“Tessia and her team are lovely and it’s a great way for my daughter to have some exposure to French after moving back to London from Paris. “

Pietro L : Dad of a girl & boy

“My twins began attending Les Petits Bellot when they were 2.5 years old and were instantly very comfortable with Tessia.
Tessia provided a very safe and professional environment for our children who loved the variety provided.
The children stayed with Tessia until they began full-time nursery. We are not from a French background and were delighted our children could experience another language so early.
Overall, Tessia is very trustworthy and has a natural gift for her job. “

Thomas H : Dad of a boy

“Tessia has created such a warm and nurturing environment. She went the extra mile to ensure that our son settled in and it was greatly appreciated! We highly recommend Les Petits Bellots. “

French recommandation :

Diane C : Mom of a girl

” Je recommande vivement les Petits Bellots à toutes les mamans qui souhaitent laisser leur(s) enfant(s) quelques heures par semaine à une personne de confiance. Tessia est une personne extra ! Chaleureuse, très investie, toujours pleine d’entrain et débordante d’idées pour divertir nos petits.
Nous ne nous étions jamais quittées avec ma fille alors âgée de 7 mois. La première séparation n’a pas été simple, la seconde non plus… Avec beaucoup de douceur et de professionnalisme, Tessia a parfaitement su analyser la situation et apporter les bonnes solutions. Ma fille se réjouissait par la suite à l’idée d’aller aux Petits Bellots, où elle a rencontré par ailleurs ses meilleures amies.
Nous avons dû malheureusement déménager et j’espère de tout cœur retrouver une structure aussi accueillante et rassurante dans notre nouvelle ville.
Un immense merci encore aux Petits Bellots et à Tessia pour ces tous premiers moments en crèche. Ce fut une merveilleuse expérience ! “
