La Petite Colline is founded by a Swiss couple. After moving from Switzerland to Brooklyn, they wished to create a school that enhances children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn, while respecting each child’s unique path of learning. They strived to establish a school in which the magical time of being a child is cherished and explored, but also allows children to have a place where their feelings and opinions are valued.

Growing up in Switzerland, they each had a love and appreciation of nature and that is where the name “La Petite Colline” comes from — “The Little Hill” is an homage to their homeland!
