A message from our founder:
“I tremendously enjoyed working for the benefit of young children by creating and spending 10 years at the helm of the leading group of corporate child care facilities in France. Looking after children opened my eyes to how gratifying and hopeful working could be.
In 2016, I found myself having to find an alternative education solution for my four-year-old son, I decided to build on my professional experience and created a first school in Boulogne-Billancourt: CubeSchool opened on the 3rd of September 2018. In May 2017, a second school joined our group: The Bilingual Montessori School of Rueil-Malmaison.
Today, many parents are looking for alternative education options to foster the growth and development of their children’s potential.
Our first two schools are bilingual Montessori schools!”
Tristan Micol, President of FrancEcole
Open up to tomorrow’s world.
Any education project is linked to a vision of society and mankind. Our world is in constant evolution, driven by important technological advances that generate deep changes in our work, our society, and our culture. Therefore, personal development is becoming essential.
The teaching curriculum of our schools is helping children becoming the independent adults of tomorrow, aware of their needs but also those of others, open to diversity, adaptable, and able to express and develop their own talents and interests. In our schools, they will develop know-how, good manners, and soft skills.
“Let’s not raise our children for today’s world as the world will have changed by the time they are adults. Therefore we must in priority help children foster their faculties of creation and adapatation.”

Our pedagogical beliefs
- Our schools are places designed for the transmission of know-how (the fundamentals: reading, writing, thinking, and expressing yourself) and soft skills (self-discipline, care, and empathy).
- Our pedagogical project promotes, above all, the autonomy and the development of each child: we want children to be happy to come to school because they feel personally supported in a caring and benevolent environment.
- Our approach is helping children grow their confidence by becoming aware of their abilities and qualities.
- The child learns better in a concrete context, with meaningful implications, and when he or she is involved.
This is the reason why the educator prepares an environment in which children can select their activities while being constantly supported.
- The small scale of our schools and classes make them an ideal environment for children to develop their social skills.
- Our approach is fostering in children a taste for efforts and discoveries, pleasure in learning, care and concentration.
Our teams of childhood specialists and teaching professionnals
FrancEcole provides the human and material resources to ensure our pupils and their families receive the best possible service and support. Three internal committees are working to make sure each child is well and developing at his or her own pace, by placing the child at the centre of all our decisions:
This committee consists of three teaching professionals who define our teaching project and adapt it each year, and support our school principals in their daily activities.
Represented by a doctor practising at Hôpital Necker (France's main children hospital), this committee looks after the physical and mental health of the children by defining the health protocols in place in our schools.
The committee imagines fun and innovating activities to pique the curiosity of children.
“Through my books for children and their parents, I wish to pass on my passion for the Montessori approach. My goal is to provide practical tips to help and support children respectfully, at this time of their life that is the foundation of the construction of their personality. It is also what is driving me to invest myself in the CubeSchool project that is offering a solid Montessori offer associated to Labs that allow children to apply the teachings in real-life experiments, this association is the innovation making the school unique! “
