Where we started
La Jolie Ronde was founded in 1983 by Colette Leclerq-Hallam - Chevalier dans L'Ordre des Palmes Academiques. Colette is a French native and moved to England in 1974 where she married an Englishman and had 2 children.
The language at home was English and Colette soon realised that her children were reluctant to speak French as doing so felt 'different' to their friends, so she devised some French fun activities, stories & songs to do with them. Colette continued to develop her methodology and as word got around that learning French was fun, she was approached by many parents and local schools and so began La Jolie Ronde.
