Meet Our Staff
La Souris Verte is a French Immersion Playgroup aimed at parents who want their children to learn or improve their French skills in a creative, safe and friendly environment.
All children are welcome and do not need to speak French to attend one of our programs.
Court Tree Collective and Albee School of dance are located in the heart of Carroll Gardens, two blocks from the F and G Carroll St stop. Facilities in the spaces include a fully functional kitchen (at Court Tree only), and a bathroom with a potty and a step stool to access the sink.
The spaces are 100% childproofing.
Both spaces have strict security including a buzzer and a small gated entry for strollers.
