“The happiest man in the world is the one who makes the most people happy”
For the well-being of the children, the different actors in the school’s day-to-day operations (staff, parents, external parties) need to get along and work in harmony. The focus is on mutual respect and team spirit.
Married couple Viviane Salin and Vincent Rosa are the happy parents of a nine-year-old and a seven-year-old. After moving to Singapore in 2006, they could not find the right school for their children and decided to open La Petite Ecole in September 2012.
After three successful years, they extended their services to families and their younger children by opening La Petite Creche. A whole new exciting chapter is now being written, with the launch of La Petite Ecole in Bangkok, in September 2017.
Viviane’s unusual curriculum is a testimony of her multiple skills. After graduating from HEC School of Management, she first worked for an event organising agency in Paris, then as an accomplished violinist in Singapore, playing in an opera. She has provided private violin tuitions but also taught students at the German School in Singapore. Furthermore, she has put her knowledge and skills to the service of adolescents with special needs, by encouraging them to express their emotions through music.
Her passion: to educate, pass on knowledge and reveal the potential in each child.
For the past five years, Viviane has first devoted herself to continue improving the school she had dreamed of for her children, before starting to develop and expand La Petite Ecole to new horizons. By doing so, she brings excellent education standards and learning conditions to a larger number of students.
Vincent studied in the same top-ranking school as Viviane did. After graduation, he went on to work at internationally-renowned banks, before joining his spouse to help manage La Petite Ecole, in 2013. He is the co-founder and co-director of the group La Petite Ecole.
Originally from the North of France, I work as a Professeur des écoles (school teacher). I have taught classes of different levels for six years, and I have also worked as a volunteer for associations supporting sick or handicapped children, before following my life partner to Singapore. Settled in this little corner of Asia for seven years, we live an experience rich in discoveries and encounters.
After teaching in a language school and giving private tuitions, I joined the team at La Petite Crèche in 2015 and participated in setting it up. I am delighted to welcome your little ones in a caring and green environment, where they’ll discover the world, play and evolve at their own pace.
I have a passion for the arts & crafts, so I undertook training to use arts as a means to stimulate children’s creativity and development while helping them acquire new skills.
I am the mother of a four-year old. Outside of work, I practice geocaching, hiking, travelling and cooking; I also enjoy observing fauna.
