“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.
The Founder and Director
After graduating from HEC (Hautes Etudes Commerciales) in 2002, I started my career in Paris as a financial auditor at Ernst & Young, before holding various positions in several large international groups (Louis Dreyfus, Société Générale, Standard Chartered Bank) in Paris, then in Singapore since 2006.
In 2012, I left the wonderful world of large groups with no regrets and embarked on an entrepreneurial project with La Petite Ecole, alongside my wife Viviane Salin.
What was initially a family project (a bilingual school for our two children, now aged 12 and 10) has turned into an entrepreneurial adventure. We have grown and learnt to surround ourselves with experts to carry out our projects.
After three years of success, we opened La Petite Crèche in order to offer a more comprehensive service to families in Singapore. Two years later, we took up the double challenge of launching La Petite Ecole in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City concurrently.
Since 2019, I have assumed the management of the group La Petite Ecole, in close collaboration with our School Principals, and more particularly with Maria Lamrani Alaoui, Pedagogical Director of the group.
Head of Playgroup
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 seven year old. Outside of work, I practice geocaching, hiking, travelling and cooking; I also enjoy observing fauna.
