Program Facts

What are you doing to keep my family safe from COVID-19?

We take the health and safety of your family and our staff very seriously. At check-in every day, all students must pass a health screening questionnaire (and temperature checks during times of high community spread). We are also currently focusing even more on daily sanitization of the facility and materials. As always, hand-washing is a significant focus—especially upon entry, between activities, and before leaving. Masks are required for all adults while community spread remains high (though our staff is fully vaccinated thanks to an education campaign and incentives), and HEPA-grade air filters are running in every room. Our ventilation system is also set to push fresh air through the building constantly to further lower the risks of transmission from droplets and aerosols. 

What are Le Soleil's hours of operation?

Le Soleil is open Monday through Friday, from 8:00am to 6:00pm, with early drop-off available for those who need it (between 7am and 8am).

How much does it cost to send my child to Le Soleil each month?

*Tuition, fees, and deposits are non-refundable.

How do I pronounce "Le Soleil?"

"Luh So-lay"

What is the vaccination policy?

For the safety of our school community, Le Soleil requires that our students be up-to-date on the Idaho immunization schedule. The only exemptions accepted to this policy are valid medical exemptions signed by a licensed physician.

Who is eligible for the second child discount?

The sibling of another child currently enrolled at Le Soleil qualifies for the discount, based on the lowest enrolled schedule. Siblings of current students are also prioritized on our waitlist!

Where is Le Soleil?

302 West Idaho Street, on the edge of Downtown Boise.

How does my family join Le Soleil's program?

Simply visit the "Enrollment" link at the bottom of the page, fill out the form, and submit payment of one lottery fee per child. Within two business days, you'll get an email with confirmation that you're in our lottery enrollment pool along with more details about what that entails! You'll also be added to the informational email list for regular updates.

What is a diaper subscription?

For families of diapering children who don't want to have to worry about remembering when to bring another case of diapers and wipes to school, Le Soleil partners with local business Your Little Dove to offer an exclusive diaper subscription program. This subscription adds a fixed fee to your monthly tuition based on your child's schedule and in return Le Soleil provides unlimited quality, compostable diapers (in the appropriate size for your child, so you don't have to worry about growing out of a size before you run out) AND unlimited eco-friendly wipes for you while your child is in our care.

How do I schedule a tour?
Is there a dress code?

All students need to come in comfortable, labeled, weather-appropriate clothing.

Our preschoolers wear uniform tops or dresses every day but Friday, which helps encourage focus on the work and play at hand. Appropriate bottoms include pants or shorts and closed-toed shoes.

See our Uniforms page for sizing and styles.

It's easy! Private tours are available several times a week during our students' outdoor play time, and can be booked by clicking here and paying the refundable deposit to reserve a time. There's a video tour available on that page, too!

What is Le Soleil's food policy?
What is date night?

Once a month, students in our oldest (preschool) age group are invited to spend a Friday evening from 6-9pm at school to eat dinner, change into PJs, brush their teeth, and watch a French-language children's movie! It's a great opportunity for them to spend more social time in a special setting with friends and for the adults at home to spend a relaxing evening together.

We don't have a kitchen on-site, so ask that families provide lunch for their children. In order to make that process easier, we give each family an OmieBox® lunchbox as part of their enrollment. This lunchbox has separate insulated compartments that let you pack hot and cold things for your little one at the same time. If a child enrolls with severe allergies, we may limit what can be sent for lunch.

We provide healthy, adventurous afternoon snacks as part of tuition, and our preschoolers serve themselves to build confidence and competence.
