My Daughter Hannah attended Chantemerle for 6 weeks. Everyone in Chantemerle went out of their way to be kind and helpful. Hannah had a wonderful experience and learned loads. As a parent, I felt very confident that my daughter was being well looked after. She was treated more like a family member than a paying guest.
Fantastic school with amazingly friendly staff! My children always felt like home there! Thank you for the wonderful time and deep knowledge.
