Jessica Tessier - Le Petit Prince FFDC founder

Jessica Tessier

Founder and Woollahra Educatrice

“I first recognised my natural ability to communicate and nurture the development of children when I began babysitting and nannying at the age of thirteen.  Throughout high-school I had a steady stream of babysitting, which I continued to pursue whilst studying a Bachelor Degree in Business at UTS.

In 2012, I was offered the opportunity to study abroad at Toulouse Business School in France.  This experience was invaluable in broadening my social and cultural capacities and also allowed me to meet my husband, Maxime.  My time in France along with a French partner have underpinned my learning and love for the French language.  Upon returning to Sydney in 2014, I worked for three years in the corporate world before deciding to leave the sheep life behind to follow my dream of creating my own business in childcare.  Combining my love of the French language with a long standing passion for working with children, Le Petit Prince French Family Daycare was born.

I endeavour to provide a wholesome and nurturing environment for the children in my care, as well as a professional and engaging service for parents and families.”

“Similarly to Jess, I discovered my love for early childhood care through babysitting and nannying whilst I was living in Menton in France and studying in Monaco. Post-graduation, I worked in the luxury hospitality industry for over ten years, which allowed me to develop excellent communication and customer service skills. 

I moved to Australia in 2013 to learn English as my third language (native in French and fluent in Italian). I soon met my dear friend Jessica, and also my long-term partner, Yoan, with whom I decided to build a life with here. To establish myself in Australia I worked in luxury hotels and high-end retail stores, where my strong work ethic was quickly recognised as I progressed to managerial positions. Despite my success, I longed to return to working with children and was inspired by the joy and success Jessica had found in opening her Le Petit Prince French Family Day Care in Waverley. 

To make the change, I completed my Certificate III and interned with the Margaret Early Learning Center Group. Six years after arriving in Australia, I am thrilled to have opened my own Le Petit Prince daycare in Bondi Junction. My goal is to invest in the healthy behavioural development of your child and develop their grasp on french language culture as we both watch them evolve to their full potential.”
