French President Emmanuel Macron said he has heard "positive" news about the condition of child victims of Thursday's knife attack in Annecy.
Mr Macron was visiting the town where four children were attacked.
He said a young British girl had "woken up" after surgery. A Dutch toddler is also reportedly recovering.
The suspect - a Syrian man with refugee status in Sweden - remains in custody and is due to undergo a psychiatric assessment.
The 31-year-old is thought to have been living homeless in Annecy and recently had an asylum claim rejected. No terrorist motive is suspected.
Four children in all - aged between 22 and 36 months - and two pensioners were wounded during the assault.
In a speech in the Alpine town, Mr Macron said that attacking children was "the most barbaric act".
