Ages 3-5

 Preschoolers will learn French, Italian, ESL or Spanish languages through thematic lessons. that will be taught through activities such as songs, art, theater, dance, children's stories and vocabulary in general. 

Your child’s brain becomes accustomed to the sounds and rhythm of the language as it is actually spoken. From an adult’s perspective, this speech may seem too rapid to process. However, the brain of an adult and the brain of a young child are capable of completely different things. For a young child, listening and observing interactive conversations allows them to hear the sounds of Spanish in a social and emotional context. Conversations include lots of repetition, rhythm, rhyme and musicality, so that children can easily identify distinct sounds as they listen and interact with the teacher and the puppets.

Each session consists of 12 classes.
