Music Class

By | News | No Comments

Our children’s music classes are just that—and more. Playful, rich, and engaging! We welcome music into our classrooms on a daily basis and additional structured classes in each classroom each week!

Learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. A music-rich experience for children of singing, listening and moving is really bringing a very serious benefit to children as they progress into all areas of learning!

Language Immersion

By | News | No Comments

All parents wonder excitedly what their child’s first words will be — and then there are those who wonder in what language they’ll hear them. For some families, multilingualism helps keep cultural and ethnic heritage alive; others are drawn to the promise of personal and professional opportunities in the future. Either way, multilingualism has been proven to offer immediate cognitive advantages to kids and to help their brains work more efficiently.

In some schools, there are two teachers per classroom who each speak a different non-English language exclusively, providing kids with a truly multilingual environment.  Around age 6 months, infants are capable of discriminating the sounds of all the languages of the world.

Kids in the Kitchen

Cooking can help young kids learn and practice some basic math concepts and build language skills. And the experience of creating meals with you can help build their self-confidence and lay the foundation for healthy eating habits.

Cooking offers children a variety of learning experiences. It’s a practical way to teach kids basic life skills, as well as academic skills involving reading, science and math. Time spent together in the kitchen also encourages interaction and communication between parents and children.
