Are you a bilingual parent looking for a fun way to promote bilingualism in your child?
Or maybe want to take some "baby steps" towards learning Spanish together with your little one?
$172 per 8 weeks / age 12-36 months
(click info/ registration for special Early Bird pricing)
At Baby Linguists we know that raising a bilingual child is not easy. We also know that children acquire language best through play and interaction. That's why we've created an engaging, play-based program to make learning Spanish fun for your little one.
Babies will enjoy music, puppets and finger plays as they effortlessly benefit from the cognitive boost that comes with the bilingual advantage.
Toddlers will enjoy music, stories, and hands on games and activities to help them learn vocabulary that they can use in their everyday activities while we nurture their curious minds and help them benefit from the bilingual advantage too.
Prior knowledge of Spanish is never required. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to learn. Sessions A, B, and C of Spanish Tots can be taken in any order.
