Classes: from 6 months to 12 years
Having fun while learning is as important as the learning itself. When children are feeling happy and relaxed they are more perceptive to learning and participating. This not only allows them to learn more easily, it also boosts their confidence and self-esteem which in turn boosts their social skills.
Each class is planned with activities and resources adapted to reach the expected outcome planned for the day, however, our classes are mainly child led and directed. If the children ask questions, show an interest in other topics or want to take the play experience through another direction then we will easily adapt and go with their flow. If they enjoy what they are doing, then they will be more prone to learning and more open to perceiving and understanding the world around them.
We can also tailor our weekly lessons to the plan of any nursery or school, as this allows for continuity and to reinforce what the children are learning.
Classes Start from age 6 months to age 12.
Children are learning Spanish through a cross-curricular where we also explore and reinforce other subjects in accordance with the Curriculum for Excellence such as

Arts & Crafts

A great way to transfer their thoughts and ideas into creations and as a means communication and expression of who they are how they feel. Great to create an atmosphere for bonding and using their new language skills to talk about what they are making, the materials, colours and creative ideas. As children get creative and they’re busy with the task at hand, they are able to use their new language skills even without realising they are doing so.

Combining music and movement allows children to learn to control their bodies, follow simple instructions and directions.

Besides, children are drawn to music and dancing, this brings social and emotional benefits, When young children dance together, they begin to construct a sense of community and appreciation for each other.
