We invite your child to explore the world outside Fair Haven! Introduce your child to a second language (French or Spanish) and culture other than his or her own through songs, interactive role playing, games, and beginner conversation. Each week a theme is chosen (for example, colors, vegetables, fruits) and vocabulary introduced. A craft and a story in the target language reinforce the chosen theme. Subsequent weeks build on what was taught previously. Your child will become enthusiastic about learning a new language in a fun and educational environment. At the conclusion of each session, your child will impress you with a recording of what he or she learned in class!
