Our Preschool Campers are so very special to us!  This is the budding stage! Children typically learn a second language the same way they learn a first language. They may understand more than they speak, and that’s OK!

The Curriculum is designed to engage these young minds. We will keep our activities short.

We use repetition and simple role-play to keep learning in context!

The kids also learn songs,  learn alphabets and numbers, simple words and simple phrases using repetition and role play where we can practicalize learning for everyday use.

This camps is for Ages 3 – 5 years. We want to keep our kids engages, so space is limited

We know how active our preschoolers are, we require parents to be present during the entire class session to provide guidance to the kids.
