Languages at Kingwood Montessori are part of our daily routine. Spanish and in the toddler classroom, American Sign language, are incorporated in the morning circle time, and in daily activities.
A Spanish teacher provides a wonderful opportunity for exploration through the spoken word, children are actively engaged with their senses: they listen to the different linguistic sounds, move their bodies to demonstrate their understanding of vocabulary, and create artwork and visual materials to develop their knowledge.
The focus is on child-centered experiential learning. When children are exposed to languages early, it develops connections and networks in the brain and stimulates the ability to learn languages easily as the child grows.
Children have fun learning languages, and they enjoy sharing their experiences with their peers, parents and family members.
