Give Your Child the Benefits of a Bilingual Classroom

August 10th, 2016

As a parent of a 16-month old, you’re trying to decide which school would be more beneficial to your child. While all your options can be daunting, the choice becomes clear when you learn that our toddler program offers Spanish. Here is why your choice now becomes clear.

Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that one of the most sensitive time periods for a child to learn was from birth to three years old. During this time the child is unconsciously acquiring knowledge not only through interacting with his environment but through language as well.se-habla-espanol1These first three years are critical period for language development. It is the only time in life a person will learn so much about language in such a short time. This is why at our CDS toddler classroom we have a full immersion experience with one adult speaking only Spanish and the other speaking only English.
