A new language class is coming to town and we got the scoop (and a trial class) for you!
The Language Learning Network is an innovative program that is currently running in East Rutherford and heading to Hoboken. Classes explore language through hands-on art projects, activities and play, helping each child to incorporate their newly learned vocabulary into a fun activity with their friends.
LLN offers early childhood language programs (in Spanish, German, French & more) using the Reggio Emilia approach, a philosophy applied to teaching in preschools in & around the Italian town of Reggio Emilia. This child-led approach focuses on working in groups, and using a child's creativity and all senses to learn language. So all lessons are taught through dance, music, art and play.
We did a little research on the Reggio Emilia approach, and it reminds us of the Montessori philosophy. (Each side will argue the differences, but to the common folk- it's a similar approach!) Child led, calm environments, and use of real objects & manipulatives are involved in each lesson. So for those that love the Montessori program, this language class is for you!
