A Spanish immersion, nature-based play class for children 0-3 years old and their caregiver
Did you know that babies are born with the ability to hear and distinguish all the sounds from the world's 6,500 languages from birth? increible!
Amiguitos is a weekly program that gives you and your baby or toddler the opportunity to explore nature, make new friends, and get early exposure to the Spanish language. Our Amiguitos naturally learn about the world through real life experiences and interactions. We will introduce Spanish when their brains are ripe for language learning through songs, movement, nature-themed activities, and stories using the real, natural world around us as inspiration. Here at Amigos del Bosque, we are committed to providing developmentally appropriate activities for your children that supports their emotional, physical, linguistic, and social growth. This class is for bilingual families or monolingual families who want to begin the journey of raising their children bilingual!
Bebés y Yo (0-18 months plus caregiver) with Teacher Sarah
This class is designed to offer a safe space for our babies to explore nature in the comfort of the Escuelita while we support one another with all of the joys and difficulties that come with raising a baby. Did you know that babies who spend time in nature learn to process their sensory needs in a different way? Join us for guided nature free play, a weekly discussion for caregivers, a themed activity or project with the children, plus songs, stories and sharing in Spanish.
