Toc Toc Spanish for Kids


¡Hola! Toc Toc Spanish will be very happy (¡muy felices!) to have you in its immersive Spanish program for babies and toddlers.

Classes are a fun mix of story time, sing-alongs, dancing, games, and puppet shows, and they're great for kids with any level of Spanish. Don’t worry if you don’t speak the language—you can learn with your child. The program is best for babies and toddlers ages 0-36 months. Older siblings are welcome to come as well.

Toc Toc classes are the perfect opportunity to expose your baby to a second language right when the "language learning window" opens. Accompanied by parents or caregivers, children start learning Spanish through a variety of activities such as singing simple, rhythmic songs, dancing, running, spinning, and jumping around the room. Teachers make sure that children have a great time in class.

My First Book Club


Through My First Book Club, children will gain a love of reading and an appreciation of books. They'll have the opportunity to become part of a community of readers and experience the social power of peers working together to explore the wonderfully exciting world of books. 

Clubs meet for one hour each week for ten consecutive weeks. Each session supports early childhood learners in making meaning while they read, think, and talk about books. Through the use of an interactive read-aloud, habits of a good reader are demonstrated. Children participate in guided conversations and activities about featured books.

Each club is kept to a maximum of 6 readers, and clubs are organized by age group. If you have a group of 4-6 children and would like to host a club, My First Book Club can create a class for you at your home.

My First Book Club will help your children establish their identities as readers while building the foundational skills for reading.
