Science shows that children are primed to learn language from ages 0-6. There are a myriad of reasons why it is beneficial to introduce your child to new languages at a young age. Not only does it provide them with perspective for other cultures, but it also stregnthens cognitive abilities. Children show better memory capability and enhanced executive functioning, plus language learning provides them with global communication skills and increased career opportunities. Children who learn a foreign language first test higher on English tests than only-English speakers.
Culver City Montessori Preschool offers Montessori style learning, which encourages independent learning, responsibility, confidence, and self esteem. The program focuses on fostering socialization skills, emotional regulation, and overall kindness. Classrooms have ratios of 7:1 and don't ever exceed 14 students.
