Fall 2017 Saturday Language School to learn Spanish or French

We promote early second language acquisition for children who want to learn a second (or third!) language. Children Pre-K (3 years old/potty trained) to 5th grade will have the opportunity to learn and gain knowledge of the rich cultural traditions of the target cultures. Playgroup classes are available for the younger children focusing only on culture and minimal language.
