Le Grand Nido (2.5 - 5 years old)
Thank you for taking the time to learn about Living the Language. We are so pleased that you’re interested in our program. We would love to welcome you into our facility and to provide your child with a full-immersion linguistic experience to help them become global-minded.
Unfortunately our Le Grand Nido Classroom is currently full; however, we will gladly add you to our waitlist.
Please note that we do have a non-refundable $200 waitlist fee. This benefits families by allowing us to accurately gauge interest levels and maintain a more precise and efficient waiting list.
Once you’ve completed the waitlist process, we will notify you of your position on the list and then when a spot becomes available.
Thank you for your interest in Living the Language.
In Le Grand Nido, we apply an important Montessorian principle: age mixing. This challenges younger students and gives older students a sense of responsibility.
The focus in these classrooms is on developing autonomy. The LTL environment, curriculum, and didactic materials all center around this principle. Every child has his/her own chores in the class to foster responsibility and community; these chores also help reinforce fine motor skills.
At Le Grand Nido, we emphasize politeness and courtesy. We work on table manners, etiquette, respect for others and the environment, and on sympathy and empathy.
Besides vocabulary and language skills, our toddlers expand their horizons by becoming familiar with numbers and letters. We also work on sensorial awareness: discovering textures, painting, knowing and recognizing family members (in photo albums), etc.
With a basic understanding in place, Le Grand Nido children take the first steps in verbal communication, reading, and writing.
