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