We are a language program for kids following all the requirements of a preschool. Our teachers make learning a new language fun by incorporating games, art, singing and other fun activities. Either at the table with friends or up on our stage, your child will have a great time at Small Talkers while learning Spanish.
Small Talkers Language Program was created using a highly successful immersion program formed over many years using thousands of students. A large part of this system is activity based. We offer spacious indoor and outdoor areas supplied with all the tools needed for imaginative play, manipulative toys, music, dance, theater, art and reading and writing for older children.
From ages 18 months and up to children in 3rd grade, your child will have licensed, professional teachers aiding in every step in their journey towards learning about new cultures and languages through fun-filled, educational activities.
We are all aware that young children are able to pick up languages quickly. Our goal is to help families with interests in other cultures and languages have a place to put their child ahead and open their minds to the joys of the world. By creating an activity-based program, we have made the learning process fun and easy for any child to transition into. Your child will begin speaking words and phrases quickly, while at the same time creating works of art to show off to family. Not to mention all the new friends.
Many families have "lost" their heritage when they "lost" their language of origin. These languages are many, but we will focus on only Spanish. "Learning the language" is a key step in appreciating any culture and we strive to bring that exposure to your child in daily activity that will make them want to learn more.
Specialists know that learning a language young aides in learning languages at an older age as well as developing important areas of the brain. By starting early you are ensuring a life-long love and ability towards learning something that for many is a daunting task.

Some of our students come to us already fluent in Spanish. For these students Small Talkers is a great outlet where kids can speak to other kids in their native language besides using this skill only at home with family.
These kids are a great asset to us and a joy to have as little helpers whose confidence grows enormously as they are exposed to more people who appreciate their skills.
Even though these children will be more advanced than others their same age, they will be kept with age appropriate classes for better socialization.
