QUADRIFOGLIO ENGLISH PRESCHOOL
(3 years - 6 years)
THIS APPROACH OFFERS OUR CHILDREN A VERY UNIQUE OPPORTUNUTY: THINK AND PLAY IN ENGLISH!
Just as M. Montessori theorized, the child's absorbent mind soaks up everything around him with extreme rapidity and semplicity. Knoledge of a second language from the first years of a child's life stimulates creativity in his mind. Children are sensitive to linguistic learning from infancy they are capable of distinguishing sounds that adults cannot, and are not afraid to make mistakes. Also, they are able to learn languages by simply listen and interacting with their peers.
