Benefits of Learning a Second Language in the Early Childhood Years
Research proves that children who are exposed to a second language at an early age achieve much better academic results, not only in languages but also in math, science and music. In other words, learning Spanish fosters brain development! Children who receive even small amounts of second-language instruction are more creative and better at solving complex problems than those who do not. Young children easily learn to think in two languages. The development of that ability triggers the essential abstract thinking skills that are the basic tools for further learning.

Eight reasons why is yoga such a great activity for children.

• FUN is the focus of a kid’s yoga class rather than the perfection of a pose. Every pose taught is safe and age-appropriate.
• Yoga helps with self-esteem, flexibility and strength.
• Within a class, a yoga-community develops, resulting in a positive environment in which to learn.
• Setting boundaries, following directions and becoming good listeners are all skills that become stronger in a yoga class.
• In addition to the poses, yoga also offers ways for children to relax.
• Quiet time is built into each yoga class, allowing children to slow down and tune into their creativity and feelings.
• Patience and respect for others and themselves, caring and learning about their bodies, are all areas of focus in yoga.
• Working cooperatively in partners is also a great way to grow and learn new skills.
