Bilingual Babies is a play-based, Spanish immersion program developed to introduce early education concepts in Spanish. The Bilingual Babies program is based on the Rhode Island's Early Learning and Development Standards (RIELDS). Following the naturally developing language skills of infants, toddlers and preschoolers, Spanish language immersion is presented in a fun, exciting and hands-on manner. During our parent-child groups, having caregivers participate, allows for carryover of targeted vocabulary from week to week, while also introducing (or reinforcing) vocabulary that caregivers can use, with an emphasis on pronunciation. Weekly carryover sheets are distributed that highlight the class vocabulary and concepts. Our Pre-K - 3 program presents these same early concepts in a grade/age-appropriate way.
Luz and Carolina wanted to create a space where native and non-native familias could expose their children to the Spanish language and culture in a fun and interactive manner.
