There is a limited amount of time between birth and 6 years of age that specific parts of the brain can be developed and enhanced. Exposing a child to a foreign language at such an early age can result in much easier and better fluency than if learned later in life.

It decreases frustration in infant and toddler classrooms by giving students a way to express their needs and wants. Studies show a link between early Sign Language skills and higher IQ's. Sign Language has also been shown to promote early literacy skills in preschool children.

Research proves that children who are exposed to multiple languages at an early age not only achieve much better results in languages, but also in math, science and music.
Music & Movement
Experts say music should be routinely taught in preschool to maximize children’s brain development. Our music instructor teaches not only songs, dances and finger plays, but also teaches about musical notes and symbols, instruments and musical genres.
Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behavior, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.
