Parent & Me II is all about the toddlers! In this high-energy play based Spanish immersion playclass, we will walk through the second year of bilingual language development -- the early verbal stage -- by singing silly songs with hand motions, playing fun movement games, dancing to some great beats, and more. We do all of this around fun themes relevant to this age group like farm animals, zoo animals, dinosaurs, under the sea, snack time, and more! In Parent & Me II, the teacher leads the parent in how to engage with the child in Spanish through games, music, and language activities, and the parent then transfers this to the child. We also advise families on how to keep the intentional language learning going all week long. We will also directly engage with the child, singing their name, commenting on the toys they may show to the camera, on their awesome dance moves, on their likes/dislikes etc. The other key part of this class is that we want to welcome any questions about child-directed Spanish and/or raising bilingual kids. So you’ll be able to ask questions as we go. Basically, we’re here to walk with you through your child’s second year+ of bilingual language development, and provide resources, songs, and activities that will help you support the use of Spanish in the home. Set your child up for future bilingualism by starting them early and being part of the learning process with this fun-filled immersion class!
(This class will be predominantly Spanish immersion, but please note that some discussion, Q&A, clarification, etc. may be done in English or both languages, depending on the group. The songs and activities will all be in full Spanish immersion. Parents who don’t know Spanish are welcome, as they will learn through immersion too!)

We love Sarah JImena's energy and how she says all the student's names during Zumbini class. We also love seeing Sofía during class. My daughter always points and says: "Sofía!"

The music is fun, the movements are a good fit for the age group, and the instructor is cheery. We're really liking the new songs we're learning. It was also great that we got our full time this week since tech problems have kept the instructor from starting on time other weeks.
On a technical note, it's difficult to hear the instructor speaking while music is playing. We'd also love a little more interaction with the instructor. It's easy to find prerecorded yoga classes for kids on YouTube. However, a live class gives so much more opportunity for kids to build a relationship with the instructor, and the engagement of a live class (hearing her name, asking and answering questions, etc) is what keeps my child interested.

It’s awesome to have access to these class recordings after the class, so that we can continue to incorporate this during the week at home.

About Bilingüitos Spanish Immersion
Bilingüitos exists to cultivate and celebrate bilingualism all around us. We are locally run Spanish immersion programs based out of Loudoun County, Virginia. As of summer 2020 we are also happy to be offering online programs. We offer language classes and programs for children of all ages — Mommy & Me, Preschool, Afterschool, you name it. We also have classes for adult learners because we believe in bilingualism for all! In addition to teaching language through classroom games, activities, and lessons, we also believe in enrichment programs (think interdisciplinary skills anywhere from science experiments to art projects to cooking classes to yoga) because we want our students to be able to use their bilingualism across all domains. Both at our facility and through off-site private/charter classes, we are committed to our local community. For all those in the pursuit of bilingualism, we extend the opportunity to learners of all linguistic backgrounds — native speakers, heritage language students, and second language learners alike. Our mission in the classroom is to create a positive multicultural learning environment where our students explore and discover freely, immerse themselves in a new language and culture, and gain the self-confidence they need as they grow into future bilingual leaders. Beyond the classroom, we are a vibrant and diverse community of families who are passionate about bilingualism and dedicated to instilling a lifelong love for learning in their children. We delight in bringing our local bilingual community together through playdates, storytimes, seasonal parties, movie nights, and other events all around Loudoun. Finally, through our online resources like our blog and podcast, we aim to equip parents with the knowledge and tools they need in order to forge the path to bilingualism for their children. We believe that adding and maintaining a second language is not always easy, but that it is always, A L W A Y S worth it!
