Language immersion with your help
A parent’s role in their child’s learning process is key for us.
Early childhood is the best place for parents to jump on the language wagon, and we can show you HOW to do it!
How does Nanos guide children in their learning language adventure?
Our aim is to immerse the children in Spanish, through games and stimulating activities specially designed for each age group.
Interaction and communication is key in our programme and therefore encouraged from day one.
Why do we encourage parents to get involved?
Frequent exposure to a language is fundamental for learning and understanding.
Revisiting the activities seen in class will create a learning experience that you can share with your child. Finding a moment at the same time every day will make it an enjoyable part of their daily routine.
Informed parents can provide the following KEY elements of high-quality language immersion:
- Personal interaction.
- Extended time exposure to language in context.
- Engagement in meaningful learning tasks.
- Engagement in early literacy.
Moreover, language-learning adults can be the best models for young children as they try to learn the language themselves.
How can parents get involved?
Nanos Parents: 1,2 and 3 year olds. At this young age children will be accompanied by Mum, Dad or a carer.
Parents attending the class will of course see all the activities first hand and will be able to recreate them at home as part of their daily routine.
Through Nanos’ website, parents will be able to access their own area to review the activities, games and songs seen in class.
Pekes Parents: 4,5 and 6 year olds. Parent attendance is optional for this class.
Parents attending class will of course see all the activities first hand and will be able to recreate them at home as part of their daily routine.
Parents that cannot attend class will be able to access the activities through the website.
Pekes Parents will have their own area to review the activities, games, songs and their child’s work. There will be suggestions and tips on how to encourage further exposure to the language outside the class.
Grandes Parents: 6, 7 and 8 year olds. Child only classes.
Grandes Parents will have their own area to review the activities, games, songs and their child’s work. There will be suggestions and tips for parents that wish to be more involved in their child’s development.
Children will be encouraged to complete simple activities that will help them to reinforce the language being learnt.
What can parents learn? Will parents learn Spanish too?
Language-learning adults can be the best models for young children as they try to learn the language themselves, so why not join in the fun? You might win a sticker or two!
