Our Padres & Madres have shared their stories of how Spanish Tots and Bebes has developed new language skills.
Spanish tots was one of the first groups I took my little boy to post lockdown & it’s safe to say I was very anxious! However, Lauren is such a warm and welcoming person and I instantly knew this was going to be a group we loved.
When we first started going, my little boy wasn’t saying too many English words- never mind Spanish! But after just a few sessions he was really starting to enjoy joining in with the actions and attempting to sound out the Spanish words to the songs. He has become a lot more vocal, his vocabulary has widened hugely! He can say all of the English words to the songs now with the help of actions and can recognise the Spanish translation.
It has been amazing for his confidence too! So not only have these classes helped with his first language, they’ve really helped with introducing Spanish as his second. Both of us love going to our Thursday class and I’m really excited to see how my son progresses with the Spanish language 🇪🇸 ♥️
Axel has just started his third term with Spanish Tots and Spanish Bebes and we couldn’t imagine Tuesdays without this class. Axel literally flaps his arms and legs with excitement when we walk in.
I have noticed him join in more as he develops too. He loves the class so much that if he is crying and I start singing your ‘hola Axel’ welcome song he stops crying. I have learned some Spanish so that is definitely a bonus. You have created such a welcoming environment for the mums which is really important because baby classes can be so daunting.
It’s nice that we can chat and join in with each other and watch each others babies grow and develop.
Thanks for being so fab and lovely.xxx
I absolutely loved our Spanish tots sessions. It’s such a fun morning of Spanish songs and sensory toys for baba’s. I went with both a baby and toddler. We were singing along to the songs, still singing them at home all week. Great ways to learn with repetition and catchy tunes that you too will be singing.
My 3 year old Caleb has picked up and still says a lot of the Spanish words after our term has finished. It’s definitely beneficial to get little ones aware of other languages. He is now comparing the two whilst learning French in his pre school. Lauren is absolutely full of energy from start to finish. Lots of patience for my question asking 3 year old Caleb. I would recommend for any age really. My baby Dylan 6 months loved meeting Jose and Maria each week too.
He really come on each week with all the baby sensory lights. Thank you Spanish tots for a lovely part of my maternity leave I will cherish. XX
