Baby & Toddler Sessions for 0-3 years
Activities used within the sessions engage all the senses & promote skills needed for other areas of learning. Studies show that children learning another language perform better at literacy & numeracy for example than those who haven’t been exposed to another language. La Jolie Ronde classes offer all the benefits of other early learning classes such as music groups, sing and sign activities and other sensory classes, but with the additional benefit of providing a child with a "skill for life” thus equipping them for an increasingly global & competitive world.
Programmes and Sessions
La Jolie Ronde’s Baby and Toddler Programme is available in French and Spanish and has been designed for use with parents and babies or children aged up to 3 years.
La Jolie Ronde offers authentic sounds of the French/Spanish language. The sessions are a mix of fun, interactive language based activities, designed for babies and toddlers aged 0-3 years.
The sessions are about exposing toddlers to the language through exploration & play. Babies and Toddlers will learn via a combination of sounds and activities delivered through action songs, rhymes, stories, role play and fun craft activities. Most importantly the toddlers will learn at their own pace. Parent/Carer participation is important. Not only do they become involved, babies and toddlers become more confident and less inhibited; a great 'social' occasion as well as opportunity for Parents/Carers to explore & learn as well.
Sessions are delivered in a friendly, safe and caring environment. The programme concentrates on concepts the toddler is already familiar with in everyday life, covering 14 topics. Therefore he or she is not learning a new concept with a new language but a new language while doing or talking about something they know.
Our teddy bear, Bonbon or Caramelo, will play an integral part in the programme.
The La Jolie Ronde CDs will expose your child to the correct sounds of the language. Different voices (authentic voices of very young children & adults) and engaging sounds will entertain the babies and toddlers and leave them wanting to listen again & again! Some of the chants, rhymes or songs have a specific meaning and your child will recall the fun activity they did during their sessions eg. dressing up, learning about colours. The CDs are available for parents to buy and will enable you to practise phrases that have been learnt as well as singing along to the familiar songs at home, at bathtime, bedtime or even in the car!
