Saturday Story Time – in French!
We’re thrilled to be partnering with La Petite Ecole, Columbia’s dual language immersion school, to present a Saturday Story Time with a difference on Nov. 23. On that Saturday afternoon, staff and teachers from La Petite Ecole will be reading their favorite stories to our audience — in French!
Studies have shown that early exposure to foreign languages is immensely beneficial to children’s linguistic and neurological development. And just because you and your kids don’t speak French doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy the stories or understand what is going on! The instructors at La Petite Ecole are experienced in communicating in all ways and you will be surprised at how much you’ll understand! This is a unique opportunity to expose you and your children to a brand new experience. Don’t miss it!
