Several studies have shown that bilingual education has several advantages, providing cognitive, social and health benefits for young children. Add to this the benefits of the Montessori method, and you have an exceptional preschool. My older son enjoyed his preschool years in this school, and this prepared him well for the GISNY (German International School NY) and my daughter is very happy in the school now. I would highly recommend!
Mommy & Me at St. Bartholomew's Church
Mommy & Me is a music and movement program for our youngest students. This program is designed for parents and caregivers to share their child first social experiences and is run in Russian language.
Замечательная музыкальная программа, я бы даже сказала уникальная, так как проводится исключительно на русском языке. Тут и песни, и танцевальные элементы, и даже наши любимые сказки в интересно обыгранном музыкальном сопровождении. Все очень органично и непринужденно, то что нужно малышам и мамам (бабушкам, няням и всем кто пожелает присоединиться:)
Prospect Academy's Mommy&Me classes are a wonderful start for child and caregiver. Nadeshda is an engagingly warm, talented teacher who brings her love of music and children to each class. Nadeshda used aspects of Musical Round-Up's program and implemented them into her Russian Language Mommy&Me music class. This is a wonderful way to engage children in language development, introduce them to the school environment to make lasting friendships for parents and children alike.
