Our Program

  • "Two Terrific" Features:

  • The perfect combination of free play and structured activities.

    “Two Terrific” is a play-based preschool alternative that will develop the whole child—intellectually, emotionally, linguistically, and physically. We believe, with psychologist and educational theorist Jean Piaget, that “play is the work of childhood.” Our program, which combines free play with structured activities and routines, is the perfect way to prepare your child for preschool while also nurturing her innate curiosity and creativity.

    Your child will benefit from all the features of a typical American preschool, while also receiving the best language instruction from LWFC’s professional language teachers. She will have the chance to learn from her peers, her teachers, and enrichment instructors. This program will truly enrich your child’s daily life at home and outside of school.

    Early childhood professionals and experts in music, art, yoga, and language instruction will guide your child through each morning session. Instruction will be taught using full immersion in the target language(s) of your choice.

    With our comprehensive, varied curriculum, there’s no need to travel from place to place. “Two Terrific” combines the activities your child loves, all under one roof!

  • A play-based curriculum consisting of age-appropriate activities:

    Children in this age group are capable of learning a new language at an incredible pace if the fundamentals are presented in the right way. That is precisely what happens in Language Workshop for Children (“LWFC”) preschools. Using the The Thibaut Technique®, your child will be prepared for the best schools in the city, as well as today’s globalized economy!

    Children in the 5 Day Program will take both French and Spanish, and children who attend the 2 or 3 Day Programs choose one language from either French or Spanish.

    Two Terrific language classes will open your child’s neurological pathways to the sounds of different languages before the age of 3; experts agree that this is an optimal time for children to learn new languages.

    Classes for both groups will feature original music, vocabulary-building songs, and games, all facilitated by a native-fluent language teacher.

    All students will receive a complimentary DVD with a Professor Toto animation to help your child practice pronunciation at home, as well as access to the Professor Toto website. Professor Toto is a series of multi-award winning language education tools for young children. Animated DVDs, song-filled CDs, and colorful workbooks introduce a stimulating menagerie of characters who teach French or Spanish. Youngsters watch and laugh with other students and a funny professor. They sing language-building songs and interact in lively classroom lessons. Best of all, because students are emotionally engaged and immersed in their new language, they really learn. Professor Toto is great for toddlers and preschoolers.

    Storytime at “Two Terrific” is specially geared towards fostering a love of literacy in your child, while also building vocabulary skills through singing! Our storytime incorporates a variety of books in order to appeal to all students.

    Classroom activities will promote letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and mastery of the alphabet, ensuring that your child is well on the way to becoming a strong reader. We incorporate a myriad of fun activities, including puppetry, dramatic play, and matching games, and students are exposed to a variety of books.

    “Two Terrific” is, above all, a creative program! During Arts & Crafts, students experiment with a variety of different media, including paint and clay. Our Arts & Crafts activities will be aligned with our thematic units. During our “nature” unit, for example, our teaching artists and students will decorate the classroom like a forest, complete with paper trees, leaves, insects, and animals!

    Fun and engaging music programming! Our Traditional Songs CD’s (played in your target language) help children to learn the basics of music literacy through singing, rhythmic chants, and the use of props and instruments. By imitating animals and engaging in other creative movements, students will also learn about beat, phrasing, and timing.

    Our yoga classes, taught by teachers who specialize in yoga for toddlers, will help your child improve his body awareness, motor coordination, flexibility, balance, and even his self-confidence. What’s more, your child’s imagination will be engaged as he balances like a tree or meows and moos during cat-cow pose.
