— When children are busy having fun, learning becomes natural and easy.
— Children learn best when learning comes as a side-effect of a fun activity.
— Fun learning is more likely to stay with a child as they grow up.
— Laughter and fun brings people closer, helps them communicate, and creates a shared experience and common bond with classmates.
— An environment filled with laughter strengthens the relationship of teachers and children.
You can therefore feel confident when your child comes home and says that they didn’t learn anything today, as they were too busy having fun!
— The younger you learn a second language, the easier it is in the future to learn further languages.
— Multilingualism does not overburden a child’s learning, but opens their mind and strengthens their senses.
— Multicultural settings give children a flexible spirit and strengthens their powers of observation, and they will continue to live very naturally in multi-cultural environments.
— A child learning a second (or third, or fourth...) language does not weaken their mother tongue.
English is the most commonly used language in the world, and the third most common first language. Even if you do not plan for your child to continue in an English school, the benefits of learning English at a young age have life-long benefits.
Under school age children should minimize the amount of time spent being still for extended periods, except time spent sleeping. Rather than worksheet and pencils, we teach in a more creative and inspiring manner using our bodies, imagination and the world around us.
Movement and creative learning means teaching children by thinking outside of the box of traditional methods. Traditionally teaching is done using worksheet and pencils, and being stationary at a desk. We believe children learn better when learning in more creative and fun ways. Letters can be written outside in the sand using sticks, we can learn about volcanoes by making paper maché ones and making them erupt, we can count snowflakes to learn our numbers, and most importantly we can use the children’s own interests to encourage them to engage in learning.
— Benefits of movement and creative learning for children include development of motor skills, improvement of cognitive development, and encouragement of creative thinking.
— Children develop a life-long love for movement and exploration of the world around them.
— When children are physically involved in an activity they learn faster and better through personal experiences.
At L&L, we want your child to have fun learning. It can be learning a new game or a new skill, working on our social, academic and physical skills all at once.
We go outside twice a day to our own park as well as neighboring parks, in almost all weather, throughout the year. We also use our own yard for teaching lessons outside when possible.
