After school language program for kids 3 to 8 The Children’s Director/Founder of The Language Workshop for Children, Francois Thibaut, created an enriched play method to teaching French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese and English to children. The goal is to ensure children retain what they learn for life. Children discover language through movement, touch, site, hearing, voice and emotion. All of these senses combined allow children to connect with the language they’re learning and passionately discover their ability to learn a new language.
The Thibaut Technique® is a whole language approach which employs both sides of the brain through original music, vocabulary building songs, language immersion, festive visual aids, action games and native-fluent language teachers. The Language Workshop for Children offers after school programs and activities at their Northern NJ location. After school programs at the Montclair, NJ location are available to children three years and older. Language immersion preschool, camps and enrichment classes are also available at The Language Workshop for Children located in Essex County, NJ.
