Consejos Para Padres ~ Parenting Tips
Parenting involves lots of repetition. Children need multiple experiences with the same book, the same food, and the same toys. The repetition provides a sense of security, builds memory, and helps to establish routines. One idea is to listen to Spanish music in the car. Create a playlist with artists such as 1, 2, 3, Andres, and Toni Gimenez, or pick up a CD on Amazon. Try doing a search in your favorite music app. Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music all include several Spanish children’s artists. Let your child help pick favorite songs for the car rides, too. Involving children in the decision making process helps them to feel involved and important.
Pasitos is an eco-friendly, bilingual community based on learning and fun. Through a play based Reggio inspired curriculum, children gain the necessary literacy skills to make them successful in both Spanish and English. At the same time, they build social and emotional skills in working with peers and the maestras. Together these skills help open their minds and language capabilities. Teachers interact with the children to build strong academics and positive social skills.
