Our daughter has been attending Spanish language classes at Las Mariposas for almost 4 years. This experience has been a positive one for our entire family. We believe the opportunity to learn Spanish will help her to better understand the children that she meets in school and in the community. It is our hope that she gains a respect and appreciation for another culture, one that is here in our own backyard, through learning the language. We hope to expand the horizons and future possibilities of both of our children, through language classes at Las Mariposas.
The teachers at Las Mariposas are wonderful with children. They are full of energy and ideas to keep the children motivated. Our whole family has had the opportunity to learn with her at home and on the road. We learn the songs that will be performed on stage together through performances coordinated by Las Mariposas. The teachers and staff work together to provide the students with as much exposure to the language and culture as possible through concerts, community events that they participate in/sponsor, such as First Friday’s in Ballston Spa and through the projects that they work on with the children in class – the yearly sugar skull displays in the store in celebration of Día de los Muertos. This is a great program!
