Kids to get Span­ish lessons in play cen­tre

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

A NEW for­eign lan­guage les­son fran­chise is com­ing to a pop­u­lar play cen­tre and nurs­ery in Hinck­ley.

Lo­cal mum Cristina West will op­er­ate Kid­slingo from the com­plex on Sketch­ley Mead­ows, of­fer­ing Span­ish classes to chil­dren from birth to age 11.

She joins fel­low fran­chisee Jo Relf who runs Kid­slingo French lessons in Hinck­ley and Lut­ter­worth.

Cristina said: “I was start­ing to think ahead to when my daugh­ter starts school and look­ing for a ca­reer which would be stim­u­lat­ing and ful­fill­ing, at the same time as giv­ing me the work/life bal­ance I was look­ing for.

“I love work­ing with chil­dren and speak­ing Span­ish, so set­ting up a Kid­slingo fran­chise seemed the per­fect blend. I think learn­ing lan­guages is so im­por­tant and I can’t wait to help in­spire kids to learn through in­ter­ac­tive, fun and mem­o­rable lessons.

“I of­ten speak Span­ish at home and see­ing my three-yearold re­spond to it from such a young age re­ally en­cour­aged me to pur­sue this op­por­tu­nity and teach oth­ers.”

Kid­slingo is a chil­dren’s lan­guage fran­chise busi­ness that teaches French and Span­ish to more than 6,000 ba­bies, tod­dlers and pri­mary school kids through a na­tional net­work of 60 fran­chisees. Its in­no­va­tive ap­proach is based on the sci­ence of learn­ing and uses a clever mix of mu­sic, games, role-play, drama and sto­ry­telling.
