My child isn’t speaking yet, can I still join the classes?
Absolutely! Children are capable of learning multiple languages simultaneously. That’s how I learnt French! My family spoke French and English to me from birth and I can’t remember a time when I didn’t know both languages!

Here’s a video about the linguistic genius of babies:

I’ve never learnt a language or been very good at languages – will this be a problem?
Our classes are suitable for complete beginners and designed so we’re all just having a good time while picking up some French! The whole idea of the sessions are to inspire a love of languages and build confidence in children. I will never put parents on the spot by asking them to speak French in front of the group. We’ll sing some songs, play with the parachute, dance around in bubbles, read stories and generally have a good laugh and lots of fun!

Can I breastfeed during class?
Absolutely! Our classes are a safe space for breastfeeding, bottle feeding, little snacks etc. My little linguists love a raisin or piece of cheese! Everyone is welcome in our friendly sessions.

Do you do pay-as-you-go?
No, classes are payable by the half-term.

Can I join part way through the half-term block?
Of course! You and your child are welcome to join at any time in the term. The classes are pro-rata, so you only pay for the classes going forward.

Do you offer a free taster?
Usually we do, but in the current pandemic, we are discouraged from offering one-off sessions. To balance this out, we are offering trial packages of 3 classes for the price of 2! Please contact me for more information.

Do you offer sibling discount? Can I bring younger siblings?
Yes. Please contact me directly via email.
For online classes, sessions are charged per household, so there is no extra charge for siblings.

My child is extremely shy, will the sessions be OK for them?
Absolutely! One of my biggest core values is helping to grow children’s confidence. They will never be left out and will always be given the opportunity to participate in the class, but they will never be put on the spot. Sometimes, we all just need to sit and observe for a bit before we feel comfortable enough and that is completely understandable. With lots of different activities (crafts, parachute, songs, dancing, Makaton and more), there is something for everyone!

My child is quite fidgety or can’t sit still – is it still OK to bring them to class?
Of course! Kidslingo classes are not school, they are fun-filled and lively French sessions full of movement, dancing, Makaton and more. As long as your child is safe and not overly disruptive, they can move around to their heart’s content. Children learn in different ways, a lot of children move while wriggling about!

How do I book?
Booking is done online and paid with my secure online system. Simply find the class you’re interested below and click the button next to it.

I can’t make the day or time of the class I’m interested in, is it possible to create a new one?
I always try to accommodate as many people’s schedules as possible when I create a new class. Let me know if you would like to register your interest for another new class. If you know of any fellow parents who would be interested, it makes it easier to setup a new class when there is some demand.

If it is not possible to create a new group class – we do offer private sessions for your little one (either online or in person).
