Yekibood Children offers an interactive, nurturing, and loving environment for bilingual and multilingual children and their families. We provide opportunities for children to experience and learn about language and culture through fun social, musical, and artistic activities! In doing so, we try to create a dynamic sociocultural environment for children to gain cross cultural understanding, and develop positive notions of their parental heritage within a warm growing family outside of their home. We hope that by opening a small door, more space for intercultural conversation and understanding will be created. Our educational philosophy concentrates strongly on learning through the arts. As such we provide learning experiences for children that concentrate on movement, music, stories, play, and tactile experiences, where learning occurs through playful and meaningful interactions among children and the teachers. Through our developmentally appropriate curriculum, we aim to foster and develop childrenâ€™s language abilities by enhancing their listening skills, musical understanding, visual skills as well as provide opportunities for childrenâ€™s self-expression and socialization.
