A selection of Children Songs in Spanish guides the class from start to finish. Games and activities are related to the lyrics, in order to familiarize the children with the words and their meanings. Some of the songs encourage the children to dance. Our program combines the benefits from music, meaningful play and exposure to a second language for babies and young children. Although they will not be proficient in Spanish by solely attending our classes, our program will serve as a solid base to introduce them to bilingualism and stimulate their brain development by active music participation.

Cucu's PlayHouse is a Language Immersion School located in San Rafael, California that specializes in teaching Spanish through Music and Movement to children aged 3 months to 5 years old.
Through singing, dancing, and playing interactive games, Cucu's PlayHouse stimulates children's creativity and imagination, encourages speech development, social and physical skills and develops their innate musicality. Along with spoken language, music is one of the most valuable learning tools—and Cucu's PlayHouse lets kids learn while having fun! In addition to all the undeniable benefits of engaging your child in musical activities from an early age, Cucu's PlayHouse class will also expose them to a second language. According to recent studies, the ideal age to start exposing kids to a second language is between 0 and 3 years of age—doing so stimulates their brain development and benefits kids cognitively, socially and culturally.
