Tribu Lil' Learners was developed by bilingual educators, Angie Pena and Gina Fernandez.
Angie's background of early bilingual literacy along with Gina's Montessori training and early childhood background is a combined experience of over 35 years. Together, they have created a unique early ed bilingual program for the Conejo Valley, focusing on developing bilingual skills and future global citizens.
Tribu Lil' Learners is a a high-quality bilingual preschool program where students will develop kindergarten readiness skills in both Spanish and English. The program is interactive with a focus on the Montessori philosophy along with an emphasis on compassion and honor of all human beings as global citizens. Purposeful teaching is applied to help children gain knowledge and skills following CA state standards including reading and writing development and mathematical skills in addition to exposure to the arts.
Tribu Lil' Learners is located in Westlake Village, CA.
Opening September 2020
Studies show that children are born with the ability to identify sounds from every language and as they grow, their skills narrow to focus on the language(s) they hear most often. Learning more than one language at the same time is not confusing to young children. Rather, it helps them develop multiple, but inter-related language systems and increased cognitive functions. Dual language learners tend to demonstrate greater working memory, reasoning, flexibility, and problem-solving. Switching between languages also gives them an increased ability to monitor their environment more efficiently. Knowing more than one language can increase career opportunities, and help children gain an appreciation for all cultures.
