Yak Academy South Denver
Being bilingual can increase children's intellect and academic performance, and best of all, kids love it! Studies show that early language learners score statistically higher on standardized college entrance exams than those who do not (Center for Applied Linguistics) and also show improvement in the verbal and non-verbal skills that enhance overall school performance (Brown University). Yak Academy classes capitalize on a child's window of opportunity for language, which research has shown to be from birth to about age 10!
We offer a variety of class types (divided according to age) and a variety of schedule choices. The 1-2 year old classes are parent participatory and are a fun opportunity for mom/dad/caregiver and child to learn together! 3-5 year old and 6-10 year old classes are child-only. All classes (preschool and weekly) incorporate songs, games, arts & crafts and snack time. Throughout these activities, children learn and practice functional language chunks and build basic 2nd language comprehension and speech production.
We invite you to try a FREE TRIAL CLASS with no obligation to enroll. Please contact us to sign-up or to ask any questions!
When we do pre-screen, what do we look for?
During the pre-screening process our CareForce team:
- Verifies profile information for accuracy
- Cross checks the Better Business Bureau for accreditation and reputation ratings
- Conducts an online media search for negative, newsworthy incidents
- Performs an overall reputation check by reading a sample of online reviews
Please note that the CareForce pre-screening results do not reflect a care provider's licensing status. Learn more about licensing information for child care centers and in-home day cares
Information reviewed during the pre-screening process can change at any time. Accordingly, please make sure you perform your own research on the care providers you are considering and feel completely comfortable with the company or individual you have selected. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for selecting an appropriate care provider for you and your family.
