Bring Kids to Your School
If your school hasn’t yet added Kids Like Languages classes, you can ask them to do so.
First, the school principal and/or parent organization chooses to host Kids Like Languages in their school. Next, they determine which languages will be offered and the days, times and room in which the classes will be held. Finally, Kids Like Languages manages all enrollment directly with parents and provides instructors, curriculum, and materials.
Parents have been successful by gathering a group of parents interested in adding language classes, then worked with their PTA and school administrators.
For assistance, please contact Kids Program Director Claudia Mesa for assistance. Phone: 503.658.1980.
