What Parents Are Saying

It’s not just bilingualism. Tessa helped my daughter speak complete sentences in Spanish (which is amazing!) but every day there’s something new and enriching: from the cultural speakers, to Liberty Science Center visitors, and music classes – it’s great knowing that your child is at an elite school that’s really pulling out all the stops to help them develop.

Isabelle’s Dad

My son’s first exposure to school (of any kind) was Tessa. We were amazed at the pace at which he got acclimatized to Tessa and adjusted to being away from home and his parents. My son’s understanding of English was little to none when he joined. We are amazed at the Spanish and English vocabulary he has built over the last six months…

Nithilan’s Mom

At Tessa, our daughter is able to grow and learn in an environment that is accepting and open. Learning two languages allows her to engage in a way that shows her there is more to the world than her local surroundings…. We couldn’t be happier with the program and are excited to grow with Tessa.

Evie’s Mom

Tessa has been a wonderful experience for our entire family.  We see our daughter advancing on so many levels and get excited about the learning development she is receiving at this school…

The Effects of Early Educational Bilingualism on Cognitive Development

The Effects of Early Educational Bilingualism on Cognitive Development

When it comes to the topic of bilingualism in early childhood education, many parents often find themselves questioning when – and if – to introduce a second language to their children.
