Young Kids’ English Summer Camp
"A child taught a second language under the age of 10 is more likely to speak it like a native." As of 2020, our Young Kids' Summer Camp is now specially designed for 2 to 8 year olds. Our kiddie's centre is purpose built for that age group and our teachers are specialists in teaching these very young learners. The kids also have the opportunity to mix with Irish children while learning, laughing, playing and making friends all through the medium of the English language. We have several kids who have 'graduated' to our 9 to 12 and then to our 13 to 17 year old programmes so we are with them all the way to English language fluency. Indeed some of our past students who came to us as teenagers, now send their kids to our Kids' English Summer Camp.
