About Us

 

Founded by a mom and science teacher, grounded in diverse values, with an understanding of how the world is changing, Sprinkle Stars Twinkle located in the Bronx offers a French, Mandarin, and Spanish Immersion program that accepts children from ages 3 to 4 years. Science is finding out about the everyday world around us. Our play-based approach to Science, French, Mandarin, and Spanish immersion will be a favorite for families who see the world changing and wish to prepare their children with the gift of multilingualism and S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) in a fun and engaging way. Sprinkle Stars Twinkle is building a diverse community of families committed to creating multilingual and scientific literate children.

 

Sprinkle Stars Twinkle is an Early Childhood Learning facility that provides an environment in which children learn in the context of self-expression, wonder, and play. There are no foreign language lessons, no reading lessons, and no math lessons. Yet children become fluent in multiple languages, develop a love for reading and stories, become capable of numeracy, and begin to develop a knowing relationship with nature, express themselves creatively, and acquire a conceptual understanding of how their body works in the course of group and individual play, song, and walks. And, because they are learning multiple languages, their cognitive capability increases in ways that research shows will lead to higher academic performance and standardized test scores during their elementary and secondary school years. Why? In part, because acquiring multiple languages leads to a mental agility that serves children in all academic areas, and particularly in acquiring fluency in multiple languages.

What if my child is ready to learn to read and write at an early age? 

Children who are ready for our multi-language literacy curriculum will be offered the opportunity to take it on, regardless of their age! Class sizes are small enough to easily individualize. That said, our focus in the pre-school years is on cognitive development over rote learning. Their brains are still developing, and we want to create neurological pathways for higher-order thinking skills.

 

The Creative Curriculum provides an opportunity for inquiry-based play, exploratory projects, and creative expression and we help students cultivate these skills. We instill the habits of mind that nurture intellectual curiosity and intellectual confidence for a lifetime. That is our goal. Our multi-language literacy program teaches a Kindergarten curriculum of reading, writing, and arithmetic skills in French, Mandarin, Spanish, and English, using a 50/50 immersion model. We offer the multi-language programs during our before and after-school programs. Our goal is to produce students on a track for S.T.E.A.M., reading and writing in French, Mandarin, Spanish, and English. These tools will prepare them for high school, college, and their future careers.

Our Mission

Sprinkle Stars Twinkle cultivates the natural curiosity and language genius of young children.

 

We do this by providing nurturing care; and immersing children in the French, Mandarin, and Spanish languages through play, creative activities, and exploration of their environment.

Our Vision

To help create a generation that is able to serve as bridge builders, peacemakers, and citizen diplomats, because they are globally and academically competent, fluent in various cultures, multilingual, and conscious of the planet’s environment and the importance of social justice.

Our Philosophy

We believe that care and guided learning should follow the natural developmental stages of children. What preschoolers need most is nurturing, gentle, and affirming care; opportunities for independence as well as guided learning; structured and unstructured time; and both group and individual activities. Most of all, they need an environment rich with opportunities to explore, discover, wonder, create, build, and play.  

Shared Values Community

Research shows that being cared for, learning, and socializing in a community of shared values supports the emotional well-being of children. We are a community of families and educators who value the holistic, the child-centered, the organic, the creative, the multicultural, and the celebration of differences and commonalities.

Our Location: 

Sprinkle Stars Twinkle is located in an urban environment, a co-op community on the ground floor of the lobby.  Our license will allows us to operate out of a commercial space completely renovated to educated pre-school children. Our community is filled with trees, gardens, birds, squirrels, and the various organisms in their specific habitats that comprises a part of our nature exploration laboratory. Our community also serves as a wonderful place to enjoy an outdoor lunch and playground fun. 

This Kind of Fun Can Occur in any Language. 

 

At Sprinkle Stars Twinkle, we take advantage of the fact that the young brain is primed for multiple language acquisition. As your children play and explore, we will immerse them in the French, Mandarin, and Spanish languages. We may immerse them in other languages in the future — all to take advantage of the brain's amazing capacity to acquire language in early childhood.

Time in Nature, Healthy Eating and Family

Time: 

We value time in nature; feeding young bodies organic healthy meals delivered daily through Red Rabbit; and strong ties between Sprinkle Stars Twinkle and home. We explore our environment, discover our own biology, and work hard to support parents in spending quality time with their children. From support with meals to our family outings, we encourage community. We encourage the making of items, and purchase many culturally relevant materials.
