Welcome to Little Seeds
We are dedicated to promoting the development of confident, multilingual children who possess an awareness of and respect for cultural diversity. We strive to foster self-sufficiency, critical thinking, and independent learning in each child.
Little Seeds of Park Slope is a small duel language immersion program that adheres to the philosophies of Maria Montessori. As the world changes, so do our local and global environments. The future will bring more diversity, and it will favor individuals who are comfortable operating in culturally and economically diverse environments and speak multiple languages. Learning in multiple languages has been shown to increase intelligence, promote cognitive development and positive self-esteem, and increase verbal and mathematical problem solving. The skills acquired in language immersion education prepare a child to thrive in our increasingly multi-cultural, multi-lingual world.

We approach everyday with imagination, innovation and most of all, fun! That’s why every curriculum includes a variety of intriguing activities that stimulate early brain development with a focus on creative play. And although it may all look like kids having fun, it’s also learning in action. It’s just another way that we make sure your child gets the most out of his or her school experience.
Additionally, we spend a lot of time just listening to and talking with the children. This type of positive interaction encourages the development of emotional, language, and social skills and enhances the development of a positive self-esteem. We also provide lots of opportunities for each child to develop personal interests at his or herown pace.
We believe that when a child is read to from a very early age, that the child has a vast vocabulary, is creative and grows up to have a love of reading. We have integrated lots of reading and story telling into our curriculum, and we encourage parents to continue this at home.
