"It's great to be in such a friendly environment! From the moment I walk in the door, the atmosphere is always cheerful. I can tell the instructors genuinely care for the children."
Early childhood language classes are in high demand throughout the United States and worldwide. Yak Academy's varied and highly sucessful curriculum options offer great opportunities for business owners to meet this need.
As our communities experience an ever growing global economy, early foreign language education is not keeping up. Unlike in other countries, foreign language curriculum has not been prioritized in the United States. Yet in private and dual-language schools, there are long wait lists for almost all optional language immersion programs. Language classes are in high demand and our schools simply cannot meet the market opportunity. What's more, early foreign language education for children under the age of 6 is practically non-existent in the United States. Few preschools offer foreign language, and those that do struggle to provide quality curriculum, proper instruction, and even the time in the daily schedule to make it a regular offering. Reaching an age group as wide as 1 to 10 years old, and a complete preschool curriculum, Yak Academy's programs are geared up to fill the early language education void in communities around the world.
Learning another language is an amazing accomplishment. But there is so much more to it than just the language skill. Introducing children to a second language as early as possible fosters healthy brain development, encourages positive social skills, and lays a solid foundation for effective communication skills that will last a lifetime. Just a few benefits:
This is not a dull workbook-based program. Research shows that children acquire language best the natural way - through social interactions in a playful, age-appropriate, and supported environment. Our structured thematic units, written so that each child is constantly challenged with new material, engage children in topics they love. With over 175 thematic units, our curriculum covers everything from language basics like Colors, Numbers and Shapes, to rich and exciting units like Dinosaurs, A Bug's Life, Adventures in Space, Life at the Castle, and much more! Classes filled with games, songs and crafts bring smiles to both teachers and students. We maintain an 80% retention rate among families that attend a trial class because they are so engaging. See why the Yak Academy difference is what makes foreign language learning fun!
The best part of all – it’s not just the kids who will love it. Owning a Yak Academy licensed business can be both rewarding and profitable. Be your own boss, and enjoy what you do!
