To all parents and students of The Little Language League,

It is with great sadness that after approximately twenty years, we have to announce that due to the insurmountable challenges imposed by requested rent increases, The LLL will no longer be offering classes at its 22 Purdy Avenue location.

The LLL will continue offering after-school programs to both its private and public school clientele and private classes in the homes of interested parents.

Again, we have loved getting to know you and thank you for the trust you have shown us in giving us the opportunity to teach your wonderful children a second language.

We Want to Make Your Kid Shine

Little Language League is delighted to offer academic excellence in a language school. Our infant, preschool, and kindergarten through grade 8 programs set each child up for future success through our ShineImmersion™ curriculum. Our language programs are the most innovative, captivating, and effective language education for children available anywhere. Now is your chance to give your child the gift of language with the fundamentals of an excellent early education. The ability to speak and think in another language, whether it is Spanish, Italian, French, or Mandarin, will make them shine throughout their entire life.

  • Your child will learn to speak French, Italian, Spanish, or Mandarin like a native speaker
  • Voted Best of Westchester in 2010 by Westchester Magazine for excellence in language classes
  • Montessori methodology with a Reggio Emilia approach (learning through play).

In our classes your child will feel as though they are playing and having fun. Our curriculum is rigorously developed. It has been built upon decades of cumulative research on the science of early childhood development that has highlighted the sensitive periods in which early experience can create either a sturdy or weak foundation for later learning, behavior, and health. We consider ourselves more than just a language school, because we are sensitive to the holistic and individualized development of our children.
