APS Explorers™ Program

At this developmental stage, kids possess their greatest ability to absorb and retain a second language qualitatively similar to their native language. Phonological acquisition is time-sensitive, unlike grammar and vocabulary learning, which can happen at any age. Hence, the emphasis here is on speaking using the Listen. Absorb. Speak.™ method.


We meet weekly for a 45-min class. Classes are limited to 5 students. The presence of guardian during class is only required for the Explorers I and II students.

• Explorers I (6-18 months) Tuesdays at 5:25p.m. and Fridays at 10:30 a.m.
• Explorers II (18-36 months) Wednesdays at 5:25 p.m. and Fridays at 9:30 a.m.
• Explorers III (3-5 yrs) Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. and Thursdays at 5:25 p.m.
