Hi! We're your Little Lemons teachers!
Ms. Arielle (AR-EE-L) & Ms. Nadda (NED-uh)
We are TWO licensed speech-language pathologist bringing you virtual preschool into your homes! I'm an early intervention SLP who has taught the littlest of littles in the preschool and home setting and Arielle is a mama of an 18-month old daughter, and pediatric SLP who has worked in the PreK setting for 6+ years! Together we make an incredible duo.
We've made it our mission to help YOU figure out how to continue engaging your toddlers play, curiosity, learning, and friendships so you can feel confident and excited about “school” during the pandemic.
We can't wait to connect with you and meet you soon!
You'll have an intimate small group of children (less than 15) to develop close peer connections.
Weekly PDF handouts shared with you to extend each theme at home! Includes vocabulary, songs, sensory play, home activities, and book recommendations!
Feel confident in supporting your child's learning. We'll help you help them meeting their milestones, connect with peers and foster their social-emotional relationships (Yes, virtually!).
A weekly thematic curriculum that is creative, engaging, and interactive; designed to enhance your child's learning.
Little Lemons is available monthly!
The Toucan Grow class taught me things about my baby that the pediatrician doesn't have time to explain. Nadda gave us parents more than information. She helped me step back and reflect on the ways I interact with my baby and how I influence her development. She showed me the power of language, and the ways to foster communication, emotional health, and positive relationships. She gave us a safe space to check our assumptions and misconceptions, talk about personal struggles and discover how much we had in common. From societal pressures we're up against to the joys of play. Nadda offers a rich experience of knowledge and community to those who are open and ready to grow with their child.
Sam is so happy when he hears Nadda will be visiting us to play. We are so grateful to have had her support, both for us as parents and for Sam's speech and language development. Most notably, we learned to be more patient with ourselves and understanding that not all children learn and communicate in the same way. Nadda exhibited a great ability to connect with Sam, which is not easy. She genuinely has a passion for wanting to help her families improve and it was visible in every session she had with us!
Yes! We welcome all families interested in participating in Little Lemons. Our class is inclusive and accepting of all children. We have been very mindful of our curriculum to make it engaging and interactive and low pressure for every child. You will also be by child's side facilitating their interactions and participation during class. You also have two certified speech-language pathologists with you each week, we're here to support you :)
