  • Full Immersion Spanish Camps

    Research shows that elementary school children are at the optimal age for second language acquisition. Children who speak a second language test higher and speak better. Sign your little ones up for Portal Languages’s full immersion Spanish Camps this summer! Time spent in the summer camp is equivalent to months of language classes for your children. This is an excellent opportunity to have children exposed to a second or third language. The language learning program will come alive through playing the various stations and exhibits of the museum.

  • The Importance of Grandparents at Pretend City

    The Importance of a Grandparent at Pretend City Grandma and Grandpa each hold a big responsibility as a grandparent at Pretend City! Grandparents even hold a very special role in the life of a child. Their roles create a bond deeper than yummy snacks and free caregiving. The staff here at Pretend City fosters this bond by creating special programming and crafts to help grandparents and children better connect. We understand that creating an environment where grandparents and children connect has a profound impact on their grandchild’s child development and emotional well-being.  A study by Boston College researchers found that emotionally close ties between grandparents and their grandchildren reduced depressive symptoms in both groups. While grandchildren offer their grandparents a new life and new ideas, grandparents offer great wisdom and advice. At Pretend City, we encourage our grandparents to use this valuable time to teach their little ones about life through our many exhibits. Knowing that grandparent interaction could lessen anxiety and depression is a big deal! We use this information to even create special days dedicated just for our grandparents. Pretend City is an excellent organization which works to strengthen the bonds between a grandparent and grandchild. You can read together […]
