Meet the Playground Pal of the Week. ____________________ THE MATSUMOTO FAMILY bethesda, maryland

Meet Takumi, 4.5 years Q: WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES THE PLAYGROUND SO SPECIAL? There is a big variety of exciting classes that are good for his sensibility and good for him physically and educationally. It covers the elements necessary for early childhood education.

Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR OR YOUR KIDDO’S FAVORITE CLASS MOMENTS AND WHY? My son gets so excited when the teacher calls his name during the class. It is an interactive class, so children will be motivated. When my son is unmuted by a teacher during class, he is surprised, but he’s so happy to be able to talk directly with the teacher.

Q: WHAT IS MOST SURPRISING TO YOU ABOUT TAKING KIDVILLE CLASSES ONLINE? Every week, they prepare various themes to keep children from getting bored. They know what children love and are interested in. Kidville teachers are professional and entertaining geniuses!
