    Comment:  Type: PreschoolAbout the facility: Has afterschool optionsReview: My son attended Lango 2 mornings per week as a 3-year old in the Spanish class. I was really happy with it. Ana, the teacher, has so much enthusiasm and really cares for the children, as does her assistant, Adriana. We chose Lango for language acquisition, and I was thrilled with my son's development. Within weeks, he could identify Spanish overheard on the street. And months later, he was teaching his little brother Spanish words and singing the songs from school daily. He always left school so happy with a lot to say about his mornings there. The class was small, maybe 8 kids with 2 adults. My son loved going to the nearby playground, the many art projects, and the songs. He loved his teachers. The only downside for me was the long walk to and from center slope.

    Comment:  Program: Mandarin Length of time: 3 days a week 9-3 plus aftercare Child’s Age: 3-4 yearsType of facility: Privately run daycare/preschool with multiple classes and teachersREVIEW: I like the laid back and fun approach lango takes. There aren't any high pressure parents, and it's fine if you're a bit late in the morning or switch around your schedule. At times, I wished the programming could be a bit more preparatory for pre-k, but in the end, we sent our daughter there for language acquisition, and we are very pleased with her progress in that regard. The teachers are all really sweet and invested in the students, and they pay attention to the desires of the parents. We are overall very happy with both the preschool and summer camps.Would you recommend? Highly recommendWould you send your child again? Maybe

    Comment:  Program: Mandarin Immersion Preschool Length of time: 9-12pm (Part Time), 2 days a week Child’s Age: 2-3 yearsType of facility: Privately run daycare/preschool with multiple classes and teachersREVIEW: Lango is a fun, low-key Mandarin immersion preschool program. The teachers are warm, energetic and caring. I was disappointed by the midyear staff changes with the assistant/second teacher and the fact the main teacher left for a month or more for vacation. It was not as disruptive as I had imagined it might be but I still found myself trying to explain to my child where his teacher went. The school was pretty communicative throughout the time my child was enrolled and kept us informed about discipline issues at drop off/pick up or via email. We asked a lot of questions and felt like they were always very informative, responsive and helpful.Would you recommend? RecommendWould you send your child again? Probably not

    Comment:  This is an unsolicited plug for a super fun Mandarin Chinese class that Maddie (my 3yo) and I just took. We were the only ones there (which seems like just about my worst nightmare), however the teacher is silly and dynamic and a reluctant 3 year old and I had a really fantastic time!Over the last 6 years of kids, I have been to a lot of Mandarin classes, and this one is particularly modern and play based with fun music and is surprisingly one of the few I have found in Park Slope.
