Alexandria, Virginia - On this Columbus Day -- which we celebrate thanks to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand who hired Christopher Columbus to discover the Americas -- Pilar O'Leary thinks she's got the perfect program for the little Infanta or New World explorer in your life.

No one's too young to learn Spanish,
O'Leary says.

Located in D.C.'s Palisades neighborhood, classes run Monday thru Saturday and include "Mommy & Me" style programs for the littlest learners as well as after-school classes for the older set.
 
"The program's mission is for children to develop an understanding of the Spanish language within a cultural context so that children may gain a greater perspective of the Spanish-speaking world," O'Leary tells Local Kicks.
 
In addition to the fundamentals of the Spanish language, children learn about Don Quixote, dress up like flamenco dancers and knights, and enter the magic of a Velazquez painting.
 
A partner of the Embassy of Spain, Georgetown University and Gala Hispanic Theatre, Isabella & Ferdinand Spanish Language offers classes for first-time learners of Spanish as well as bilingual children.
