At the Scandinavian School we believe that language and culture are very close related. Our language classes for children will not only provide the children with a spoken and written Scandinavian language, but also a basic knowledge about the Scandinavian cultures.
Our Menlo Park Program is an "offsite" program offering language classes for Swedish speaking children, who live in the Mid-peninsula Area. If you are interested in Swedish language programs South of Palo Alto The Swedish School in Silicon Valley (located in Los Gatos) offers Swedish programs for children of many ages.
