FIREBIRD SCHOOL offers a Russian language immersion and child development curriculum for children ages 2-5. We cater to parents who are seeking a safe, stable, highly-stimulating environment which encourages cognitive and intellectual growth at a critical stage of their child's development.

Children will develop their Russian language skills effortlessly through daily play and a creative learning environment. Our curriculum covers many subjects and is adapted to each child individually by age and according to ability: language and culture, mathematics, science, the arts (music, dance and creative arts), physical, personal and social development.

We pride ourselves on the outstanding caliber of our teaching staff who have excellent training and experience from both the U.S. and from Russia. All are committed to jump-start your child's early development through interesting lessons and encounters stimulating and expanding natural curiosity as well as cultural, artistic and cognitive growth.

The school is geared toward two distinct target groups - children from native Russian-speaking families as well as children with little or no exposure to the language or culture. Our learning environment offers children the opportunity to broaden their language potential and acquire a deeper interest and knowledge of Russian culture.
