A Buckingham mumpreneur is set to bring language lessons to kids in the area, after setting up a new franchise business that teaches French and Spanish.

Former school teacher, Laura Langley, 37, who lives in Buckingham will open a Kidslingo franchise in September, teaching French and Spanish to children from birth to age 11. Her offering will operate in areas around Buckingham, Bicester, Winslow and Leighton Buzzard.

Kidslingo is a children’s language franchise business that teaches French and Spanish to over 12,000 babies, toddlers and primary school kids through a national network of over 130 franchisees and tutors.

Its innovative approach is based on the science of learning, and uses a clever mix of music, games, Makaton, role-play, drama and storytelling. Kidslingo works with private families, preschools, nurseries and primary schools all over the UK.

Prior to Kidslingo, Laura worked as a secondary languages teacher at Akeley Wood. She said:

After 14 years in secondary education, I was ready for a fresh challenge. Setting up a Kidslingo franchise seemed the perfect way to combine my love of languages and a passion for teaching.

Not only that, but it means that I can carry on doing what I love, without missing out on precious time with my own children. Learning languages is so important, and I am really excited about being able to inspire the very youngest of learners to love languages, through fun, interactive and memorable lessons.

She said: "I have encouraged my own children to take an interest in languages, and seeing them both respond so well to learning Spanish from a young age at school really motivated me to pursue this opportunity to teach younger learners.

"If anyone is looking for language lessons that make the grade, please get in touch!"
