Kettering Lingotot Centre
Hi. My name is Carla Sharrock and I have brought Lingotot Kids Spanish classes to the Market Harborough and Kettering areas! I am a mother to a 6 year old gorgeous little girl who is in Year 2 at school.
I always loved studying French and Spanish at school and college. However, I went on to spend 12 years, until 2009, as a Primary School teacher and due to the curriculum at the time, never had the opportunity to combine my teaching with my love for languages.
Since 2009 I have taught children and adults of all ages in many different environments and have also spent the last few years volunteering with a Mencap group, planning and delivering social activities.
Having my little girl and running Lingotot Kettering enables me to combine my love of teaching children with my love of languages and give the time to being a mum.
Lingotot classes are fun, interactive and enable kids to learn another language through songs, games, craft and stories! We offer classes in community centres, nurseries and schools to kids from 0 to 11 years old.
I am currently working in Abeona Nursery and Glendon Farm Montessori Nursery and Learning Community. I am also running After School Clubs in Bringhurst Primary School and Hayfield Cross Church of England School and a Breakfast Club at Mawsley Community Primary School.
If you think your child's school or nursery would like to offer Spanish as part of the curriculum or as a club, are interested in attending our community class, or know of a venue near you and feel there is some interest from mums you know, please get in touch via the phone number above, email email@example.com or visit my Facebook page @lingototkettering and message me.
Currently, due to Covid-19, I am delivering my school clubs online via Zoom. I am delivering them in half term blocks until I am able to deliver back in schools, nurseries and the community.
If you would like to try a class for FREE just contact me to book your taster session!!

Testimonial from the manager at Abeona Nursery, Warkton Lane, Barton Seagrave
All the nursery children love our Thursday Lingotot sessions. It's such a delight to hear them singing independently little songs that they have learnt. The combination of games and stories, songs and actions is a great way to help the children learn a different language without them even knowing it. We love it!

Testimonial from West Lodge Day Nursery, Desborough, Northamptonshire.
"We are coming to the end of our 4th term of Lingotots at West Lodge Day Nursery and we would just like to say how much we enjoy having Carla from Lingotots attend every Wednesday. The group of children she has been teaching are always very excited to go to the sessions and enjoy learning lots of new words every week through songs and stories that she introduces.
Each week Carla plans a fun and exciting activity linked to their learning objectives within which the children thoroughly enjoy taking part. They are then able to take home their fabulous creations at the end of the day that they are very proud of, to show their families and explain all about Carla's fantastic lesson that morning.
Carla herself always shows patience and time for the children and is as equally proud of their development knowing that they have achieved it through her time with them.
We really are looking forward to seeing Carla next term where we can do it all over again!!"
Testimonial from parent of a a pupil who attends an After School Club and has been attending online sessions
Carla Sharrock runs a Spanish Club at Bringhurst Primary school on a Wednesday afternoon from 3.30 - 4.30, my Charlotte goes and she loves it.
During Lockdown this had continued via a Zoom meeting every week, Charlotte was over the moon this happened and when she went back to school Carla catered for them at 4.15.
Five stars from us, so if this is something your little ones would be interested in take a look at Lingotots webpage.
