About Us

SWC (Small World Connect) Enrichment Center is more than just an enrichment center for children, teenagers and adults: At SWC Enrichment Center we aim to give you a love for exchanging ideas and communicating in many different ways.

When people know how to express themselves whether it is through a language, a song, or a dance, there is no boundary between the individuals: You can get in touch with others by practicing their foreign language but also by practicing their rituals or cultural habits. It makes you part of their group.

At SWC Enrichment Center, we teach children how to express themselves in a foreign language or through song and dance at a very young age. They learn easily, naturally. They have no problem with opening their ears to other sounds and their mind to other language patterns. They are naturally attracted by what is new and they welcome new cultures and ideas.

While learning as an adult, SWC Enrichment Center will guide you not only through how to learn a language but also help you discover a country and his inhabitants: our instructors are all native speakers.

Looking to expand to the Upper East Side on a budget? We also offer space sharing opportunities for you to host your own programs in our space. Visit our share our space page for more information!

At SWC Enrichment Center we aim to help you make the world smaller.
