Founding Partners

CLIP was founded in Pittsburgh, PA by three moms searching for a fun and engaging language program for their young children. Knowing the advantages that come with being bilingual, they wanted to give their children an opportunity to learn a second language, but they were disappointed with the lack of in-person options close to home. While many schools and daycares in the area offer some language programs, none of them offers the intensive daily practice a person needs to become bilingual.
