Youngsters will be able to speak in French and Spanish as they learn English to help them get to grips with languages more easily.
Janet Phillips is setting up the lessons after buying a franchise from UK-wide company Lingotot earlier this year.
She hopes the lessons will help broaden opportunities for Scottish children, and has seen how easily younger children learn languages.
“I was looking after my four-year-old grandson, Archie, and he was watching a CBBC programme called The Lingo Show,” said the mum-of-two.
“I know that the earlier children learn new languages the easier they pick it up, so watching Archie made me think about setting up a business to teach children languages.”
Janet, a self-employed HR consultant since 1993, gained a masters degree in translating and interpretation and was only too aware of how being able to speak other languages opened doors of opportunity.
After 20 years being a consultant, Janet wanted to a new opportunity herself, so started looking into establishing her own business.
She said: “I worked a lot at home and it is a lonely job. I wanted to do something where I got to meet new people and when I started researching, I found the Lingotot website.
“The branding is so good and the more I looked at the product the more I saw just how well thought out it was. So, I decided to make a call to find out more, because it would be much quicker than having to set everything up from scratch yourself.”
Within a couple of months, Janet had bought the franchise covering Glasgow West and North Helensbrough.
She is now setting up local sessions and will also be offering Lingotot lessons to schools as they gear up for introducing languages to lessons.
Janet said: “The Scottish Government has set up a working group actively looking into foreign modern languages and want to young children to be introduced to two languages by 2020.
“Many schools may not have teachers who will be able to provide the lessons, which is where they can bring Lingotot into school to do that for them.”
Lingotot already links with Key Stages 1 and 2 in England, and its sessions are already being used in schools there.
The business was set up by mum-of-two Angela Sterling, who was taking time out from teaching after the birth of her first daughter.
Teachers and parents were so impressed with the sessions they asked her to introduce books and CDs so that lessons could continue at home.
Angela said: “We are delighted to welcome Janet to Lingotot, especially as she is the first franchisee in Scotland. The sessions she will manage will help toddlers get to grips with language earlier and help improve their future prospects.”
