The Spanish Development Playgroup offers fun, play-based classes that inspire 2-6 year-old children to communicate in Spanish. Communicating across languages and cultures is a routine part of life in our global society. We let children have fun as they develop this invaluable asset.


There is no better time to start than now, when their brains are most receptive to acquiring a second language. Count on us to help them prepare for the future! Enroll today. We serve Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

About Us


The Spanish Development Playgroup was founded by Melanie Oudkerk, a bilingual speech-language pathologist. Over the course of her career, Melanie has helped many children with language delays and disorders achieve competency and fluency both in English and in their home language, Spanish.


Melanie never ceased to be amazed at the speed and efficiency with which many of these children acquired both languages. But she not only wanted to serve children with language delays and disorders, she also wanted to help children with typical language development acquire a second language. So, she decided to start the Spanish Development Playgroup for all preschoolers.

Melanie holds a Master of Arts degree in Speech Language and Hearing Science from Temple University, with a specialty in bilingual language development. She has been providing speech therapy to Spanish and English-speaking preschoolers in Philadelphia for over 10 years. She is a fluent Spanish speaker and enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Our Mission

What Sets Us Apart?
