About Whistlefritz—The Mission
Headquartered in Glen Echo, Maryland on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., Whistlefritz was founded in 2006 by a mom with a passion for enriching the lives of children through the discovery of a second language. With the knowledge that the “window of opportunity” for learning language opens as early as the toddler years, Whistlefritz’ founding mom developed a Spanish language program for her own children. The program grew into Whistlefritz, a young company on a mission to create entertaining Spanish programs for parents and teachers who want to open the window of language for their own children and students.
