Bilingualism is a gift worth sharing! Gift Lelu this holiday season!

Who are we?

Our mission is to make bilingualism a vibrant part of every child's life. 

Five years ago, when Lelu Founder and CEO, Ana Leyva, became a mom, she realized she’d have to get really creative and work really hard if she wanted her kids to grow up as thriving bilinguals in the US. 

“My husband and I knew that bilingualism was a must for our kids. We were living in LA and shocked that even there we couldn’t find the resources to support our bilingualism. The books and tools lacked depth and range of language, and so we started creating our own tools to support our bilingual home - we wrote our own books, created our own at-home aides and other families started asking us for support and guidance. That was really the beginning of Lelu. I realized this problem extended far beyond our home as American parents are increasingly seeing the enormous benefits of bilingualism.” 

This pivotal realization led Ana to pursue master’s degrees at Stanford Graduate School of Education and Stanford Graduate school of Business. Ana is a huge fan of multidisciplinary learning, and has had a transformative educational trajectory-- this  #mompreneur is also the first in her family to go to college (Princeton University) and to get Master's degrees!
