Spanish for fun! Duraleigh, Raleigh
Infant and Toddler Center

Sff! Infant and toddler Center is the most charming center of all, since we receive children from 6 weeks to 2 years old. Tenderness and affection abounds around us.

Every day is a new adventure, our loving teachers are dedicated and careful, they understand that each child has individual needs and different ways of learning, so they take the time to help each child discover, in their own way, a fascinating world of play and learning.

Children become bilingual by learning Spanish in a very natural and active environment that encourages them to be responsible, critical, participative, prepared and open for an intercultural dialogue while remaining conscious of their own cultural identity! Sff! students are offered a variety of possibilities to play, discover and share.

Reviews for Spanish for Fun! Duraleigh-Raleigh

Our son loves SFF and all of the staff at the Duraleigh location that make his day so special. Ms. Eliana, Ms. Claudia, and Ms. Rosita show great care for all of the Buhitos.

Spanish for fun on Duraleigh has been so amazing for our twin boys. Coming into this school, they were very nervous and shy. Every single person there is extremely loving, comforting and caring environment. I will never be able to thank them enough for everything they have done for my children. They nurture the little ones to grow, learn and have fun with their new amigos. At the end of the day, the boys are so sad to leave (literally have to pull one from Ms. Rossy because they love her so much). It is also truly amazing to see them pick up another language so quickly. The staff helps make it a very smooth transition and the kids have a blast while learning. We do not speak Spanish at home and our kids have flourished with the second language.
Thank you SFF Duraleigh!!!!!!

We were so happy to find Spanish For Fun! When our son was 7 weeks old. Since then, he has developed and thrived under the loving care and attention of his teachers at the Infant and Toddler Center on Duraleigh Road in Raleigh. Thank you so much for making Louis and our family feel so at home and at ease with the care you provide for our little guy!

Our daughter started at SFF Raleigh in 2010 at 3 mo. old. The staff have always been so warm and caring towards my daughter and made my transition back to work very easy! Also, from day 1 they have taught her valuable life, social, and learning skills that will stay with her through her entire life!

Our daughter started in 2010 and our son started earlier this Spring. Every single teacher knows both of our children by name. The teachers truly love the babies and their work. A great daycare!!!

Meet Our Duraleigh Director


Ms. Erika Testoni,
Center Director

Erika Testoni native of New York and raised in Puerto Rico. I attended the Caribbean University of Puerto Rico where I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education, concentration in English, back in 2013. I have almost 7 years of experience working with children of all ages.  This year I received my NC Early Educator Certification and I am proud of my accomplishment.

I have worked in Spanish for fun! Glenwood since December 2016, a year in a half assisting in the classroom and as a teacher; I have also worked in the administration area for SFF! as an Assistant Director, Regional Manager Assistant and know SFF! gave me the opportunity to be Director for our Duraleigh location.

I love my job and I am really happy to be part of children’s life. I also appreciate children’s educational and emotional development. Two of my goals are to contribute to the children’s and institution’s development as well as my professional growth through service, and continuous education. Also, be available for families and help in any way as possible.

Personally, I am proud of my family, 6-year-old son Jermaine, and husband.
