Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

At Spanish for fun! we utilize a mix of a total Spanish immersion curriculum, an international curriculum and the creative curriculum of North Carolina developed around using a play-based philosophy as well as paying close attention to each child's social emotional state by exposing them to all 5 love languages (based off of the research done by Dr. Gary Chapman). A play based philosophy means we believe that children naturally engage in and enjoy play as a way of learning on their own terms and at their own pace. Our job as teachers is to provide a safe and nurturing environment and guide them with developmentally appropriate activities and create opportunities for them to explore and learn through play. It is our goal to provide a supportive atmosphere that will encourage each child to develop physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Our curriculum is taught entirely in Spanish, children will learn Spanish in a fun natural way. Our students will not only be exposed to the language but to the whole culture,which will inspire them to explore a world beyond their own.
