We offer a totally comprehensive preschool curriculum, so the children learn the fundamental skills that are taught at other preschools but with the invaluable added benefits of language immersion. Our goal is not simply to teach the children Spanish, but to fully prepare them for elementary school, and enrich them with the gift of the Spanish language culture along the way.

Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

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

From the Director:

Give your child the gift of the Spanish language through our comprehensive, hands-on academic preschool. The children experience all the joys of preschool - we just do it all in Spanish! Our unique curriculum teaches essential early childhood skills and prepares children for higher education. The children absorb the Spanish language and culture wile acquiring these skills, therefore having the benefit of both education and language. Along with the academics, the children will learn the Latin culture through their native Spanish speaking teachers. One important part of the Latin culture is manners. We teach respect, waiting our turn and saying "Please and Thank you". In our school, we believe that if a child experiences learning as fun and positive, he/she will become a life long learner. We focus on teaching the children to make good choices, making learning fun and hands-on, and keeping a energetic, positive attitude in our school at all times. "We teach children naturally through play, activities, books and conversation. The children have a great time while acquiring the Spanish language and culture. In the world today, everyone needs to speak a second language and kids learn at an incredibly fast rate. Give your child the opportunity that only comes once. Let them learn a second language the fun, natural way while acquiring early childhood academics!

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

We know that children learn at different paces. Due to our low ratios, our teachers can individualize and give each child what they need. Through one on one time and variety in teaching methods, each child is given the opportunity to learn new things everyday and progress academically as well as socially.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

To prepare children for Kindergarten and immerse the students in the Spanish language for natural language learning.

A Typical Day

Each day, your child will experience circle time, books, pre-math and pre-science activities, art, music and of course, immersion in the Spanish language. Throughout the year, he/she will enjoy many extra activities such as petting zoos, bike parades and fiestas.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

We keep our parents informed with a daily online calendar as well as a folder that goes between home and school with weekly notes, calendar and school work. We have an open door policy and have open communication with parents at all times.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation
  • Parents in classroom early on

Handling Separation: From the Director

We want the children to love coming to school! We know separation can be hard. We have a "Meet the Teacher" before school starts as well as extra staff for the first few weeks of school. Additionally, we always have a fun morning activity (painting or playing in shaving cream) so that the kids are distracted from the fear of separation. We give a lot of hugs everyday to every child so that the children feel positive and secure at school
