RE: One of two “specialist taught” subjects included in Foundations tuition – children receive in-depth Spanish instruction every week.

El Programa (The Program)

Children are introduced to Spanish in a fun-filled immersion setting. Through a developmentally-appropriate curriculum, children will learn Spanish the natural way – through hearing, doing, repeating and playing. The classes are organized around themes that are part of a child’s daily life such as colors, numbers, animals, and gradually increasing in complexity and themes.

Las Clases (The Classes)

  • Chiquititos (The little ones) Ages 0-4
    For the infants and toddlers, we will focus on improving their oral proficiency as well as moving into basic sight words via music, visuals, and simple repetition.
  • Grandes (The older ones)
    Pre-Kindergarten through 6th Grade We will to review the basic concepts and ideas as well as transitioning into the oral and written components of the language by forming simple sentences/expressions and vocabulary involving friends and family, going places, expressing emotions and descriptive words. We will also learn about aspects of Hispanic cultures.

  • Score higher on standardized tests
  • Experience advanced mental development
  • Develop a deeper understanding of their own and other cultures
