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.
