WHAT WILL YOUR CHILD LEARN WITH US

Our class is instructed by a certified teacher that has experience with Early Childhood Education.  The class will be conducted completely in Spanish so students in the class will get extensive “input”.  They will be following instructions, hearing stories, singing, and doing actions and sometimes crafts. Most importantly they will be hearing Spanish and seeing images to help them understand.  Our curriculum goes with the seasons and we expand themes for each one.  For the first semester we went over topics like greetings, body parts, verbs for movement, clothing, weather, etc.  We learned several songs and some mindfulness techniques as well that are instructed in Spanish.  We are continuing with themes that go with the seasons and will continuously use what we learned last semester and build on that.  This semester we will teach the same way but incorporate new themes like animals, family, additional verbs for movement and seasonal activities.  Everything that is taught is done so with comprehensible input so children are learning beyond just our explicit objectives.  We are very proud of our program and the service we are giving to the community.
