Spanish for Kids!

Cost: $50 deposit + 9 monthly payments of $75 ($725 total) First payment due June 1, 2018. Deposit due at registration. Registration form.

Introduce your child to Spanish through our comprehensive, year-long exploration of language and culture. Taught by Valerie Alves, an experienced preschool instructor and native Spanish speaker, this unique program uses a creative hands-on curriculum to build language skill. A wide variety of activities including games, music, and group interactions build vocabulary that reinforces and encourages successful communication in Spanish. A number of research studies have shown that children who have learned a second language at a young age demonstrate cognitive advantages such as increased problem-solving skills and creativity. Children also develop an interest in and curiosity about different cultures. This class enrolls a maximum of 10 - 12 students. Small class sizes allow for a better learning environment and individualized attention.

This class is a great add-on to our 3- and 4-Year-Old Programs!  Children who attend Spanish at 9:00 am will be walked to their preschool classroom at 10:00 am.
