Welcome to Spanish Immersion
Congratulations! You are making a smart investment in your child’s future.
We are committed to promoting early childhood language acquisition by utilizing fluent Spanish speaking teachers who will incorporate the latest research to provide a safe, fun, language rich environment.
You and your child will participate in language learning in an environment that is fun and exciting. Through the use of songs, games, rhymes and movement, your child will quickly learn many key vocabulary phrases and understand a class taught entirely in the target language.
Our Spanish Language Arts curriculum, Villacuentos, is a research based Spanish curriculum that mirrors the English Language Arts standards that our traditional classrooms use, Storytown. Similarly, we use the Spanish version of the same math curriculum that our traditional classroom use, Math Expressions.
Newcomers to class will immediately be learning in a Spanish only classroom environment. The teacher will only utilize English when it is necessary to ensure student safety. Teachers use a wide variety of movements, visual cues, songs, chants and choral responses to help students quickly acquire the oral language comprehension skills they need to feel comfortable and thrive in a Spanish only environment. Students are encouraged to use Spanish when they are ready to and each child develops at his or her own pace.
