Studies have shown that children who are exposed to multiple languages at a young age demonstrate cognitive advantages, such as increased problem-solving skills and creativity. They also develop an interest in different cultures, making them more comfortable growing up in our increasingly global society, where languages and cultures intersect every day. Although learning a new language is beneficial at any age, studies have shown that preschool-aged children reap the biggest benefit in adopting a new language due to their curiosity and lack of fear.
Our daily curriculum incorporates Spanish words for all age levels, beginning with the infants. Starting in our Two-year old program, our students work directly with a full time, native-speaking Spanish teacher repeating their weekly lessons in Spanish in our enrichment room. Our approach connects content, culture, and language to allow the children to gain a global perspective.
