About Us

Spanish Immersion Preschool and Childcare Program

The main goal at Casa Club Spanish Immersion preschool is to learn while having fun, improve social skills, and encourage creative expression.


We believe in the importance of acquiring a second language and that the easiest way to do so is during the first years of childhood. We are committed to your children learning Spanish at the same time they develop their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive skills.

Fully Inclusive Facility

We provide equal opportunities to all children, no matter their developmental level or abilities, so that they can have access to the good quality education they deserve.

Our Goal

Provide children a clean, safe, comfortable, loving, home-like environment, where they can play and learn.

Environment

Provide learning opportunities for children by giving them key tools that will help them learn throughout their childhood while being engulfed in Spanish immersion.

Programs

We present the same type of activities that other centers and preschools teach at non-immersion centers such as: circle time, reading, science, manipulative and art while speaking in Spanish.

Much More

We will utilize a variety of activities planned on a weekly basis to accomplish our goals. 


These developmentally appropriate activities are based on children’s interest and individual development. The children will have access to five areas daily: library, art, dramatic play, blocks, manipulative play, and science and math. At least twice weekly the children will have the opportunity to participate in music and rhythm (music helps to develop young brains and will play a strong role in day-to-day activities.), water and sand play, and physical education. We will work as a group and individually to scaffold children’s learning.


Infants will benefit from individual early stimulation activities planned bi-weekly per individual developmental needs. Children will experience complete Spanish immersion every day.

 I was born in a small town in Venezuela where I grew up in a large family with five siblings and my parents. I studied at a university in a neighboring town from where I received my bachelor's degree in psychology. I did volunteer work with abandoned children, teens with challenging behaviors and case work with children from two to 10 years old. I have been working at Casa Club since March 2016 and feel fortunate to be part of such a great team.

 I have been working at Casa Club since 2014. I graduated from UNC-CH with a bachelor's degree in psychology. Prior to working at Casa Club, I worked at Morehead Planetarium as a science educator. I am currently working at Morehead on the weekends so you might see me there! My hobbies include going to movies, watching T.V. and watching soccer (FC Barcelona is my favorite team). The only odd fact about me is that I do not like chocolate (except white chocolate!).

I was born in Guatemala and moved to the U.S. 23 years ago. I am married and I have three children and one grandchild. I really enjoy my work at Casa Club. I like to help others and love working with children. I find great satisfaction in seeing them happy and thriving. I love how happy they get when I arrive in their classrooms with their food.

I was born in Venezuela and I came to the U.S. in 2013. I started working for Casa Club in 2015. I first gained experience working with children back when I lived in Venezuela. I worked with my mother and grandmother who were also day-care teachers. I am currently studying Early Childhood Education at Wake Technical Community College. I also have musical experience, as a singer, composer and arranger. I use my musical talents by helping the children learn more and easier.

I was born and raised in Colombia. I have three children and two grandchildren. My passion for working with infants started 18 years ago when I volunteered in the infant classroom at the Head Start Migrant Center in Winston, NC. It was then that I decided to study Early Childhood Education, obtaining my credentials and C.D.A. in this field in 2001. I joined Casa Club in November 2014. My hobbies include swimming, walking and spending time with my family, friends and co-workers.
