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.
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.
Provide children a clean, safe, comfortable, loving, home-like environment, where they can play and learn.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
Provide learning opportunities for children by giving them key tools that will help them learn throughout their childhood while being engulfed in Spanish immersion.
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.
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.
