AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Monday to Friday
(4:30 to 6:30)
Our After School classes are designed for school age children. They will learn how to write, read and understand spanish.
Instruction centers around children learning general vocabulary during each class such as: numbers, colors, days of the week, months of the year, etc. Also specific vocabulary related to each month, for example : in September we talk about Fall, in October we talk about Halloween, in November we talk about Thanksgiving.
The learning of new vocabulary is designed so that children can form sentences and use them in simple dialogues with other children.
9:30 to 11:30 the activities are designed for younger children (ages between 3 to 5 years old). We work the same routines that we do during the preschool.
12:00 to 2:00 the activities are designed for older children ( 6 and up). We work the same routines that we do during the afterschool.
The classes on Saturdays are for those families that cannot attend during the week.
PRIVATE ADULTS CLASSES
Our private spanish classes are individualized to meet the needs of the individual student.
We believe that is important to offer a space for those people that wish to learn spanish for different reasons such as: travelling, business trips, work, create new relationships with people from other cultures or because they really want to learn a new language.
The day and times of these classes are arranged between the student and the instuctor. We also offer English classes (ESL) for children and adults and use the same techiniques as we do with our spanish classes.
Our art and crafts projects are meant to reach more people than our regular students. For this reason we have designed workshops for those families that would love to have a different and special day.

2-year-old programs: We know that even our smallest campers want to have fun exploring! Our activities foster your child’s creativity and build on skills he or she already knows, while recognizing the need for young children to use their bodies as they explore new skills. The youngest participants will enjoy many hands-on activities relating to familiar themes. Teachers use fingerplays, songs, movement activities and quality children’s literature – including pictures and books that promote sign language and Spanish - to enrich the summer camp experience for our 2-year-olds.
3- and 4-year-old programs: Our preschoolers take an in-depth look at real-world topics that are relevant to them. Children participate in activities focusing on language arts, math, science, technology, creative arts, drama, music, movement and character education throughout each theme, and extend their learning through the summer months. The Project Approach is a great way to involve children in directing their own learning and investigating topics that they help to choose. Teachers have flexibility and are encouraged to follow the children’s lead as they plan fun and interesting activities for summer learning.
5-year-old and School-aged programs: Spanish Around the World for older campers takes a project approach, which empowers children to direct their learning based on their interests through authentic experiments and activities. Teachers prompt children to use their imaginations, create their own solutions, and investigate themes as they facilitate and guide the learning process. The children arrange a culminating event or project that not only displays their work but celebrates their achievements.
Throughout the summer, the children may plant a garden, perform a play, organize a museum or prepare some food. The possibilities are endless when the children become involved in making decisions about their learning!
Our program combines all the fun of traditional summertime activities with all the rigor of a Spanish immersion language program. Lead by our talented teaching staff, students learn through a variety of creative exercises (e.g. dance, music, and crafts) and cultural exposition about the Spanish-speaking world.
