Kindergarten Spanish Immersion

FULL SPANISH IMMERSION

The kindergarten program is full Spanish Immersion. Your child will be guided through expanding their Spanish skills, increase their Spanish vocabulary, work on better comprehension, and are required to display their comprehension through practical knowledge and lessons. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions section below if your child has never learned Spanish before.

LIFELONG LEARNER

Your child will excel in our kindergarten program focused on preparing them for a lifelong interest in education and learning. Our small-class environment stimulates your children’s minds, and builds upon your children’s academic foundations.

START WITH BASICS AND MOVE WELL BEYOND

The teacher will be able to take your children to the next level while encouraging them to use creativity, imagination, and knowledge in a structured, integrated, and hands-on learning environment. The Virginia Standards of Learning will be used as a basic level, moving on to an additional and deeper understanding of all subjects studied.

NO SPANISH EXPERIENCE OR FAMILY BACKGROUND REQUIRED.

Children do NOT need previous exposure to Spanish to participate in the immersion program.

LOW STUDENT-TEACHER RATIOS AND SMALL CLASS SIZES

We offer a 1-8 teacher to student ratio which is much lower than most other private and all public options.  This means your child will excel through much more individual attention from his teachers.

TECHNOLOGY FOCUS

A focus on technology, science, and math will help your Kindergartner compete in today’s world and gain confidence in these important curriculum areas.

CURRICULUM AT A GLANCE

Your child will be encouraged independent thinking and problem solving through self-directed activities. They will learn to be respectful citizens and to be involved in the community. A strong emphasis is placed on reading skills to help your child read above their grade level. Students will further develop their Spanish speaking abilities and use more conversational skills, becoming more confident in their ability to communicate in Spanish with their teachers and peers. Additionally, your child will learn from engaging activities that focus on the following:

  • Social Development
  • Art
  • Music
  • Reading
  • Math
  • Science
  • P.E.
  • Character and Ethics

Frequently asked questions

Extensive studies have shown the benefits and increases to creativity, focus, lateral thinking, and other enhancements that occur in a child’s brain. These last a lifetime. If your child continues to practice their Spanish and become fully bilingual, it will then become a competitive advantage for college and jobs afterwards. It’s an excellent feature to distinguish yourself on a resume! Read more on our page “Benefits of Being Bilingual

This is one of our most-asked questions. It is completely understandable for parents to wonder how their child will be able to follow along when they begin in an immersion classroom. Your child will understand what is going on in class and learn Spanish the same way they learned their first language—naturally.

Your child’s teacher will:

• communicate with your child in the same ways that you communicated with him or her when they were babies and unable to talk,
• use lots of gestures and visual prompts including hand and body cues, inflection, and facial signals to make sure all children in class are able to follow along easily, and
• utilize stories, songs, games, and play to make clear what is being conveyed.

While all of these methods are used to encourage understanding Spanish, there is always a English speaking teacher in the room to translate and clarify when necessary.

Not at all; we teach in both languages to ensure that our students excel in both.

WHAT PARENTS HAVE TO SAY

This is my daughters 2nd year at courthouse, and we love it so much!!! She adores her teacher and really looks forward to going to school everyday! I am so amazed at how much she is learning at 5!! I especially love how loving and friendly everyone is! On the second day of school when she started last year she was already being greeted at the door by name! Another thing I love are all of the fun things they randomly bring to the school. A couple days ago she came home telling me that they brought in all different animals and she got to touch a baby alligator! There are always fun things like this going on and in a great learning environment! I wouldn't want her anywhere else!
