Welcome to Kids in Spanish Preschool
With a wide range of activities including arts and science, imaginative play and physical activities, our teachers will engage your child’s cognitive, language and motor skills.
Why Kids in Spanish Preschool
Kids in Spanish Preschool is founded and run by two native Spanish speakers who have a passion and love for educating children in an inspiring, immersive environment. We make learning fun because we educate with love and respect in cooperation with parents. Immersion is the best way for children to learn a new language that will benefit them throughout their lives. At Kids in Spanish Preschool, we not only provide a positive language learning experience but a full program of creative, physical and cognitive development to challenge and encourage your child.
Classes are held at the newly renovated Cedarbrae Community Centre. The location is ideally situated in a forested park with an adjacent playground to encourage physical play and exploration of the natural world. Classrooms are bright with large windows to inspire children to consider the environment around them, a key factor in Montessori and Reggio philosophies.
Facilities also include creative art supplies and ample space to create and display artwork. Classrooms are designed to allow children to explore educational materials and self-initiate learning experiences in hands-on, active ways. Finally, ample space will be provided for story, music and dance activities.
Reggio and Montessori Approaches
The Reggio inspired philosophy and Montessori method of education reflect the interests of the children in different learning areas. Students have input and control in their educational experiences and parents are also partners in the educational process.
Tactile, hands-on materials are used extensively in the classroom for enhanced sensory education. Natural and recycled materials are used with the purpose of protecting our environment. Science, art, pre-math, music, stories and free play are all an integral part of the classroom experience.
Students will learn Spanish through a gentle immersion program. Teachers will use a mix of English and Spanish to welcome students into the program at the beginning of the term and gradually transition to a fully Spanish environment.
Students will learn Spanish through stories, songs, class projects and conversation with teachers and other students. All aspects of the program will ultimately be delivered in Spanish, and students will develop a wide vocabulary and conversational skills in Spanish. For example, students will learn to sing songs, tell stories, make presentations and identify colours, months, days of the week and many other vocabulary words in Spanish.
Kids in Spanish Preschool incorporates physical and cognitive learning opportunities in each class. Activities include outdoor exploration walks, sport and playground games, singing, dancing and dramatic acting.
Cognitive learning is accomplished through drawing, painting, sculpting, crafts, story-telling, show-and-tell, science experiments, counting and math activities and imaginative play. A nutrition break is included in every class.
