Preschool

 

The immersion preschool program at Spanish With Sarah is taught 100% in Spanish. We offer the flexibility of two, three, or five day options.  Students may also be enrolled in a full-day program three days a week. Class enrollment is not age based. We strongly believe in multi-level classes, as this provides the wonderful opportunity to learn from our peers. Peers who are setting the example benefit from being the leader, making their learning more concrete and well-rounded.

Students are engaged through a language rich activity-based curriculum that recognizes and accommodates the different developmental rates and interests of each student.

The Core Knowledge Preschool Curriculum (http://www.coreknowledge.org/preschool-sequence-at-a-glance) aims to instill a sense of excitement and wonder about the world, to nurture a love of learning and build positive self esteem.  We immerse our young learners in language rich experiences which enable them to explore, question, think creatively, problem solve, develop planning skills, and understand cause and effect.  We also build on emerging literacy and numeracy skills and work to consolidate and extend the abilities and skills of every students.

The Preschool Core Knowledge Curriculum is designed to facilitate many areas of development including:
