2016-2017 Nursery School year
In the Nursery year program we let the seasons guide our curriculum. Children explore the natural world through a daily & weekly rhythm filled with cooking, planting, painting, outdoor play, purposeful work and arts & crafts. Through the process of doing and playing the children learn Spanish in context while engaged in meaningful and fun activity.
Flow of the Day
The Daily Rhythm and Weekly Rhythm is important to the developing child and integral to a language immersion environment. Students will take comfort in the daily routine knowing what to expect at any given moment. As students move from one activity to the next, songs and poems make those transitions gentle. Meanwhile, their Spanish language skills will grow naturally in a nurturing environment.

For our daily group activity, we follow a rhythm within the week. This gives the children a sense of comfort and a sense of time. For example, they look forward to kneading dough and making bread loaves on Tuesday...which they know they will eat for Wednesday Snack! They smell the delicious bread baking as they enter the classroom every Wednesday morning.
