WHY A SPANISH IMMERSION PROGRAM IN THE QUAD CITIES?
Absolutely, Positively, Kids! Early Learning Academy takes child care and learning to the next level. We offer a Spanish Immersion Preschool for children ages 3 years to 5 years old. Children are taught a new language, plus age-appropriate academics in a formal school environment through the use of highly effective immersion-style teaching methods. APK! is perfect for families who believe in and understand the importance of diversity, culture, and the ability to speak multiple languages in our global economy.
Children are surrounded by teachers whose native language is the target language for the child. We strive to have each child understanding and speaking a second language at their age-appropriate levels after only one year.
PRESCHOOL 2 – 3 YEARS OLD
For our youngest preschool students, we make our environment very warm, safe, and nurturing. They are immersed in the target language (Spanish). Teachers introduce the children’s new language and culture through play, songs, individual and group interactions, and age-appropriate activities that capture and hold their attention.
PRE-KINDERGARTEN 4 – 5 YEARS OLD
Through our Spanish Immersion Program, Pre-K students learn in a social and academic environment that helps them to become fluent bilingual speakers. Students are highly engaged and proactively practicing and speaking their new language. Our Spanish Immersion Curriculum focuses on math, science, reading and writing skills, as well as social interaction. Teachers continue to build upon lessons taught in the earlier years. Interaction through games, songs, and a variety of activities help children achieve their learning goals!
