CURRICULUM:
Our Spanish Language Immersion Program is defined as a method of foreign language instruction in which the regular school curriculum is taught through the medium of the language, 80% Spanish and 20% English.

Spanish is the vehicle for content instruction at The Crayon Box. The children’s ability to accept and understand Spanish comes as they progress through our program month after month.

Initially the children are exposed to spontaneous language, words and phrases that are repetitious throughout the day. Songs, books, manipulatives and words in print all incorporate the bilingual immersion approach. 

As the children become progressively more familiar and comfortable hearing, understanding and responding in Spanish it becomes a natural part of their thought process.

THE ARTS:
Music and dance classes are offered weekly, allowing the children opportunities to express themselves through the arts. Our specialists offer their expertise and enthusiasm for their talent as they share their gifts with our children.
