Spanish Immersion Daycare FAQs

A typical Spanish immersion program involves using Spanish as the medium of instruction. It encourages students to use the language when communicating with their teachers and classmates. An immersion program follows a hands-on approach and that goes beyond simply memorizing essential words.

When your child participates in Spanish immersion, they’ll constantly be interacting with the language through activities and homework. In no time, your little one will master Spanish in the same way as they’ve learned their native language.

Spanish immersion teachers usually follow the Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) method. CLT encourages practicing in Spanish so students can grasp the new language more naturally. Additionally, CLT can help your child develop positive relationships in the classroom.

Our Spanish immersion preschool center in Minneapolis offers total immersion. In this type of program, we use Spanish for all our classes and activities. Sticking to the target language helps our students adapt to learning the language faster than dual immersion.

Being fluent in Spanish isn’t necessary. Our Preschool program welcomes non-Spanish children as well as kids from any cultural background. When enrolled in our program, your child will participate in activities to learn Spanish naturally. To top that off, learning Spanish will help your little one develop better cultural awareness and sensitivity.

Spanish immersion offers the following benefits:

  • Total immersion can help your child fully grasp and learn Spanish.
  • It can improve academic performance and result in higher test scores.
  • As your child learns about Hispanic culture, he or she can learn and embrace diversity.
  • Enrolling in a Spanish immersion school is the first step toward a brighter future.
