Children in our preschool programs learn through age-appropriate music, games, and activities. Most importantly, they have fun and love these classes!

Children taking part in our language immersion programs enjoy the best of both worlds: bilingualism and high-quality education. They participate in traditional preschool activities with a teacher who delivers the majority of instruction in the target language with minimal English support.
