1. Crossing Borders Group, Houston area
Courses / Programs
Conveniently situated in the Rice Village area of south-central Houston TX, Crossing Borders provides quality bilingual preschool programs for toddlers up to kindergarten age kids (18 months - 5 years). Our immersion programs are available in a range of languages - Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, French and English.

Parents can choose to send their child for 2, 3, or 5 days a week. All options are full-day programs. Children learn through age-appropriate music, games, and activities. Most importantly, they have fun and love these classes! We also have learning centers in Spring / The Woodlands and San Antonio, which offer 2-day bilingual preschool programs.

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.

Your child learns the target language in the natural way, picking up words and phrases as they participate in fun and engaging activities.

Parent Testimonial:
"Alex sings songs in Spanish all the time.  She is always counting things, points out colors, but the most amazing thing she does is says full complete sentences.  Most of the time I don't even know what she is saying but when I see her talking fluently in Spanish to the teacher I confirm that she is doing just right. Thank you Crossing Borders!"
- Ms. Alleyne
