Kids Into Speaking Spanish Kiss: Kids Into Speaking Spanish (KISS) is a total Spanish immersion program for preschool and kindergarten age children (from 2 to 6 years), with two locations in the East Bay region of San Francisco Bay Area: Walnut Creek (East of Oakland in Contra Costa County) and Montclair, Oakland, CA. The schools are a safe and exciting place for children to grow and learn. We provide a wonderful program designed to prepare your child for academic success. About 95% of the activities are conducted in Spanish. The core of our curriculum consists of activities and participation in cultural experiences such as singing, dancing, art projects, cooking, and games - all done entirely in Spanish.
Our success over the last seven years is a testament to our innovative program. Our students gain proficiency in Spanish much in the same way they learn English or any native language - by integrating it into their lives on a daily basis. At Kids Into Speaking Spanish, all of the instructors we hire are native speakers because the KISS program emphasizes proper pronunciation and exposure to various aspects of Latin culture. We believe that creating an environment where children have fun, while being exposed to the Spanish language paves the way for greater receptivity to learning the language in a more structured setting later.

Robbin's Nest Preschool and Kindergarten, Los Angeles County
Courses / Programs
Located in La Crescenta, Los Angeles County, CA, Robbin's Nest Preschool and Kindergarten offers preschool and kindergarten programs focusing on child development and on the daily activities which are of interest to children at this age (ages 2-5 years). We are aware of the needs and expectations of parents and strive to complement the family structure catering for children from La Crescenta, La Canada Flintridge, Glendale, Montrose, Briggs Terrace and surrounding communities.
We believe that experience in a good child care setting can prepare children for later life experiences. This can best be accomplished in an environment in which the adults promote self-expression and creativity, but also pay attention to the importance of self-control and mutual respect.
The climate at our school encourages children to make choices, take responsibility for these choices, and develop self-discipline. In an atmosphere of trust and respect, each child finds opportunities to realize his/her own self-worth and personal growth.
