At Colores Preschool children are immersed in Spanish language and culture. Children are spoken to in Spanish the whole time they are at school and soon they start understanding the language and responding in Spanish. There are many benefits of learning a second language and it is best to start early in life. Please refer to the Resources tab of this website to find additional information and links to research and articles about the many benefits of second language acquisition at any age. Linking research to practice, at Colores Preschool children absorb language, culture and traditions through activities, interaction, stories, poems, music, art, crafts, holidays, community and free play.
