Spanish Immersion Preschool Overview
The framework for our original Spanish Immersion preschool program is based on the Creative Curriculum which is fully aligned with the Head Start Preschool, Early Learning Standards and state early learning standards. We offer a developmentally appropriate approach creating context through weekly themes.
Classroom composition and child placement
Our preschool class ratio is no more than 8:1 (eight children per teacher) with each classroom led by at least two teachers/aides at capacity. Our classroom capacities vary by age. Our total preschool capacity is 49 children, spread between 3 classrooms. Class composition is generally based on the median age of the children enrolled in each age group not by chronological age. We do not matriculate children by age but rather when it’s clear that a child’s requirements have changed.
Your child will be assigned to the classroom that is deemed appropriate by both age and observation by the school staff. While Centro Armonia will occasionally make exceptions by request, these requests will only be honored if the needs can be met for both the child. The final decision for class placement lies solely with the school director.
We hold Spanish immersion preschool classes from 9am to 12pm daily and offer flexible schedules on a first come basis, accepting enrollment year-round.
The preschool daily routine below reflects the guidelines by which we organize our day, while the routine remains the same most days, we may extend or shorten an activity to suit the needs of the children that day.
